Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Saved by Grace

The second book in a triad of expository studies in central topics of Reformed theology. Characterized by careful scriptural analysis and accessible writing, the late Anthony A. Hoekema clearly teaches the theological foundation of soteriology.

Couldn't put it down once I started reading it. This is my favorite book on soteriology. Kinda tough sledding, but in my opinion, Hoekema makes difficult topics pretty easy to understand, especially compared to other theologians/teachers of his caliber. You will profit from reading this.

This book is a valuable resource for understanding Reformed Soteriology – the doctrines of Sovereign Grace are explained thoroughly – I especially was ministered to on the chapter of Union with Christ – My only contention is with Hoekema’s interpretation of 2 Peter 3:9, Matt. 23:37, 2 Corinth. 5:20 and Ezekiel 3:11 (pgs. 75-79) which he does not appropriate the contexts of each of these passages – believing that we should refuse rationalistic positions and “…not lock God up in the prison of human logic” – Karl Barth is quoted in reference to Justification – what he states is not neo-orthodox in nature but may cause those who understand Barth to read closely – Though there is a variety of positions held in Calvinism in regards to Limited Atonement - Hoekema’s position as what I determined from the book is that the Atonement is ‘efficient only for’ the elect not a ‘sufficient for all' but only effectual for’ the elect position.
