Overview

The doctrine of the Perseverance of the Saints is a cornerstone to Christian assurance. John Preston takes to task the false teachings of Arminius and demonstrates the error that people can hold themselves in God’s grace, or they can work to an end of salvation in their own strength. It is an exegetically sound treatise that covers both Arminianism and the Roman Catholic teachings that place “works” before grace. Preston covers how Irresistible Grace is sweet doctrine for the truly converted. He says that it is both imparted by God and received by us after a manner that is irresistible.

Meet the Author

John Preston D.D. (1587–1628) was an English puritan minister of the church, and master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. It is clear that his heart was firmly set on the propagation of the calvinistic theology; his posthumous works (edited by Richard Sibbes, John Davenport, Thomas Ball, and partly by Thomas Goodwin, D.D.) are a storehouse of argument in its favour.
