Called to be Saints is a handbook for believers in the Twenty-first Century. Its range is from the earliest prophetic words of Enoch, through Daniel's prophecies to Revelation's establishment of the saints. Because the Last Days will be a time of persecution, it is expedient to know what God's word says about His Holiness Ones. Below is an excerpt which appears on the back cover of the volume:

Every effort from hell is directed against the saints of God. That is the truest evaluation of modern times that can be drawn. Governments, religious citadels, educational enterprises and societies have declared open war on the saints, and God is still their only resource. Biblical prophecy concludes that the intensity of opposition to the saints will increase in breadth and severity, so it is necessary to define terms and review the class.

This being the case, it behooves everyone who names the Name to have a clear picture of who the saints are in order to "make their own calling and election sure." This "calling" is found in Romans 1 and I Corinthians 1. There the phrase which is repeated in both books, written by Paul is the phrase, "Called to be saints." Paul used this phrase in relation to Jew and Gentile, for he knew there is no other calling higher, no greater designation than to be among their ranks and no more powerful position to occupy than that of being a "saint."
