"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Justification & Regeneration By Charles Leiter


    Justification & Regeneration By Charles Leiter

    Now available from HeartCry Publishers at Monergism Books!

    For years, the HeartCry staff and our missionaries have greatly benefited from Charles Leiter's teaching on justification and regeneration. Now you can benefit from the same truth in written form.

    What does the Bible mean when it says that Christians have "died to sin"?
    How is it possible for a just God to "justify the ungodly" without becoming "unjust" Himself?
    What is regeneration?
    What is justification?
    Why do all men desperately need to be justified?
    If I have died to sin, why am I still affected by it?
    As a Christian, am I the "new man" or the "old man"--or both?
    What does the Bible mean when it says that Christians have "died to the law"?
    Are Christians still slaves to sin?

    The answers to these and many other questions become clear once we gain a biblical understanding of justification and regeneration. These two great miracles lie at the very heart of the gospel, yet even among genuine Christians they are surrounded by confusion and ignorance. This book 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.

    From the Foreword written by Paul Washer

    "There seems to be a great abyss separating the biblical theologian and the Christian in the pew. While the theologian is able to climb the Everest of God’s truth and be transformed by the vision, he often communicates the vision in a language that is beyond us. Thus, we are left at the mercy of popular Christian literature that is often nothing more than quaint stories, pragmatism, and baptized psychology.

    The Church in contemporary America does not need more strategies, steps, or keys to the Christian life. The Church needs truth, and more specifically, the great foundational truths of historical Christianity. In this work, Pastor Charles Leiter has done a great service to the Church in that he has taken two of the greatest doctrines of Scripture and two of the greatest miracles in the Christian life and explained them in simple language without loss of content. As I read through the manuscript of this book I was amazed at its simplicity and scope…Of particular interest to me was the setting forth of a proper view of regeneration…Pastor Leiter demonstrates that regeneration is the supernatural work of God whereby the sinner’s dead, depraved heart of stone is replaced with a new heart that is both willing and able to respond to God in love and obedience…I have read this book many times before its going to press. I have greatly benefited from its teaching, and heartily recommend its contents. May the Spirit of God illuminate your heart and mind that you may not only understand the Scriptures explained herein, but that they might become a reality in your life."
