Product Description

In this book, the first in the New Studies in Biblical Theology series, Dr. David Peterson challenges the common assumption that the New Testament views sanctification as primarily a process. He argues that its emphasis falls upon sanctification as a definitive event, "God's way of taking possession of us in Christ, setting us apart to belong to him and to fulfil his purpose for us." Simply to identify sanctification with growth in holiness, he contends, obscures the emphasis and balance of New Testament teaching and creates unrealistic expectations. Throughout Dr Peterson builds his case on the careful exegesis of relevant passages, with a keen eye for the pastoral implications of his findings.

Author Bio

David Peterson was senior research fellow and lecturer in New Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney, where he still teaches part time. He served as principal of Oak Hill College, London, from 1996 to 2007. His books include Engaging with God, Possessed by God (both IVP) and Hebrews and Perfection (Cambridge University Press).

Editorial Reviews

"Peterson's treatment is far from hackneyed or trivial. His aim is to show that much of the New Testament treatment of sanctification stresses what used to be called 'positional sanctification' or the like--and that much godly living, Christian assurance, stable faith and Christian maturity stem from a firm grasp of what the Bible says in this regard."
