Overview

No Condemnation: A New Theology of Assurance tackles a perennial question of deep pastoral and spiritual concern. In the face of sin and failure in Christian living, what assurance of salvation can we have? Is assurance the byproduct of keeping the rules and producing good works? Is it found by introspectively testing the authenticity of our inner motives and faith? In his able study of the biblical, theological and historical dimensions of this problem, Michael Eaton has arrived at an answer that challenges both traditional Arminianism and Calvinism. In the gospel he finds a radical grace, a grace that produces salvation that overflows in assurance and fully encourages our life in the Spirit. No Condemnation is a meaty and challenging reassessment of the role of the law in biblical revelation and Christian living, the nature of the Christian's inheritance, and the meaning of the New Testament warnings against "falling away." This important and challenging study is for both students of theology and those engaged in the front lines of pastoral ministry.
