Tom Nettles deserves to be commended for his faithfulness to the gospel and his commitment to excellence in. .The book has three major sections which mirror the structure of Nettles’ own major work, By His Grace and for His Glory.

Tom Nettles deserves to be commended for his faithfulness to the gospel and his commitment to excellence in academic and pastoral ministry. The first section focuses on matters related to Baptist historiography and theological controversies that Nettles has helped to clarify over the course of his ministry. The second section is theological, focusing on the Reformational emphases of the doctrines of grace and justification by faith alone. The final section focuses on practical matters of ecclesiology, ministry, and Baptist identity. The Question of Baptist Identity.

Book by Thomas J. Nettles. The best summary I can give of this section is that Nettles knows his history and he has blessed the church with a wonderful look at baptist history and the impact of the doctrines of grace. The second section is the theological section. Here, Nettles examines the doctrines of grace as a theological system. Nettles begins each chapter in this section with a brief definition of the doctrine being discussed (Total Depravity and Effectual Grace are combined into one chapter).

This is where Tom Nettles’ book has been a great gift to me-and many other pastors like me. In By His Grace and for . In By His Grace and for His Glory, Nettles, widely regarded as one of the foremost Baptist historians in America, examines prominent Baptist theologians, pastors, and missionaries throughout the past and how they maintained a rich Calvinistic theology while remaining strongly evangelical in their preaching and desire to reach the nations

in the most influential and enduring arenas of Baptist denominational life until the end of the second decade of the twentieth century. This is accomplished and done so very convincingly

The book contains a history of the doctrines of grace against the backdrop of the early Baptist preachers. Dr. Nettles also includes a wonderful primer on soteriology at the end of the book

The book contains a history of the doctrines of grace against the backdrop of the early Baptist preachers. Nettles also includes a wonderful primer on soteriology at the end of the book. A great resource for Baptists who want to know their history and who are looking for an introduction to the doctrines of grace.

Only recently announced, this book seeks to honor Nettles for his contributions to the field of Baptist history in general and to the Southern Baptist Convention in particular. But this volume is also a helpful work in its own right. This book, like many others in its genre, begins with a biographical sketch of the author that focuses on the recipient’s teaching career and academic contributions

By His Grace and for His Glory: A Historical, Theological and Practical Study of the Doctrines of Grace in Baptist Life by Tom Nettles is a thorough (if you didn't get that from the title) look at the impact that the Doctrines of Grace have and should have on Baptist life. Tom Nettles is a world class scholar who brings a lifetime of study of history and doctrine to this book and the result is a product that will bless all who read it. As the subtitle states, this book is divided into three sections: Historical, Theological and Practical and I want to briefly comment on each section.

The historical section begins with the division of General and Particular Baptist (which arose out of the Jacob, Lathrop, Jessey Separatist church) in England. Tom Nettles has written a 3 volume work on baptist history and this section provides a condensed look at many of these important figures. Nettles provides a historical walk which includes brief biographical sketches of over 30 key figures. What is helpful about this approach, as opposed to reading individual biographies, is that the reader is able to trace key thoughts and ideas in baptist history as they are presented and fought for. Many of these men faced opposition that was unique to their time period and moving chronologically helps the reader to better understand how thoughts and ideas developed. Obviously in such limited space many details are going to be left out, but this approach gives the reader a great overview of baptist history. Many of the men in this section are Southern Baptist. As someone who is not a part of the SBC I found this section a blessing as I was not familiar with some of these men. The best summary I can give of this section is that Nettles knows his history and he has blessed the church with a wonderful look at baptist history and the impact of the doctrines of grace.

The second section is the theological section. Here, Nettles examines the doctrines of grace as a theological system. Nettles begins each chapter in this section with a brief definition of the doctrine being discussed (Total Depravity and Effectual Calling/Irresistible Grace are combined into one chapter). He also addresses some of the difficulties and arguments against the doctrine that are raised by others. This section is brief (just over 80 pages) but provides a helpful look at these doctrines as well as providing many quotes from Baptist history to show how these doctrines shaped Baptist life.

The third section focuses on the practical, specifically how these doctrines provide assurance, liberty of conscience and the effect on world missions and bold evangelism. As someone who is currently looking into missions work, this last section was a great blessing to me. Anyone who holds to the doctrines of grace is aware of the many caricatures and false claims that exist. Probably the most known one is that Calvinism kills missions. I cannot state enough how Nettles dismantles this false claim. These doctrines, rightly understood, are what fuels missions. I know that personally, if I did not believe that God has chosen His people before the foundation of the world and that He WILL draw them to himself I would never entertain the idea of going to the mission field. Thankfully God is Sovereign in both the saving of sinners and over the means in which they get saved (through the foolishness of preaching). I am thankful for this book as it provides a thorough look at various areas of Baptist life and how the Doctrines of Grace relate to them all.

I received a copy of this book from Founders Press in exchange for an honest review.

Mr. Nettles doesn't chase a great deal of theological debate to defend the Doctrines of Grace. He simply presents the history of those who have defended it through the centuries.

The book is well organized and well written and anyone who completes its 428 pages will be better off for it.

If it doesn't convince you that the "Doctrines of Grace" are nothing more than the faith once delivered to the saints, you will at least come away with a greater view of the Sovereignty of our God.

I thought that I had a good understanding of the Doctrines of Grace until I read Prof. Nettles book. Chapter 12 - Christ Died for Our Sins, According to the Scriptures, is the most awe inspiring argument for Particular Redemption that I have read by a modern theologian. I once thought I was a "fish out of water", being a Calvinistic Southern Baptist. But, now I realize the depth of the soil from which I have grown. I wish modern Southern Baptists were as faithful to Sola Scriptura as the Founders of the Southern Baptist Convention were.

The book contains a history of the doctrines of grace against the backdrop of the early Baptist preachers. Dr. Nettles also includes a wonderful primer on soteriology at the end of the book. A great resource for Baptists who want to know their history and who are looking for an introduction to the doctrines of grace.
