Martin Luther’s rediscovery of the doctrine of justification by faith alone was prompted by his need to be found righteous in the sight of God. His “evangelical breakthrough” forced him to evaluate his standing before God as well as confront moral and theological corruption in the church. Dr. MacArthur explains why the doctrine of justification by faith alone is central to the message of the gospel now and in the future. It considers what challenges to this central element of the gospel Christians who desire to see a new reformation may face.
