From the Back Cover
Christians generally recognize the need to live a holy, or sanctified, life. But they differ on what sanctification is and how it is achieved.
Five Views on Sanctification brings together in one easy-to-understand volume five major Protestant views on sanctification. Writing from a solid evangelical stance, each author describes and defends his own understanding of the doctrine, and responds as well to the views of the other authors.
This book addresses such practical questions as: How does one achieve sanctification in this life? How much success in sanctification is possible? Is a crisis experience following ones conversion normalor necessary? If so, what kind of experience, and how is it verified?
The interactive and fair-minded nature of the Counterpoints format allows the reader to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed, personal conclusions.
