Description

Christian Freedom provides an accessible entry into Samuel Bolton's original work, The True Bounds of Christian Freedom, first published in 1645. This book is not simply an academic discussion of the issues; Samuel Bolton constantly reminds his readers of the gospel, and the great transformation that has happened to a person who has trusted in Jesus Christ. Bolton shows us clearly that real Christian obedience comes from a changed heart, and is motivated by love for God. He deals with the practical question of what happens when Christians fall into sin, and encourages us to rely on what Christ has done for us, rather than on our performance.

Reviews

This modernization of an important work by the seventeenth-century Puritan Samuel Bolton addresses certain key questions of the Christian life and answers them in the solidly Biblical fashion we have come to expect of a Puritan author. Especially helpful is the way that he outlines the nature of true Christian freedom: what we have been delivered from and how God expects us to use our freedom. And what is most needed at the present day: he shows us that liberty and obedience are not polar opposites but two sides of the Christian coin.
