Justification by Christ Alone

Samuel Richardson, 1602-1658, was a leader among the Early Particular Baptists. From his writings we can easily observe that Richardson was a Firm Advocate for the Cause of Religious Liberty; a Loyal Supporter of the Government of Oliver Cromwell, and the Parliamentary Cause; and above all an Exalter of Christ Alone & fervent Setter Forth of Christ’s Glory & Preeminence in Salvation. He most definitely was a formative leader of the early English Particular Baptists, and one of the twelve signers of the 1644; and slightly revised 1646 London Confession of Faith.

This work was printed in 1647, and is sub-titled, “a Fountain of Life and Comfort, declaring that the whole work of man’s salvation was accomplished by Jesus Christ upon the cross, in that He took away and healed all His, from all sins, and presented them to God holy without fault in His sight. And the Objections against this are answered, for the Consolation of such as believe, that they may not ascribe that which is proper to Christ’s Priestly Office, to their believing. This edition also includes a few of Richardson’s additional writings such as “a Defense of Tobias Crisp,” & a short Treatise on the Resurrection & Intercession of Christ in Relation to Justification &c. Also; sections of the 'Justification' book have been meticulously compared with Richardson’s own later corrections from his 'Consolations' {1649} book, and carefully revised.
