Book Description

31 Dec 1996
A comprehensive, dynamic, and eminently practical presentation of the biblical teaching on salvation. In discussing the facets of the working out of salvation -- the role of the Spirit, union with Christ, the gospel call, regeneration, conversion, repentance, and so on -- Hoekema does away with the classical ordo salutis ("order of salvation") by viewing these facets largely as simultaneous aspects in the process of salvation rather than sequential steps on the way to salvation.

Hoekema brings much light to a dark soul! If you are looking for a book about Christian salvation that is both readable and academically solid look no further. Hoekema writes clearly and with both a clear pastoral perspective and a sharp theological edge. You will walk away from this book with a solid understanding of the doctrines of salvation.
A must read for every Christian!

5.0 out of 5 stars Salvation thoroughly explained 31 Jan 2006
By M. J. Keel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I can't begin to tell you how helpful I found and will continue to find this book. It delves deep into the Bible to explain all the ins and outs of God's saving people from their sins. Hoekema interacts with church history, contemporary theology, popluar teaching across denominations, as well as classical, medieval, and reformation era theologians on the subject of salvation. This book is thorough yet readable. It is not for a new Christian, but if you want to go beyond the basics this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book on Soteriology 19 April 2005
By theologicalresearcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a very good outline of soteriology from the Reformed perspective. Anyone who wants to get a good dose of the doctrine of salvation from a traditional Reformed perspective should read this. Though it gets into technicalities and some Greek it is readable and organized. However, Hoekema's "Dutch Reformed" background lets some of his interpretations be influenced by that background. For example, his interpretation of Romans 7. For students wanting to understand what the Reformed camp teaches regarding salvation this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Introductory Works on Reformed Soteriology 24 Mar 2009
By William Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was an excellent introductory work on Reformed soteriology (doctrine of salvation). Hoekema takes the reader through every important issue on the subject ranging from regeneration and glorification to the ordo salutis and Union with Christ. This reader, though not as consistently Reformed as the author, truly appreciated the generous interaction with other Reformed writers (especially in the Dutch Reformed tradition) and the even-handedness the author maintained throughout this work.

In my experiences with Reformed teaching (simplified down at times to the "Doctrines of Grace") I've learned to expect a rigorous and detailed handling of God's plan in human salvation. This book does not fail to deliver in any of these aspects. Whereas some Reformed theologians seem to emphasize certain areas of Reformed soteriology which at times seem out of balance (such as Berkhof's understanding of our "Union with Christ" to be actualized already prior to regeneration), Hoekema gives a more balanced, and in my opinion, biblical treatment of difficult areas such as the ordo salutis and "Union with Christ." He interacts generously with John Murray, Louis Berkhof (his mentor), Herman Bavinck, and G.C. Berkhouwer in these difficult areas. He sums it up well by saying how important it is that we maintain both firmly, which I would agree fully.

Throughout every important area of our salvation/redemption Hoekema gives detailed biblical support for his classical Reformed views. This reader appreciated how every area was brought into the light of scripture in a detailed and thorough manner. Also, one peripheral area I felt encouraged by was his understanding of regeneration and his refutation of the common misunderstanding that one can be regenerate for a long period of time yet not come to faith for a period of months, maybe even years. I felt his critique of Kuyper and Berkhof in certain places was well warranted and appreciated the willingness of the author to disagree in some of the areas within his own Dutch Reformed tradition (especially in the area of "actualization" in justification and eternal life). Though I wasn't always convinced of his exegesis, I felt extremely encouraged and nourished by his understanding of many biblical truths.

In closing, this book is only an "introductory work" for those who may have already read a handful of books on Reformed soteriology. The book is not overly-technical by any means yet displays a lucid clarity and simplicity that allows any reader to engage with what the author is saying. I highly recommend this book for pastors, laymen, and students of the bible. This is a high-quality book from a consistently Reformed perspective concerning God's salvation and man's redemption. An excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Rich Introduction to the Faith 19 Feb 2014
By J. G. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I purchased this book some 20 odd years ago, and read it fairly much immediately. This is an easily grasped and accessible, but reasonably in depth, examination of Christianity and the Reformed Faith. Perhaps not all will agree with Mr. Hoekema's perspectives, but I believe the differences are rather slight from the Reformers vision, after all. So then, a fine 'second look' at soteriology, yet what this superb book really has going for it is its readability and Pastoral care. A welcoming and rewarding presentation of the Faith!
