Publishers Description "Test yourselves to make sure you are solid in the faith. Don't drift along taking everything for granted. Give yourselves regular checkups. You need firsthand evidence, not mere hearsay, that Jesus Christ is in you. Test it out. If you fail the test, do something about it." (2 Cor.13:5, The Message Bible) "My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God's Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion." (1Jo 5:13, The Message Bible) The epistle of 1 John identifies the vital signs of eternal life. They provide a diagnostic tool that will reveal our true spiritual condition. We can accurately test ourselves for the presence, or absence, of eternal life. Also, the strength, or weakness, of each vital sign reveals the quality of our spiritual health and where we need to take emergency action. Calvin Partain was born to parents who were devout believers in Jesus Christ. He was saved in his childhood years. When a senior in high school God made it clear to him that his calling in life was to be a pastor-teacher. His formal training includes the normal College, Seminary, and countless seminars and conferences. But his main preparation for writing this book has come through more than fifty years of serving people as their pastor. Calvin is theologically conservative. His conviction is that the Bible is God's inerrant revelation of Himself to man, written by divinely inspired men. Calvin has been married to his high school sweetheart for over fifty years. God gave Calvin and his wife Marion two sons and a daughter, two grand-daughters and three grand-sons. One son and a grand-daughter are in heaven.

Awesome book. This is great reading for anyone. It gives the believer tests to be certain their belief in God is real. For the doubter, it gives great direction.
Written just for me? Jan 21, 2008
Partain's insights in this book seem so personal that it was as if he was speaking directly to me. It was uncanny how the book related to my life and questions I've wrestled with off and on all my life. I believe the book is one that God, himself, can speak through and I believe God did speak to my heart as I read. My only criticism is that the book should have a study guide or discussion questions included. I teach a Bible study for young adults and this book will make an excellent study book for us, but I could use a little help from the author with teaching tools. The layout of the book is so handy for a 10 week study course! I can't wait to see how my group responds!
