"Seeing the biblical warnings as prospective, and thus designed to bring about a faith that perseveres to the end, Caneday and Schreiner have given the church a long-needed solution to the polarization of categories that has arisen out of our systematic theologies. This well-crafted and irenic book is one I highly recommend. All serious debates over these texts must now reckon with this carefully reasoned work."
"This timely book on a perennial theological problem balances exegetical rigor with an irenic tone. The result is an attractive argument for reading all of the debated passages sympathetically, and for understanding their relationship in light of the eschatological tension that pervades the New Testament."
"Caneday and Schreiner tackle a vital topic and succeed in mounting a convincing case. They engage the four major views on assurance and set forth a fifth. They exegete the full range of relevant biblical passages. They encourage readers with their conclusions, which offer both challenge and--by God's grace--assurance. By refusing to give simplistic answers to complex questions, they have contributed richly to practical Christian living as well as to biblical-theological discussion. This should give new life to a discussion that had become polarized along predictable lines."
jannloBlandon, PAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5May 14, 2011jannloBlandon, PAAge: Over 65Gender: maleThe author examines four views on the warnings and assurance and offers another view that uses and explains the Greek first-class conditional if clause. He examines five verses in Hebrews corcerning God's warnings and admonitions and how they fit with Paul's already but not yet view of the eschatological goal of Christians. The author offer another view which uses the warnings and admonitions to put them in their true prespective and to show how God uses these warnings and admonitions to enrich and enlarge our faith and to build our confidence in God's promises to save and presere his people to the end.
David Leary4 Stars Out Of 5June 2, 2006David LearyGood thourough treatment of the subject. I hold to the test of genuiness theory and while the book disagreed with that position, I came away even more solidified in that view. I really do believe your theory teaches a works righteousness. You say, that Justification doesn't do enough, we have to do works (be obedient) to justify ourselves before God (pg. 293) in order to obtain the salvation that is not entirely ours yet. But you say, the works are all done by the grace of God so that doesn't make them works any more. Whatever. I'll stick with Calvin, Luther, Owen, Sproul and MacArthur and the Protestant Reformation view of the Bible texts rather than adopt your unique positions. Faith = Salvation + works. NOT Faith + works = salvation. To be fair your equation would read: faith = partial salvation + works = the rest of salvation.
P. Chase Sears5 Stars Out Of 5January 2, 2006P. Chase SearsThe Authors are Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner, professor of New Testament at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Ardel B. Caneday, associate professor of Bible at Northwestern College. They have set out to write this book in manner that the author of individual chapters cannot be discerned (9). As noted in the subtitle of this book, the authors objective is to offer a biblical theology of perseverance and assurance. The first chapter of the book explores four of the major views on warnings and admonition in Scripture.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm Professor of Biblical Studies at Northwestern College, Saint Paul, Minnesota.
What was your motivation behind this project? My friend, Tom Schreiner, and I collaborated in writing our book to be a pastoral encouragement to Christians, that they might persevere in faithfulness to Jesus Christ. We hope that our book will also be instructive to pastors and teachers, that they may grasp more fully, accurately, and sufficiently the gospel's call to persevere in faithfulness to Christ Jesus, so that they may faithfully instruct others from Scripture.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Our concern is pastoral. Thus, our desire is that all who read our book will not only become better instructed from Scripture concerning the necessity of perseverance but also that all will persevere in loyalty to Christ and find the fullness of assurance the gospel holds out to us who believe.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My wife, Lois, has been a great source of encouragement to me throughout our marriage. Together, we have poured our lives into our two sons who encourage our hearts with their perseverance in loyalty to Jesus Christ. Michael Card's lyrics give musical expression to so many of my Christian beliefs. Thanks, Michael Card, for providing musical and lyrical inspiration as I wrote my portions of "The Race Set Before Us." May the Lord use our book to encourage many to hold fast to the gospel of Jesus Christ that they might endure the trials and afflictions of this age and attain unto the crown of life and of righteousness in the age to come.
