A Historical, Theological and Practical Study
Of the Doctrines of Grace in Baptist Life

by Tom Nettles

Revised and Expanded 20th Anniversary Edition

Includes 2 new chapters in Part 1: Historical Evidence
Art work by Robert Nettles

“This is simply the best book there is on the subject at hand. Dr. Nettles is a superb historian and he traces with careful attention to the sources the history of the doctrines of grace within the Baptist heritage. An important resource for reclaiming the past in the service of a future shaped by the great tradition of Bunyan, Keach, Fuller, Carey, Spurgeon, Boyce and Carroll.”

Dr. Timothy George Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, AL

“Tom Nettles’ book By His Grace and For His Glory is a landmark study. Bringing together the disciplines of the school, the concerns of the preacher and the heart of a Christian, Nettles effectively reminds Baptists of our own day what so many before us believed to be the gospel.”

Dr. Mark Dever Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

Abstract of Systematic Theology

by James P. Boyce

A concise systematic theology by the principle founder of the first Southern Baptist seminary. Includes a new Introduction and Scripture Index. Also includes retypeset: Intro to the 1977 Introduction, “A Brief Catechism of Bible Doctrine” and Abstract of Principles.

The doctrinal stream in which Boyce’s views are found can rightly be called Calvinistic or Reformed. He, like most early Southern Baptist leaders, was clearly convinced of the doctrines of sovereign grace. John Broadus, Boyce’s friend and colleague, made this observation about what he called “that exalted system of Pauline truth” expounded in Boyce’s Abstract:

The people who sneer at what is called Calvinism, might as well sneer at Mont Blanc. We are not bound in the least to defend all of Calvin’s opinions or actions, but I do not see how any one who really understands the Greek of the Apostle Paul or the Latin of Calvin or Turretin can fail to see that these latter did but interpret and formulate substantially what the former teaches.
May the Lord use this book from the pen of one of the greatest Southern Baptists ever to live to promote reformation and revival throughout churches everywhere.
