Justification and the imputation of Christ’s righteousness for the sinner is the basis of all religion and the great article of the faith and hope of the Church. Rawlin explains this fundamental gospel truth in three main heads. 1. He shows particularly what that righteousness is which is to be obtained in the Lord Jesus Christ, and which the church is represented as seeking in him. 2. He inquires how we come to have an interest in this righteousness; how this righteousness, which is originally and subjectively without us, comes to be made ours for our actual and personal justification. And, 3. He concludes with a practical application of these very important points.
In puritan style, Rawlin makes this doctrine simple to understand though he covers it in deep theological thought, an abundance of biblical evidence, and gracious practical application.
