If there were a Guinness Book of World Records entry for `amount of times having prayed the sinner's prayer , I'm pretty sure I d be a top contender, says pastor and author J. D. Greear. He struggled for many years to gain an assurance of salvation and eventually learned he was not alone. Lack of assurance is epidemic among evangelical Christians.

In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, J. D. shows that faulty ways of presenting the gospel are a leading source of the confusion. Our presentations may not be heretical, but they are sometimes misleading. The idea of asking Jesus into your heart or giving your life to Jesus often gives false assurance to those who are not saved - and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality.

Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance, showing that salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives. He also answers the tough questions about assurance: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation?

    " An excellent work on assurance of salvation and perseverance of the saints. It's the baby cousin of Tom Schreiner's "The Race Set Before Us." I will be handing this book out to young believers and those struggling to remain faithful alike. Good work by Pastor Greear. "

    " A fantastic book on the assurance of salvation. The author is a Baptist, so I have a few quibbles here and there. But those are minor. It's a really great book overall. I'd recommend it to anyone who struggles with doubts about their salvation. The book is currently on sale at Lifeway. "
