Overview

Bruce Demarest has made plain God’s glorious plan of salvation, his provision for the human dilemma through Christ’s work on the cross, and the application of saving grace to unbelievers. Demarest’s unique approach defines each topic, identifies its most pressing issues, examines the ways in which the doctrine has been understood historically, and interprets the Bible’s revelation. The result is a clear and carefully constructed doctrinal statement that you can defend, live out, and communicate to others.

With America’s confidence in the Bible at an all-time low and the strength of her spiritual convictions waning, it is essential for Christians—especially Christian leaders—to be well-grounded in biblical theology, and to have a clear and comprehensive understanding of the key doctrines of evangelicalism.

In response, professor and award-winning author Bruce Demarest has made plain God’s glorious plan of salvation, his provision for the human dilemma through Christ’s work on the cross, and the application of saving grace to unbelievers. Demarest’s unique approach defines each topic, identifies its most pressing issues, examines the ways in which the doctrine has been understood historically, and interprets the Bible’s revelation. The result is a clear and carefully constructed doctrinal statement that you can defend, live out, and communicate to others.

This singular, comprehensive treatment of one of Christianity’s essential doctrines gives definitive, Bible-based answers about salvation and the cross—and about related theological issues such as grace and regeneration. It’s perfect for clarifying your theology and gaining deep understanding of this foundational theme.

Resource Experts
A very good book about that most distinctive and vital Christian doctrine: salvation in Christ.… I can imagine more than one teacher (myself included) considering the construction of an entire course around this book.… Moreover, Demarest’s competence in several disciplines means the work would stretch even advanced students into that integration of biblical foundations, theology (including theology in its historical dimensions), and personal/ministry application for which we all surely long.

—Bob Robinson, Biblioteca Sacra

A valuable contribution to the evangelical theological community. Lucid and readable, Demarest’s work is an encyclopedic approach to the subject, which results in a good sourcebook on the major options in the hotly contested doctrines of soteriology. Demarest’s treatment of such issues as lordship salvation, the nature of repentance, and various views of sanctification indicate his familiarity with the various options. Although no reader will agree with every theological position Demarest adopts, his explanations of views with which he disagrees seem fair…. It would make an excellent textbook for seminary or graduate courses in soteriology and a helpful addition to any pastor’s library.

—Glenn R. Kreider, Journal of Evangelical Theological Society

    This work is well researched and written. It is a good resource for any theologian's library. I found it helpful even though I do disagree with his conclusion.

    Great resource. Challenging for those who are polemically Reformed.
