Item description for Saved by Grace by Anthony A. Hoekema...
Overview This is a comprehensive, dynamic, and practical presentation of the biblical teaching on salvation, including discussion of the role of the Spirit, union with Christ, the gospel call, regeneration, conversion, repentance, and more.
Publishers Description A comprehensive, dynamic, and eminently practical presentation of the biblical teaching on salvation. In discussing the facets of the working out of salvation -- the role of the Spirit, union with Christ, the gospel call, regeneration, conversion, repentance, and so on -- Hoekema does away with the classical ordo salutis ("order of salvation") by viewing these facets largely as simultaneous aspects in the process of salvation rather than sequential steps on the way to salvation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Saved by Grace?
Grossly Deficient May 16, 2006
This book is grossly deficient because it does not emphasize the Jewish guilt in killing Jesus Christ enough. Jesus Christ was persecuted by Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians -- Jewish religious leaders of the time who worked together with the Jewish court (King Herod was a Jewish king!) to pass a death penalty against Jesus Christ in the Jewish High Court (Sanhedrin). To ignore the suffering of Jesus Christ at the hands of Jews is to minimize the suffering of Christ. How can you understand grace when you don't understand what Jesus Christ had to go through. I would recommend reading of the Gospels carefully -- they give ample account of Jewish persecution against Christ. This writer should follow the example of Gospel writers.
Salvation thoroughly explained Jan 31, 2006
I can't begin to tell you how helpful I found and will continue to find this book. It delves deep into the Bible to explain all the ins and outs of God's saving people from their sins. Hoekema interacts with church history, contemporary theology, popluar teaching across denominations, as well as classical, medieval, and reformation era theologians on the subject of salvation. This book is thorough yet readable. It is not for a new Christian, but if you want to go beyond the basics this is the book for you.
Great Book on Soteriology Apr 19, 2005
This book is a very good outline of soteriology from the Reformed perspective. Anyone who wants to get a good dose of the doctrine of salvation from a traditional Reformed perspective should read this. Though it gets into technicalities and some Greek it is readable and organized. However, Hoekema's "Dutch Reformed" background lets some of his interpretations be influenced by that background. For example, his interpretation of Romans 7. For students wanting to understand what the Reformed camp teaches regarding salvation this book is for you.
Outstanding Nov 24, 2004
This book is great. Anthony Hoekema tackles the doctrine of soteriology head on with great care for use of Scripture, and delivers a masterpiece.
I highly reccomend this work.
The best reading available on the topic of salvation! Jan 11, 1999
Hoekema brings much light to a dark soul! If you are looking for a book about Christian salvation that is both readable and academically solid look no further. Hoekema writes clearly and with both a clear pastoral perspective and a sharp theological edge. You will walk away from this book with a solid understanding of the doctrines of salvation.
