Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology is required reading in many courses on biblical theology—and with good reason. The textbook’s emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine, along with its clear writing, and contemporary approach make it an indispensable resource for many Christians.

This series presents, as a separate book, each of the seven main parts that make up the 1,600-page Systematic Theology, making it more portable, affordable, and less daunting.

Part 5—Making Sense of Salvation explores God’s common grace to redeem those who will be saved, and to demonstrate his goodness, mercy, justice, and glory.

Important Topics Include:

  • The order of salvation—from God’s choice of people to be saved to the chosen people receiving a resurrection body.
  • Effective calling—the act of God the father speaking through the human proclamation of the gospel to summon people to himself in saving faith.
  • Regeneration—a secret act of God in which he imparts new spiritual life to us.
  • Glorification—when Christ returns and raises from the dead the bodies of all believers for all time who have died.

Written in a friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect, Making Sense of Salvation helps readers overcome wrong ideas, make better decisions on new questions, and grow as Christians.
