Ever since the days of the apostles Paul and James, Christians have struggled to define the proper tension between faith and works. Salvation, Paul stresses is "not by works, so that no one can boast" (Ephesians 2:8- 9). But James argues, "Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works" (2:18). In his characteristic compelling style Dr. MacArthur reconciles these two seemingly divergent threads of biblical truth, taking on the difficult questions head on: What is cheap grace? Have some Christians adopted a "no- lordship" theology? What must a person do to be considered righteous by God? Do our works have any affect on our salvation?
