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.
Anyone interested in refining their understanding of this doctrine should read it.
Each of the authors present clear arguments in favor of their particular view, as well as sound refutations of those of the other authors.
Some readers might feel the responses suffer from this restriction, but not this one.
It is good to have them side by side for the purpose of studying and comparing them.Published 16 days ago by Emilio Grande
