So writes Dr. Steven J. Lawson at the outset of this authoritative survey of the Scriptures. With the skill of an accomplished expositor, Dr. Lawson lets the biblical writers speak for themselves. Each one clearly proclaims the doctrines of grace. The Long Line starts here. From the lawgiver Moses to the apostle John, and from the early church fathers to modern defenders of the faith, there has marched onto the stage of human history a long line of godly men, a triumphant parade of spiritual stalwarts who have upheld the doctrines of grace. In this book, the first in the five-volume Long Line of Godly Men series, Dr. Steven J. Lawson takes readers on a heart-stirring journey through the Scriptures to show that the Bible in its entirety teaches the doctrines of grace.
