I really enjoyed this book. I believe the title will probably throw a lot of people but I totally understand where he is coming from.
Many of us who grew up in church remember getting saved every week. Even if we knew we were saved, we just wanted to be sure.That experience is what this book is all about.
What is assurance of salvation?How can we have it?What is repentance?
These and many other questions are answered in this small but informative book.
Greear starts the book showing us what salvation is and how Jesus was a substitute for our sin. If we do not start here, the rest is useless. Salvation is from God. He accomplished it all. We can not add anything to the cross. We are to rest in what Christ accomplished.
From there he spends the rest of the book explaining what repentance is and is not. Repentance is a changing of direction. Belief and repentance go hand in hand. We can not truly have one without the other.
He then moves to show that just because God calls us to good works does not mean we can be perfect in this life. We are to strive to be as godly as we can.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
