Justification and Regeneration
Leiter attempts to set forth in clear Biblical light the nature and characteristics of justification and regeneration, that God may be glorified and His children brought to know more fully the liberty that is theirs in Christ.
To achieve this end, the author first sets forth man’s greatest problem, sin. Specifically, man has a “bad record” because he has sinned, but also a “bad heart” because he is by nature a sinner and can do nothing but sin.
But the glorious news of the gospel is that Christ has dealt with both our bad record and our bad heart. The bad record has been taken away because Christ died for our sins, and on that basis God has “justified” us, which means He has declared us righteous. As for the bad heart, this is destroyed when God “regenerates” us; God changes our hearts so that we begin to forsake sin and pursue true righteousness.
Many have used this valuable book for small group Bible studies, as an introduction to the topics of justification and regeneration; and unbelievers with an interest in learning about Christ will find the gospel well explained here. For some, it shows the difference between biblical Christianity and the shallow, powerless gospel which most preach today. Others have found new confidence and weapons for putting sin to death in their own lives. In the very least, readers will get a richer and fuller sight of the salvation accomplished for us by Christ.
