Alan Stanley

$37.99

Paperback
The common questions asked when it comes to salvation are Who will be in heaven What characterizes such people What do they believe How did they live But what does Jesus sayIn looking at this complex but important topic Alan Stanley asserts that contrary to what is so often proclaimed from the pulpit there is more to salvation than a simple acceptance. He argues that todays notion of salvation by grace is not the complete message.Stanley delves into this issue with a heart of concern for those who see no necessity in the urgency of their Christian walk. He explores what the early church leaders Augustine Martin Luther John Calvin and John Wesley have to say about the role of works in our daily Christian life. He inspects the Scriptures to see how Jesus describes those who will be in heaven. The reader will also discover that although being saved by grace is not complete salvation; neither is being saved by works. The goal is to be obedient not perfect by attempting to do the things the Lord asks. This is the judge of true salvation.This book will be an important resource for pastors and teachers discussing the crucial issues of salvation as well as the average Christian feeling the need for a deeper Christian walk.

The reader will discover what it really means to be a Christian. The goal is not perfection but a personal relationship - to know and love Christ. The reader will also discover that God's grace is greater than what th
