Awesome study of salvation
April 7, 2012
Couldn't put it down once I started reading it. This is my favorite book on soteriology. Kinda tough sledding, but in my opinion, Hoekema makes difficult topics pretty easy to understand, especially compared to other theologians/teachers of his caliber. You will profit from reading this.
This book is a valuable resource for understanding Reformed Soteriology - the doctrines of Sovereign Grace are explained thoroughly - I especially was ministered to on the chapter of Union with Christ - My only contention is with Hoekema's interpretation of 2 Peter 3:9, Matt. 23:37, 2 Corinth. 5:20 and Ezekiel 3:11 (pgs. 75-79) which he does not appropriate the contexts of each of these passages - believing that we should refuse rationalistic positions and "_not lock God up in the prison of human logic" - Karl Barth is quoted in reference to Justification - what he states is not neo-orthodox in nature but may cause those who understand Barth to read closely - Though there is a variety of positions held in Calvinism in regards to Limited Atonement - Hoekema's position as what I determined from the book is that the Atonement is â€˜efficient only for' the elect not a â€˜sufficient for all' but only effectual for' the elect position.
