At the heart of the Gospel, is what Martin Luther once called 'the wonderful exchange.': Christ's gift of His flawless righteousness to all who believe in Him and His receiving the punishment due to all of their sins. And it was this message that lay at the centre of the 18th century revival on both sides of the Atlantic.
George Whitefield took special delight in his proclamation of this amazing message and this sermon is an excellent example of that delight. It is a sermon which not only informs about the past, but also provides a challenge for the present. Our society is a time which Evangelicals are losing their grip on this vital doctrine. They are increasingly forgetful of the fact that the doctrine of imputed righteousness is as Whitefield notes, "that truth by which the church stands or falls."
Here in this booklet is instruction about the heart of the Gospel and a challenge to Evangelicals to hold fast to their Biblical heritage.
