Despite evangelicalism's strong truth-heritage, the spirit of the postmodern age--with its rejection of absolutes and beliefs of any kind--is threatening the health of the church and the faith of many of God's people. Only a return to our theological roots--the biblical doctrines summarized by the solas of the Reformation--can keep the evangelical church standing strong.
Which truths are most crucial for Christians to recover? Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone), solus Christus (Christ alone), sola gratia (grace alone), sola fide (faith alone), and soli deo Gloria (glory to God alone). Without them, the evangelical church will lose its distinctiveness and fail to carry the Gospel into the new millenium. We must recover the historic Christian faith--a robust theology that entails a great view of God and an informed focus on the doctrines of God's grace. That recovery begins with the biblical truths shared in these pages.
