Doctrine of the Saints? Perseverance Explained and Confirmed

John Owen

Written to answer Redemption Redeemed by the Arminian, John Goodwin, this book is a refutation of Goodwin's views. Owen believes the more Calvinist view of perseverance of the saints, that once an individual is saved, he or she will always be saved -- that is, cannot regress back into unbelief. Some readers find Owen's arguing with Goodwin distracting -- in the words of Andrew Thompson, the book would "be almost as complete were every part of it that refers Goodwin expunged, and undeniably forms the most masterly vindication of the perseverance of the saints in the English tongue." But the work is a proficient explanation and argument for perseverance of the saints, and readers interested in the issue would do well to read Goodwin's Redemption Redeemed as well. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer
