The Scriptorium posts a review of That You May Know

19Mar09

“There is only one biblical foundation for a Christian’s assurance of salvation: that God the Son came to be our propitiation and advocate. Only when faith is solidly founded there can a believer go on to apply these rigorous tests: Is my belief correct enough? Do I live a holy life? Do I love other believers? These tests are important and biblical, but what’s even more important is that they don’t usurp the place of the one foundation.”

“That’s the argument of Christopher D. Bass in his new book, That You May Know: Assurance of Salvation in 1 John (Nashville: B&H Academic, 2008). It’s an important topic, obviously central to 1 John. In fact, 1 John has so much to say about assurance that the real interpretive task is to bring all those statements together into a unitary picture. ”
