"Redemption is a beautiful and profound mystery, the fruit of true, authentic, and unmerited friendship with Jesus Christ. In The Drama of Salvation, Jimmy Akin explains Scripture and Catholic doctrine to reveal the divine love at the heart of our salvation. This book will be meaningful to anyone who desires to serve God in this life, and to be happy in heaven with him for eternity." -- The Most Reverend James Conley "Bishop of Lincoln Nebraska"
"The most important truths anyone could hope to know are those that pertain to what must we do to be saved. Jimmy Akin has written a fine book that carefully and clearly explores this topic using biblical, Patristic, and magisterial material. The Drama of Salvation is a very useful resource for those who wish to embrace the Church's call to evangelization. " -- Ralph Martin "President, Renewal Ministries"
"In his usual clear and precise style, Jimmy Akin wrestles with the topic of justification before God. Using Scripture and Sacred Tradition, Akin explains salvation for the scholar and the novice alike, distilling down all the perspectives to an understandable and clear-cut conclusion. This book should be in the hands of every person concerned with -- Steve Ray "Author, Crossing the Tiber: Evangelical Protestants Discover the Historical Church"
About the Author
Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. At age 20 he experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, Jimmy started an intensive study of the Bible, but the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, "A Triumph and a Tragedy," is published in the book Surprised By Truth. Akin is a Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a member on the Catholic Answers Speakers Bureau, a weekly guest on the global radio program, Catholic Answers Live, a contributing editor for Catholic Answers Magazine, and the author of numerous publications, including the books Mass Confusion, The Salvation Controversy, The Fathers Know Best, Mass Revision, and newly released The Drama of Salvation.

His approach to these topics is methodical and logical and he slowly but surely sets the stage and lures you into the Catholic perspective and explains why the Catholic perspective is the correct teaching on these often misinterpreted doctrines and he does this in a very respectful manner to those who oppose the Catholic teaching. In fact, he explains the Protestant doctrines better than I could have when I was a Protestant. Mr. Akin gives plenty of food for thought and what impressed me the most is that he uses the Bible more than any other source as his authority for his understanding and perspective. Yes he still uses the Catechism and will quote the early Church fathers but does so without “beating them to death”.
He begins his book by setting the stage with matters such as salvation as a past, present and future and ongoing process. He points out how we ourselves play a vital role in others salvation. He continues on further into his work and I can honestly say this book is hard to put down. It is truly the best apologetic work on the principles of Salvation I have ever read and am so glad to have copy of it. I will use the typical clichés and tell you that this book is a must have and a must read. After the first few chapters you will begin to understand why Jimmy Akin is one of the most influential apologist of our time and why he is such a popular guest on Catholic answers. As an aspiring apologist, I thought I had a good handle on this subject. If you are like me, then you will find that this book will take you even further into depths and understandings you never considered before. If you are a Protestant, then get yourself a copy of this book and I guarantee it will give you answers to those gnawing questions I know you have about certain Bible passages that either don't add up for you in relation to what your church teaches or you have chosen to ignore. All I can say is "Well done Mr. Akin"!
