Publisher's Description

Does the Bible support the concept of "once saved, always saved," or can a person lose his or her salvation? How do the Scriptures portray the complex interplay between grace and free will? These and related questions are explored from different angles in this thought-provoking Counterpoints volume. The contributors each state their case for one of four prominent views on eternal security: classical Calvinist, moderate Calvinist, reformed Arminian, and Wesleyan Arminian. In keeping with the forum approach of the Counterpoints series, each view is first presented by its proponent, then critiqued and defended. This fair and respectful approach allows you to weigh for yourself the strengths and weaknesses of the different doctrinal stances. By furnishing you with scholarly and thoughtful perspectives on the topic of eternal security, this book helps you sift through opposing views to arrive at your own informed conclusions. 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.

    This review was written for Four Views on Eternal Security.
    This book is an interesting introduction to the topic but has some flaws. The first issue I take is that no normal person will understand this book. It was written on a high scholarly level which excludes most people. Second, their was a glaring bias in the book. Horton was so worked up over the doctrine of election, the definition of Calvinism, and the TULIP acronym that he completely neglects the issue of eternal security. Geisler does a good job but his references must be double checked since he has a bad habit of listing verses that have nothing to do with the topic at hand as if they supported his view. Ashby used a mistranslation of the Greek in a key text which supported his view better than what the verse actually says. Harper does not use the Bible a whole lot in his writings but primarily is quoting from John Wesley as if he were the authority on the issue. It will get you introduced to the issue but will certainly not settle the issue for anyone.

    This review was written for Four Views on Eternal Security.
    A wonderful and refreshing look at a doctrine that we have been arguing over for hundreds of years. I enjoyed the balanced introduction by J. Mathew Pinson. I was some what disappointed with the content from Geisler and the severe lack of information from the five point Calvinist approach. Ashby's position however was quite amazing. It was a new look on Arminian theology that is as old as Arminius himself. Reading this book has changed the way I look at Arminius, Wesley, and Calvin. It is amazing how we can twist a persons words after so many years. A very good read, it will make you upset, challenge you, and cause you to rejoice.

    So important to understand these different views. It equips you with 4 different standards of eternal security, and the authors of each are quite wise. The book features an analysis of arguments by each of the writers as well. I personally found that Stephen Ashby produced some of the best material. Norman Geisler is a great theologian of our times, but he is perhaps even left in the shadows of Mr. Ashby's interpretations. We are to remain in the ways of Christ. It is stated in so many Epistles, and that is for a reason. It will upset the Classical Calvinist if you follow my summary. It is rather interesting that this particular school of thought never truly examines the validity of scriptures that incorporate 'remain in the truth'. You will have an excellent opportunity to read a volume's worth of information in this brief book. God will speak to you if you pray for him to provide the answers for you. Any amateur theologian will find this a must read. Theology is such a biased study in the specific different thoughts. This will give you a heads up to the arguments that never seem to cease. May Christ Bless you while reading this fine book!

    There is no such thing as 'moderate' Calvinism. It is a logical as well as biblical fallacy. To quote Milli Vanilli..."it's all or nothing". Good read in our 'theologically' as well as 'gospel' depraved church.

    This review was written for Four Views on Eternal Security.
    The most significant aspect of this work are the sections contributed by Stephen Ashby, who brings fresh contributions to the topic.Most people untrained in traditional theological systems will find the defense of eternal security in the first chapter by the five point Calvinist perplexing, perhaps irrelevant. However, keep reading.Geisler's defense of modified Calvinism is unimaginative.
