Publisher's Description

 "If there were a Guinness Book of World Records entry for ’amount of times having prayed the sinner’s prayer,’ I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender," says pastor and author J. D. Greear. He struggled for many years to gain an assurance of salvation and eventually learned he was not alone. "Lack of assurance" is epidemic among evangelical Christians.

In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, J. D. shows that faulty ways of present- ing the gospel are a leading source of the confusion. Our presentations may not be heretical, but they are sometimes misleading. The idea of "asking Jesus into your heart" or "giving your life to Jesus" often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality.

Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance, showing that salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives. He also answers the tough questions about assurance: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation?

Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear never loses his pastoral sensitivity or a communication technique that makes this message teachable to a wide audience from teens to adults.

    I am so glad I got the chance to read this book. It was a simple, straightforward book targeted at people just like me who grew up in the church and got the idea that maybe you needed to keep asking Jesus into your heart to be sure that you are saved. And I suppose that this would help anyone struggling with the issue of whether he/she is truly a Christian.

    I probably heard an "altar call" message practically every Sunday that I was growing up. I made the decision to "walk the aisle" and "ask Jesus into my heart" when i was about six or seven. I knew that I understood what I was doing, and there was a genuine change within me. However, as per normal, I heard that "altar call" message again, and I began to doubt my salvation. I don't remember how many times I "prayed the prayer" just to be sure that I was going to heaven.

    This book addresses these and other topics such as losing one's salvation, "once saved always saved," and more. The book is easy to understand, i.e., it is written in English rather than "church speak." Although these are things that I long ago understood, so it was more of a review for me. But it is nice to read a book like this with solid theology and well-organized thoughts. I would recommend this to anyone who may be struggling with his/her salvation. The author puts forth a Biblical solution to your worries and concerns.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    Examines the subject of assurance of salvation from Scripture and his own personal experiences. The author handles some tricky passages as well as extends grace in those areas that are not perfectly clear from Scripture. Very succinct and a very easy read. Recommend to any one especially those who struggle with assurance.

    Good book! He spends a lot of time talking about repentance and faith (believing) and how they're two sides of the same coin. He also talks about the transformation that occurs when a person is genuinely saved. I wish he would have addressed the carnal believers in the Corinthian Church and given his thoughts regarding whether he thought they were saved or not! That would make a good subject for the author's next book!

    This book comes HIGHLY recommended by me - someone who first accepted Jesus into my life at 15, but have had doubts about whether I had done that or not ever since. I also have asked Him into my heart again and again. This has helped me remember to REST in the completed work of Jesus. My only regret is that I didn't purchase the hard copy book because it was hard on my iPad going back and forth from the footnotes.
