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 one's conversion normal---or necessary? If so, what kind of experience, and how is it verified? The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.

What stands out immediately on this topic is how much agreement there is. There is minimal disagreement and it primarily stems from the differences in soteriology and pneumatology that one would expect between Reformed, Wesleyan, and Pentecostal theologians.
Although I expected a very tedious, detailed theological argument, each of the presentations were quite clear. Not every position is defended with equal skill, but each author explains his position well. However, I must admit that my understanding of the distinctions was helped more by the responses at the end of the chapters than the chapters themselves.
As a side note, it is interesting to observe how the approach of each author tends to reflect the strengths/weaknesses of their particular theological disposition.
Good book from an excellent series. Anyone interested in refining their understanding of this doctrine should read it.
