Item Description...
The Lutheran confessions call the doctrine of justification by faith alone the "chief article" of the Christian faith. Clarifying and defending this article of faith have been the major concern of Lutheran theologians since the sixteenth century. It is not surprising, then, that one of today's most prominent Lutheran thinkers, Gerhard O. Forde, has chosen to devote most of his career to probing the depths and developing the implications of the doctrine of justification. And as this volume aptly indicates, Forde's teaching and publications, his public lectures and sermons, and his influence on ecumenical scholarship and debate constitute one of the most important contributions to a theological understanding of justification in the second half of the twentieth century. By Faith Alone celebrates Professor Forde's distinguished career, but it also goes well beyond by offering a sustained and serious engagement with his theological motif. Written by twenty theologians from seven countries and several different Christian communions, the book provides a full-orbed, cutting-edge discussion of the doctrine of justification from a wide range of perspectives. The first set of essays explores the theological foundations of the doctrine of justification. The next set examines some key moments in the doctrine's historical development as well as its ecumenical trajectory. The last set of essays asks how the doctrine of justification applies to church life today, including such ecclesiastical concerns as preaching and pastoral care. A rich collection of lively and profound thinking, By Faith Alone is an ideal resource for teachers, preachers, church leaders, and all those pursuing a deeper understanding of Christian belief.

Publishers Description
The Lutheran confessions call the doctrine of justification by faith alone the "chief article" of the Christian faith. This engaging volume, like the notable scholar it honors, probes the depths of the doctrine of justification and develops its implications for the life of today's church. The perspectives and backgrounds of the contributing scholars also make this book a significant ecumenical event.

So What if He's Soft on Sanctification?  May 5, 2006
I don't have the theological qualifications or the cojones to attempt a real critique of this festschrift for one of the great (and, sadly, late) warriors for the Article of Justification at the heart of what it means to be a Christian, so I'll say simply that this anthology shows that Justification is a concern that is incredibly broad and deep, and never boring. "By Faith Alone" shows that justification by faith alone for the sake of Christ isn't owned by Lutherans, but that Forde understood and explained it best of all among Lutherans of the 20th century.
Not just more of Forde from different sources  Feb 20, 2006
After reading all of Gerharde Forde's books at least twice, some as many as six times, I was anticipating reading other men with a similar perspective on the gosdpel of the grace of God who had been affected by his ministry. With very few exceptions, I was severely disappointed. They are either men coming from a different perspective or they did not learn their lessons well. If you are anticipating more of Forde from other sources you will be disapponted as well. However, if you are looking for a wide range of perspectives on what Forde preached, though not necessarily with a similar understanding, then you may appreciate the book, as the men are well-recognized scholars. I'm going to try to sell mine.
