Series: Counterpoints: Bible and Theology
Christians generally recognize the need to live a holy, or sanctified, life. But they differ on what sanctification is and how it is achieved. Five Views on Sanctification brings together in one easy-to-understand volume five major Protestant views on sanctification. Writing from a solid evangelical stance, each author describes and defends his own understanding of the doctrine, and responds as well to the views of the other authors. This book addresses such practical questions as: How does one achieve sanctification in this life? How much success in sanctification is possible? Is a crisis experience following ones conversion normalor necessary? If so, what kind of experience, and how is it verified? 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.

Jeff Kanney5 Stars Out Of 5February 6, 2002Jeff KanneyA well rounded reading upon different views of sanctification. Melvin Dieter came about very thorough and gave an incredible summarization on a theology through the eyes of John Wesley and early Methodism. A great deal of history is to be learned upon the reading of this particular book. As well as a complete overview of differing denominational outlooks. This book will be a great addition to the library of those with a thirst for the history of the church as well as a hunger for the early movements that seem to shape our present Christian position.
