1. The Doctrine of Justification By James Buchanan

Doctrine of Justification by James Buchanan

‘The doctrine of justification by faith is like Atlas: it bears a world on its shoulders, the entire evangelical knowledge of saving grace … This is still the best text book on the subject…’ – J. I. Packer

“James Buchanan’s ‘Doctrine of Justification’ is THE classic work on this cardinal doctrine by which a church stands or falls. After lucidly covering the historical development of the doctrine through the Old Testament, the apostolic age, the scholastic divines, the Reformation and Counter Reformation, and in the Church of England, Buchanan expounds the doctrine itself by covering the scriptural meaning of the term, its relation to the law and justice of God, its relation to the mediatorial work of Christ, its relation to grace and works, and more. The chapter on justification in relation to the work of the Holy Spirit is alone worth the price of the book. Throughout, Buchanan systematizes the doctrine of justification in an orthodox Reformed manner that is fully reliable, is consistent with all the doctrines of grace, and is still relevant to the burning issues of our day, such as the New Perspective. A new introduction by Dr. Gerald Bilkes on the New Perspective is also a great help. If you can only afford to read one book on justification, read this definitive work.” – Joel R. Beeke

2. The Religious Affections By Jonathan Edwards

Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards

A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections is a famous publication written in 1746 by Jonathan Edwards

describing his philosophy about the process of Christian conversion in Northampton, Massachusetts during the Great Awakening, which emanated from Edwards’ congregation starting in 1734

The author’s object in this book is to distinguish between true and false religion by showing the marks of a saving work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. In his Preface, Edwards stresses the importance of using “our utmost endeavors clearly to discern … wherein true religion does consist.” For “till this be done, it may be expected that great revivings of religion will be but of short continuance.”

3. Commentary on Galatians and Ephesians By John Calvin

Commentary on Galatians and Ephesians is an impressive commentary. Calvin is regarded as one of the Reformation’s

Galatians and Ephesians by John Calvin

best interpreters of scripture. He frequently offers his own translations of a passage, explaining the subtleties and nuances of his translation. He has a penchant for incorporating keen pastoral insight into the text as well. He always interacts with other theologians, commentators, and portions of the Bible when interpreting a particular passage. Further, this volume also contains informative notes from the editor. Calvin’s Commentary on Galatians and Ephesians should not be ignored by anyone interested in those books or John Calvin himself.

“The fundamental issue for John Calvin, from the beginning of his life to the end, was the issue of the centrality and supremacy and majesty of the glory of God.” — John Piper
