The perennial problem of the misunderstanding concerning the nature of faith has produced a variety of theological errors as well as pastoral problems for the church. In a day of rampant theological confusion concerning justification by faith the nature of faith is paramount. This book provides a penetrating examination through exegetical precision, concerning the nature of faith. For those who believe in ""faith alone in Christ alone"" this book will guide you into an understanding of what faith is and what it is not. This is a book that needed to be written and a book that must be read. -- Earl Radmacher, ThD, President Emeritus, Western Seminary Most evangelical Protestants agree that salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone. However, what they cannot agree on is the meaning of faith. Are there different kinds of faith in the Bible? Is there saving faith and non-saving faith? Is faith a matter of the mind, or the mind and the emotions, or the mind, emotions, and will? Is faith active or passive on the part of the believer? Is it a gift of God or a work of man? All these questions and many more are explored in depth by Chay and Correia. They have done a commendable job of dealing with words studies, grammatical nuances, and debated passages. Such a work is long overdue. --Dave Anderson, PhD, President and professor of Theology, Grace School of Theology; President, Free Grace Alliance About the Contributor(s): Fred Chay, Th.M., Ph.D., is Professor of Theology ad Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program at Phoenix Seminary.
