For over 30 years, trusted pastor and teacher John MacArthur has delivered practical, Biblical insights for helping Christians grow in their own journey of faith. Now the very best of John MacArthur's Christian living titles have been updated to feature a fresh look and study guides for both personal and group reflection.

Readers will develop a Bible-based theology of salvation and be encouraged to securely rest in their personal relationship with Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Saint That Perseveres July 15 2004
Format:Paperback
This book is not a detailed defense of the doctrine of eternal security and the passages that pertain thereto (like you would find with Pink, Ironside or Strombeck), but rather a study in personal heart-felt assurance. MacArthur moves beyond the objective assurance of doctrinal truth to the subjective assurance of the fruits of the believer. He advocates a balanced approach to the doctrine that understands "the perseverance of the saints" as saints who actually persevere in faithfulness and godliness! As James writes, "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him" (1:12).
MacArthur's critics claim that teachings like those found in Saved Without a Doubt are contrary to scripture and serve only to undermine the pure doctrines of the reformation. Nothing could be further from the truth. MacArthur's understanding of this doctrine serves to deny security to tares and dead branches (Matt. 13:38, John 15:6) while giving full assurance to the one who has truly been chosen of God, come to genuine faith in Christ, and been sealed with the Holy Spirit.
May God raise up more men like John MacArthur who are willing to hold to the plain teaching of scripture even in the face of adversity and slander.

5.0 out of 5 stars Either you'll love it or you'll hate it... April 30 2004
Format:Paperback
I found the book to be very biblical. The Bible does offer salvation free by faith, but MacArthur does a great job of showing that if you ARE saved by faith, then you will see signs of that in your life. MacArthur points you to scripture, not peoples opinion's. After all, I wanted to know what the Bible says, not someone who thinks they are saved but have never had a change in their lives. MacArthur points out that many want to say they are saved, but at the same time hang on to a lifestyle of lawlessness. If you just want to deceive yourself and say that a person can be saved by "faith" alone (read: a faith that does not lead to a new life), then DONT READ THIS BOOK. (Or for that matter, don't read your Bible). But MacArthur does a great service to the genuine gospel by making an iron clad biblical case to show that salvation that is by faith, is not alone. Genuine faith produces fruit, or evidence. And that fruit is what we look for to give us assurance so we CAN have biblical assurance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly Saved With Doubts Dec 15 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Unfortunately, this book does not point people to a biblical basis of assurance of one's salvation. Instead it gives 11 tests, which one is to use to see if one is "really" saved or not. (eg. "Are you sensitive to sin?", "Do you obey God's word?", "Do you love other Christians?") Of course, these are all subjective measures and no one has ever fulfilled these 100% of the time (with the exception of Jesus Christ). Thus, no one can ever be 100% sure of their salvation. MacArthur points individuals to look to one's works to see if one's saved. There can only be 2 possible results. 1) If one is honest with him or herself, looking to one's works is always a faulty foundation and can never assure. Thus, the person is left in despair. 2) If one is not honest, he or she trivializes the sin in their lives. Thus, they develop pride in their self-righteous position versus those who they feel don't measure up. MacArthur should have pointed individuals to the rock solid promises in God's word. This and only this is the biblical basis for assurance. Jesus promised eternal life to all who believe in Him for it. His promises are secure and they will never fail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biblical basis for salvation July 18 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
MacArthur helps people to see that their salvation is based only on the finished work of Jesus Christ: faith alone in Christ alone. It addresses a need in the church today, i.e., when so many are being taught that salvation is based on what you do to please God, instead of being taught (correctly) that salvation is based soley on the imputed righteousness of Christ.
