From the Back Cover
The Heart of the Gospel
In today's culture where tolerance is the new absolute, James White proclaims with passion the truth and centrality of the doctrine of justification by faith.
"Finally--a contemporary, exegetical, doctrinal, and able defense of the historic Protestant doctrine of justification by God's free grace by faith in Jesus Christ alone. This is the best book on justification since James Buchanan's mid-nineteenth-century classic. We need to teach this material to uor congregations."
--Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
"I lost sleep over this book! I simply couldn't put it down. James White writes the way an exegetically and theologically oriented pastor appreciates. This is no book for casual reading; there is solid meat throughout. An outstanding contribution in every sense of the words!"
--Dr. Jay E. Adams, Author, Competent to Counsel and Godliness Through Discipline
Once the core of the Reformation, the church today often ignores or misunderstands this foundational doctrine. White calls believers to a fresh appreciation of, understanding of, and dedication to the great doctrine of justification and then provides an exegesis of the key Scripture texts on this theme.

Works righteousness is alive and well in the world and even the vast majority of professing "evangelicals" are losing touch with the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. This book is a cold splash of water to the face of those who have dozed off into the world of dead orthodoxy and carnal man centered efforts to atone for our sins.
A perfect reminder that the Gospel is "Good News" indeed!
In this book, Dr. James White looks at the doctrine of justification. He examines what it means to be justified and how God justifies lost sinners who have broken His laws and have rebelled against Him. Dr. White points to the gospel as our only hope for justification. It is not through our works or the goodness of the Church but through Christ alone that we are justified. The focus of justification is not on us but on God. As Dr. Sproul wrote, "God saves us by Himself from Himself."
I do highly recommend this book. If you are studying the doctrine of salvation or what to know how we are justified before a holy God, this book is a must read. The Scriptures are clear that we are justified before God because of the work of the Lord Jesus (Romans 3:21-26; 5:1). Our justification is based not on what we do but upon the work of Christ (Hebrews 10:10, 14). In essence, Jesus is our justification.
