For Us and for Our Salvation

For Us and for Our Salvation: The Doctrine of Christ in the Early Church by Stephen J. Nichols

Read the Introduction & Chapter 1.
Endorsements: “In a world where the biblical depiction of Christ is often distorted or denied, this book serves as a tremendous defense of orthodox Christian belief. But its value is more than just apologetic. Its Christ-centered focus makes For Us and for Our Salvation a recommended read for anyone who wants a clear picture of the Savior.” - John F. MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

“With clarity and brevity, Stephen Nichols presents the intriguing development of the doctrine of Christ over the early centuries of the church. His account of the key councils and theological proposals is written in a very simple and readable style, and the reader is made aware of how much was at stake ‘for us and for our salvation’ in these very crucial debates.” - Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, Senior Associate Dean, School of Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“By interweaving original sources and explanatory chapters, Nichols has given us a genre of historical theology that is both informative and interesting.” - Millard Erickson, Distinguished Professor of Theology, Western Seminary, Portland

  1. Though the book certainly has some merit, the historical errors in the book outweigh the positives; as such, I cannot recommend it. For my partial review of the book, see:
