The Latin word sola means „alone” or „only.”
The Five Solas are five Latin phrases (or slogans) that emerged during the Protestant Reformation and that summarize the Reformers’ basic theological convictions on what they believed to be the essentials of the Christian life and practice.
The Five Solas are:
Justified means that God declares you to be just in His sight by imputing to you the righteousness of Jesus.
And He does that by faith alone: “Since we have been justified by faith.”
Not by works.
Not by tradition.
Not by baptism.
Not by church membership.
Not by piety.
Not by parentage.
But by faith alone.
When we believe in Jesus as the Savior and the Lord and the supreme Treasure of our lives, we are united to Him and His righteousness is counted by God as ours.
We are justified by faith.

In 25 Books Every Christian Should Read, Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Phyllis Tickle, Chris Webb, and a diverse editorial board of authors and speakers have identified the most helpful and historic books for Christian discipleship and created a resource that helps us make the most of them.
With sizable excerpts from each book (similar to Renovaré’s much used Devotional Classics), 25 Books is designed to help individual readers and small groups get a taste of and work through the most important books for formation in Christlikeness.
