RC Sproul. Faith Alone: The Evangelical Doctrine of Justification. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, January 17th 2017. 262 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

Evangelical Christians would say sinners can be saved by placing their faith in Christ apart from their own works yet is this doctrine biblical and also important?  The late Christian theologian and apologist RC Sproul answered these two questions and other related to it in his book Faith Alone: The Evangelical Doctrine of Justification.  I received a copy of this book from Shepherd’s Conference for pastors, and then I saw a blogger friend shared a review of this book which prompted me to dig it up and read it.  I wasn’t disappointed; I was blessed to have read it!  What stood out to me is Sproul’s ability to handle with care what is Rome’s actual position and then accurately respond to its doctrines both biblically and theologically.  It is a good example of scholarship and also handling the opposition well.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Salah’s father?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Salah’s father was Arphaxad

Arpachshad became the father of Shelah; and Shelah became the father of Eber.” (Genesis 10:24)

Arpachshad lived thirty-five years, and became the father of Shelah” (Genesis 11:12)

Salah’s father was Cainan.

the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Heber, the son of Shelah, 36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,” (Luke 3:35-36)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)
