A Long Faithfulness: The Case for Christian Perseverance

Scot McKnight

Can we choose and un-choose God? Or does he choose and un-choose us? In The Long Faithfulness: The Case for Christian Perseverance, theologian Scot McKnight examines what the Bible says about human salvation. Inspired in part by a resurgent Calvinist movement and its particular emphasis on God's meticulous sovereignty, McKnight invites us to a clear and captivating discussion about securing the way to eternal life--the role God plays, the role we play, and the key Bible passages that illuminate the mystery of salvation.

“In this age when Christianity must be only positive and encouraging, Scot McKnight has offered here a bracing challenge to easy believism and cheap grace. He has also offered a biblical and logical challenge to Calvinism. All believers in ‘eternal security’—whether Calvinist or not—must consider the challenges he lays down here. Seldom does a doctrine receive such clear, concise contradiction in such an irenic, pastoral tone.”

—Roger E. Olson Foy Valentine Professor of Christian Theology and Ethics George W. Truett Theological Seminary
