Christians Great Salvation

Timothy CrossSKU: CGS7018 ISBN: 9781846257018



In Revelation 7:10, the exuberant praise uttered by the redeemed in glory is:
‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!’
Salvation is the overarching theme of the Bible, the jewel in the crown of the
Christian faith, and the cause of praise and wonder in every Christian who has
come to know its joy. The main message of the Bible could be said to be God’s
salvation of His people through His promised Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ—
the Lamb who was slain to procure the salvation of God’s people. The gospel of
Christ is ‘… the power of God for salvation to every one who has faith’ (Romans
1:16). The gospel of Christ is ‘… the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation’
(Ephesians 1:13).
These pages explore some of the facets of the many-sided diamond which is
Christian salvation—the salvation which God, through Christ, freely bestows on
the believer in His amazing grace.

If you are looking for a book that is doctrinally sound, and sets out clearly what is entailed in Christian conversion, so that it enables you to speak with conviction, understanding and enthusiasm to those who either are saved, or are seeking salvation, this may be the book for you.
There are twelve chapters in all – each one beginning with the word “Divine” – which further underlines its Biblical, God-centred theme. It opens with “Divine Redemption”; and moving on through issues such as “adoption”, “purification” “propitiation” and “preservation”, it concludes with “Divine Benediction”. Brief references are made throughout to the Shorter Catechism, 1648 and to the Westminster Confession of Faith. Verses of both well-known and lesser known hymns are also quoted to good effect.
One was glad to be reminded that salvation is Trinitarian (p.9), as 1 Peter 1:2 teaches. It is also notable that various doctrinal terms, such as redemption and justification, are defined and illustrated. The importance of this cannot be overstated. (In contrast, where Biblical expressions are used without explanation, members of congregations, or readers of Christian books, often find that they simply go over their heads.) Furthermore, it is of great assistance to the reader that the chapters of this book, which are fairly brief, get straight into the matter in hand, without starting with anecdotes, which are increasingly a feature of some modern writing.

Given the days in which we live, it is essential for the point to be made that Christian redemption depends solely on Christ (p.17). Since it is unique, we cannot redeem ourselves by what we do. O what a vital point this is! This reviewer has just been reading about King James II (1685-88) who, so it seems, sadly spent his life trying to obtain his salvation by his own strenuous efforts – and never more so than when he went into exile! How many are acting likewise today?
In reading books for review purposes, one makes brief notes of passages that particularly stand out. Here is just one of several such notes from page 79: “Justification takes us to the law courts. Redemption takes us to the slave market. Adoption takes us to family matters. Imputation takes us to the world of accounting and banking – debit and credit.”
Sentences such as these appealed to this reviewer; and they may well do likewise to others who buy and read this well-written, recommended book.
