Deep, constructive teaching on salvation Feb 29, 2008
John Murray does a great job showing the different aspects of salvation and how God works in each part of those aspects in our life. This is a book that takes you to the basics and does a good job of showing scriptural reference. Its simple, to the point and a good book for someone that is trying to teach any aspect on salvation.
Must-Read Jan 14, 2008
Murray's REDEMPTION ACCOMPLISHED AND APPLIED is worth its weight in gold. A must-read for a serious study of the biblical soteriology.
No One Does It Better Nov 24, 2007
'It belongs to our faith in God to avow that He cannot lie and that He cannot deny Himself. Such divine "cannots" are His glory and for us to refrain from reckoning with such 'impossibilities' would be to deny God's glory and perfection.' pg 13
'Those for whom Christ died are those for whom He rose again and His heavenly saving activity is of equal extent with His once-for-all redemptive accomplishments.' pg 71
'There is only one source from which we can derive a proper conception of Christ's atoning work. That source is the Bible. There is only one norm by which our interpretations and formulations are to be tested. That norm is the Bible. The temptation ever lurks near us to prove unfaithful to this one and only criterion.' pg 76
'..in the New Testament the terms for calling, when used with reference to salvation, are almost uniformly applied, not to the universal call of the Gospel, but to the call that ushers men into a state of salvation and is therefore effectual. There is scarcely an instance where the terms are used to designate the indiscriminate overture of grace in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.' pg 88
'We often fail to grasp the rich meaning of biblical terms because in common usage the same words have suffered a great deal of attrition.' pg 90
'Union with Christ is really the central truth of the whole doctrine of salvation, not only in its application but also in its once-for-all accomplishment in the finished work of Christ.' pg 161
'Union with Christ binds all together and insures that to all for whom Christ has purchased redemption He effectively applies and communicates the same.' pg 165
Biblically Based Mar 7, 2007
I am thoroughly impressed with Murray's reasoning from the Scriptures. His case for effectual calling preceding regeneration is convincing. This is one of the books I will definitely recommend without reservation on soteriology and the questions of redemption (Pt.1 of the book). 5 shining stars!!!!!
Tough But Thorough Understanding of Atonement Nov 21, 2004
Dr. John Murray's classic on the Reformed perspective of the atonement offers insights from the Scriptures that help the reader to better grasp the doctrine of particular redemption (or limited atonement). Murray's writing style is rather technical and the average reader may struggle with some aspects of the book.
If you desire, however, a Reformed perspective on the redemptive work of Christ and for whom did Jesus die on the cross then I would highly recommend this book. Murray, along with John Owen, represent the best Reformed writers on particular redemption.
For an Arminian view see John Goodwin's REDEMPTION REDEEMED: A PURITAN DEFENSE OF UNLIMITED ATONEMENT.
