When I was invited to write a small book on the subject of Eternal Security, I wondered whether I might be walking into a theological minefield. However, I decided to take the risk, and I am glad I did. It was been encouraging to look into the Scriptures again, to marvel at the grace of God, and to enjoy His “great and precious promises.” The more I thought about the subject in hand, the more John Newton’s well-known words echoed through my mind—
Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
While I do not expect to change made-up minds,I hope that what is written here will send reader back to the Word of God, our only dependable chart and compass. Although I write out of firm conviction, my desire is to promote peace rather than be dogmatic. I am, of course, aware that many fine believers have disagreed on this subject.
In seeking to explain various Scriptures in their context,I have sometimes traveled beyond the recognized parameters of the doctrine of eternal security. However, this is intended to help set the topic against the wide backdrop of God’s revealed truth. We must let the total testimony of Scripture adjudicate our opinions as well as our systematic theology!
I hope that all who read these pages, especially any who are being held captive by Giant Despair in Doubting Castle, will rediscover the “Key of Promise.” Let us courageously reject the despair and uncertainty of modern man. Rather, let us celebrate our assurance and expectation, knowing that we are anchored to the Rock of Ages.
John has written numerous articles and books including: Blessed Trinity, Angels, Living Churches, The Holy Spirit: Lord and Life-Giver, The Family: God’s Handiwork, For Every Cause? Now that he’s a grandfather, he’s writing books for children, too!

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
