GHC Review 32: Faith and Saving Faith

ghc review 32; faith and saving faith

Faith and Saving Faith, by Gordon H. Clark, Jefferson, MD: The Trinity Foundation, 1983, 132 pp.

This is one of the most important of Gordon Clark’s books. He provides definitions for key terms and takes away the ambiguity around the discussions of what faith is and what kind of faith is necessary for salvation. It is volumes like this that make it frustrating to read less precise authors, which frankly is most other authors. In Faith and Saving Faith Clark improves over both the traditional Reformed view and the Sandemanian view.

Two articles I’ve written relative to this book should suffice for a review:

Gordon Clark’s View of Faith

Sandemanian Pandemonium

Faith and Saving Faith was later included in What is Saving Faith?
