Five Views on Sanctification (Counterpoints: Bible and Theology) (Paperback)
Christians generally recognize the need to live a holy, or sanctified, life. But they differ on what sanctification is and how it is achieved.
How does one achieve sanctification in this life? How much success in sanctification is possible? Is a crisis experience following one's conversion normal--or necessary? If so, what kind of experience, and how is it verified?
Five Views on Sanctification--part of the Counterpoints series--brings together in one easy-to-understand volume five major Protestant views on sanctification:
- Wesleyan View - represented by Melvin E. Dieter
- Reformed View - represented by Anthony A. Hoekema
- Pentecostal View - represented by Stanley M. Horton
- Keswick View - represented by J. Robertson McQuilkin
- Augustinian-Dispensationalism View - represented by John F. Walvoord
Writing from a solid evangelical stance, each author describes and defends his own understanding of the doctrine sanctification and then responds to the views of the other authors.
The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.
