Few questions are as vexing for professing Christians as the question of assurance of salvation. This question is complicated by the presence in the Bible of both glorious promises of final salvation to all who presently trust Christ and terrifying warnings to professing believers threatening them with terrible punishment if they fall away.

How do we reconcile such things without muting one side or the other. Schreiner and Caneday set out to address these crucial issues while letting all the verses have their say. The discussion of the already/not yet dimensions of salvation in Chapter 2 is worth the price of the book.

This is not an easy read, but the heavy slog will be worth it.
