Knowing and Growing in Assurance of Faith
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
Assurance of faith is the conviction that one belongs to Christ through faith and will enjoy everlasting salvation. It is more than believing the gospel - it is believing that these truths apply to you. Having assurance affects life in more ways than forgiveness of sin, alleviation of guilt, and salvation from the punishment of hell - it affects your whole being, firing up your affections for Christ, your unshakable trust in God, your burden for the unsaved and your joy in life and even death.

Joel R. Beeke is President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and Pastor of the Heritage Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

As one who has personally benefitted from Dr. Beeke's teaching on assurance over the years, I'm delighted that the mature fruit of his thinking, writing, and speaking about this vital topic is now being made more available and accessible in this simple guide to such a profound and practical subject. May many discover through these pages, "I am His, and He is mine."

I'm delighted to see this book make Dr. Beeke's expertise more widely accessible, and hope that many more will now benefit from it as I did. To be fruitful, healthy and happy in Christ, Christians need to know the truths laid out for us here.
