Overview

Throughout the history of Christianity, great confusion has surrounded the condition for eternal life and the meaning of the term "repentance." Does it mean to do penance for one's sins? To feel sorrow or remorse for sin? To forsake all and follow Christ? To stop sinning or at least make a determination to sin less? Dr. Michael Cocoris writes with clarity in explaining the biblical meaning of this term as simply "a change of mind" or "a change of belief." This book offers a distinctively biblical approach to the subject of repentance. It surveys the words "repent" and "repentance" in the Bible as they are used by John the Baptist, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Apostles Peter, Paul, and John, and the writer of Hebrews. The key Greek and Hebrew terms are also explained. The result is a refreshing treatment of repentance that is based upon the authority of God's Word rather than human tradition.
