Becoming A New Person

Front Cover
Xulon Press, 2004 - Religion - 684 pages
Most Christians will readily admit that they lack a solid understanding of the fundamentals of salvation. Although the Bible speaks of regeneration, renewal, and perfection as the three main elements of salvation, most Christians are unfamiliar with any of these terms. Their understanding of such a vital matter is often limited to a few scattered Bible verses, which they would be unable to draw together into a coherent pattern. With that in view, Becoming a New Person engages the reader by elucidating what Scripture teaches about salvation and by demonstrating how God's transformation power can mold us into truly new people. The approach is exegetical, the style is thoroughly practical, and the tone is irenic, even when dealing with controversial subjects.
