Unity in the gospel is essential to the witness of the church. Yet that unity was tested by the release of two documents, Evangelicals and Catholics Together and The Gift of Salvation, which appeared to surrender the historic doctrine of sola fide (faith alone). In response, Christian leaders released a statement called The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration.
Getting the Gospel Right, a companion to R. C. Sproul's popular Faith Alone, contains the complete text of that statement, along with thorough, point-by-point discussion and exposition, to make a strong declaration of the abiding unity of evangelicals regarding the gospel and justification by faith alone.
Unity in the gospel touches the soul of the church itself and all of its members. After all, "to be faithful to the Great Commission," R. C. Sproul explains, "we must get the gospel right."
"Some of us just want to get the gospel right;some of us just want to get it out. With a generous combination of love and conviction, R. C. Sproul helps us all to do both better."-- Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary in California
