Overview With scholarship that is thorough yet accessible and a tone that is convincing but noncombative, Dr. Lightner explores the current confusion over issues such as: the vanishing concept of personal sin, the influence of New Age ideas on the deity of Jesus Christ, and the controversy over "Lordship salvation" among evangelicals.
Publishers Description The author studies what Jesus believed about the inspiration and inerrancy of the Old Testament Scriptures and how that belief should affect our view of biblical authority.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sin The Savior And Salvation?
a solid reference volume May 6, 2000
This is an excellent presentation of the doctrine of salvation and of the complimentary doctrines of sin, and the Savior. According to the author, all three should be viewed together as a comprehensive whole in order to arrive at a proper understanding of our salvation, since they are intimately related to each other throughout the scriptures.
Written from a dispensational point of view, Lightner lays everything out in easy to understand terms, and in a format that is easily accessible when used as a reference. He covers all the bases and does include brief commentary on some controversial issues such as Lordship salvation, and eternal security. He is courteous in his writing and although he does mention some particular individuals by name, he is careful not to engage in reckless polemic.
You will find his writing clear, well organized, and refreshing. Written in non-technical terms, and geared to the general reader, "Sin, the Savior, and Salvation" is a solid reference volume and I highly recommend it.
