This is one of those 5 books that every Christian should be forced to read. (I'll have to think of exactly what those other 4 are...I'll get back to you - probably some things with Theology, Philosophy, World Religions, Good Science, and How the Bible came to be the way it is).

A huge confusing issue in modern churches:
Many assume a desperate emotionally drippy deity is trying its hardest to SAVE US poor misunderstood, generally nice, Earthlings from big bad Sin and a sneaky Devilish Horde - aga

Very easy book to read. This book explains the phrase, "Saved from God, by God, and for God." Sproul delivers in simple form not without profound insights. A good little book to give to unbelievers or even young believers wanting to know what salvation is about from a biblical perspective.

"Are you saved?" such a seemingly easy and frequently used question that very few even attempt to define! But Boy does sproul define it!! LOVE the truth that Sproul speaks, as it opens my mind and heart to the true conceptions of the gospel!

I very much enjoy reading RC Sproul. He shares his own personal experience of someone asking if he was saved. He replied Saved from what. The poor guy did'nt have an answer for that. What are we saved from? It starts knowing what a great salvation we have and how can we neglect that. It is a salvation that is by God, from God and for God who all glory belongs to.

One of his quotes in the book struck a chord with me. Page 44...How many times have you spoken with people who have said, "it may or m

This is bare-bones gospel. Sproul, as always, delivers loads of meat for spiritual consumption, but in little over a hundred pages. He clears up many misconceptions and caricatures about what salvation is by answering the questions, "Saved from what?", "Saved by what", and "Saved for what?" A tremendous evangelistic tool, and also a great reminder to Christians who all need to have the gospel preached to them daily, because it is such a counter-intuitive concept. Sproul keeps this book easy to r ...more

for the record I would like to give it three and a half stars...apparently half stars are for the weak!

I really like R.C. Sproul, very clear, very intelligent and he gets to the point of what he's trying to say (this book was about 120 pages, I was able to read it in no time flat) and still pretty profound. I LOVE that he didn't make me wade through the fluff to get to a few good points!
Some of it he got technical, and lets face it hard core theology is not for everyone, but really not bad even

EXCELLENT, a must evagenlistic tool for anyone to give to their loved ones. A simple yet in depth detailed look at the tulip, but not in a "bad" way.

“I'm afraid that in the United States of America today the prevailing doctrine of justification is not justification by faith alone. It is not even justification by good works or by a combination of faith and works. The prevailing notion of justification in our culture today is justification by death. All one has to do to be received into the everlasting arms of God is to die.” 16 likes
