Machen's classic defense of orthodox Christianity established the importance of scriptural doctrine and contrasts the teachings of liberalism and orthodoxy on God and man, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and the church. Though originally published nearly seventy years ago, the book maintains its relevance today. It was named one of the top 100 books of the millennium by World magazine and one of the top 100 books of the century by Christianity Today.

J. Gresham Machen pulled no punches in excoriating the plague of liberalism that had invaded the church in the early 20th century. His concerns of a hundred years ago echo strongly now. Excellent read for anyone who loves the truth of scriptures.
