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.

Rick Barth

This is a wonderful treatise, especially for those like myself who lack any extensive knowledge of Christian history. You will admire these men of our past that at times held together the faith delivered once for all the saints. Not only should you gain brief yet insightful pictures of how doctrine has developed and been preserved, but be motivated to stand strong yourself.

Thank the Lord

James Agosto

I thank the Lord for raising men up to preach, teach,and write about the things of the Lord. I'm just begining to read "The Pillars of Grace" and it's awesome. It is enlighting me the understanding of grace and what great men such as youself did in order to educate the masses in the Word of our Lord. I look forward to purchasing the next four books on or related to this subject.

Thankful for this series

Jeremy Bennett

I'm very thankful for Dr. Lawson's extensive work on the first book. This one is sure to be just as good. Thanks Reformation Trust for continuing to publish this series.
