Booktober 6th: “The Whole Christ” by Sinclair Ferguson

[This is Day 6 of #Booktober! Stay tuned for more recommendations!]

What It Is: A stirring, devotional examination of the issues surrounding “Marrow Controversy” from 18th century church history, and why those issues still matter today.

Why You Should Read It: Ferguson writes about theology in a way that is devotional, challenging, and encouraging. He walks the reader through the various issues surrounding the Marrow Controversy, as a springboard for a discussion of the key theological ideas involved: the relationship between grace and works, assurance of salvation, and the believer’s union with Christ. Rather than being dry and academic, the book stirs the heart and affections for Jesus. It is still one of my favorite books so far this year.
