Nothing stimulates Christian service more than humble assurance of God's saving grace. Many of us are immobilized by lingering doubts about our salvation or, worse, by a false security.
Is assurance of salvation reserved for the super-spiritual? Is it a sure sign of presumption? What are the benefits of assurance, and the dangers of an unsure faith? Separating truth from error, and viewing assurance in relation to its larger family of biblical doctrines, the contributors to this volume demonstrate its significance for grateful, productive Christian living.

"Assurance of God's gracious, saving, fatherly love to us in Christ is the hallmark of the Protestant Reformation's understanding of salvation. This assurance is vital to Christian life and witness. Unfortunately, too many saints lack assurance, and today there are even Reformed and evangelical preachers who are undermining it by erroneous teaching. Thankfully, a band of faithful brothers has given us this book to clear the fog, present the truth, protect us from wrong-headedness, and help us on our way. True, evangelical assurance enlarges our hearts with peace and joy, fills us with love and thankfulness to God, and strengthens and motivates us to glad, gospel obedience. Read this book prayerfully, with faith in God's Word, and be encouraged!" --Ligon Duncan, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
"The key to fruitfulness . . . is to have a life that is founded solidly on the assurance of one's salvation in Christ. The unsure Christian is the Christian who lacks stability in his or her faith. The unsure Christian is tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine. The unsure Christian is easy prey for the assault of Satan, who does everything in his malevolent power to undermine the Christian's confidence of salvation in Christ. A Christian who lacks such confidence can easily become trapped in insecurity and may lack the boldness to venture out into the domain of a fallen world, armed with the whole armor of God. . . . It is my prayer that those who read this volume will have those vacillating doubts that weaken their profession removed once and for all, so that they may be fully equipped to be fruit bearers in the vineyard of Christ." --R. C. Sproul, from the foreword
