    The doctrines of grace are often known as the five points of Calvinism, but they were not the invention of John Calvin or his reforming cohorts of the sixteenth century. Rather, they are biblical doctrines, as Dr. Steven J. Lawson demonstrated in his book Foundations of Grace (2006). Now, in Pillars of Grace, Dr. Lawson shows that the doctrines of grace have been understood and taught sometimes in embryonic form, sometimes with great clarity throughout church history. From the time of the early church fathers to the years of the Reformers, there have been key men in the church, pillars as it were, who stood on the foundation of Scripture and upheld the truth of God's sovereign role in salvation. In Pillars of Grace, Dr. Lawson walks readers through the ups and downs of church history, profiling these voices for the truth. The inescapable conclusion is that the doctrines of grace are no innovation, but the consistent witness of some of the greatest men of the church.

    To counteract Christian evangelism, Paul set out to expose the false teachings and corruption in the Torah and the Bible. Instead, this Muslim zealot found the true faith in Christ, who changed him, “He did what the God of Mohammed was unable to do.” Raised to hate Christians, never imagining that they could be right, Mozafar discovered something that shook his whole being. After years of intense research, he had no choice but to overcome his fears and face the truth-whatever the cost. After years of railing against God, Khalil was caught by a love that wouldn’t let him go. He cried out to God to know the truth: Who is this person anticipated by all nations by Jews, Christians and Muslims? Unable to bear the struggle any longer, he gave his heart to the One who filled his inner being with joy. Read the compelling stories of eight Muslims in Egypt - the intellectual capital of Islam — as they persevered until they discovered the truth.

    KING DAVID was a complicated, conflicted man of flesh. But too often he is viewed as an Americanized shepherd boy on a Sunday schoolfelt board or a New Testament saint alongside the Virgin Mary. Not only does this neglect one of the Bible’s most complex stories of sin andredemption; it also bypasses the gritty life lessons inherent in the amazing true story of David. Mark Rutland shreds the felt-board character, breaks down the sculpted marble statue, and unearths the real David of the Bible. Both nobleand wretched, neither a saint nor a monster, at times victorious and other times a failure, David was through it all a man after God’s own heart.
