Nothing stimulates Christian service more than the 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. Contributors include:
—Burk Parsons: Our Sure Foundation
—Philip Graham Ryken: Assured from Beginning to End
—R. Albert Mohler Jr.: Guarded through Faith
—Richard D. Phillips: Assured in Christ
—Sinclair B. Ferguson: Assurance Justified
—Joel R. Beeke: The Fullness of Grace
—John MacArthur: The Glory of True Repentance
—Keith A. Mathison: God’s Means of Assurance
—Jerry Bridges: The Blessing of Discipline
—R. C. Sproul: The Anatomy of Doubt and Assurance
Each author writes with a pastoral desire to help Christians understand God’s promises and live in the fullness of his grace.

Burk Parsons serves as an associate pastor at Saint Andrew’s in Sanford, Florida, and is editor of Tabletalk magazine. He and his wife, Amber, live in central Florida with their children.Review:
"Assurance of God’s gracious, saving, Fatherly love to us in Christ is the hallmark of the Protestant Reformation’s understanding of the Bible’s teaching on salvation. This assurance (as the Reformers rightly understood) is vital to Christian life and witness. Unfortunately, too many saints are lacking in it. Thankfully a band of faithful brothers have 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!" --J. Ligon Duncan III
"If you are ever tempted to doubt that the assurance of God’s love is one of the benefits of justification, here is an excellent antidote. This book will set you on the path to security, stability, and joyful discipleship." --Alistar Begg
"Thank you, Burk, for such a clear, thorough, and easy-to-understand book on what the Bible has to say about the assurance of salvation. For those who have questions, this will give them the answers!" --Joni Eareckson Tada
