OUR SOVEREIGN SAVIOR: THE ESSENCE OF THE REFORMED FAITH – Roger Nicole (2002)

a sovereignRoger Nicole is a new name for many people in the church.  But in the academy, he is a well-known name and one of the key defenders of the Reformed faith.

Our Sovereign Savior: The Essence of the Reformed Faith is a collection of articles that explain and defend the primary tenets of the doctrines of grace.  The author explores the doctrine of the Trinity, Calvinism, and specific aspects of salvation – reconciliation, propitiation, justification, and sanctification.

Nicole’s approach is typically gracious and is grounded by careful scholarship.  The book is simple enough for a beginning theology student but should not be neglected by more advanced readers.

On December 11, 2010 Dr. Nicole went to be with his Savior.  He was a gift to the church and will be missed.  But his legacy lives on as a man who was committed to articulating the Reformed faith with faithfulness and precision.

Semper Reformanda!
