Beeke, Joel R.
NEARLY EVERYONE HOPES TO END UP IN HEAVEN ONE DAY. In fact, a whopping 99% of American believe they’ll eventually reside there. Yet the Bible claims that only a few will find the “road that leads to eternal life.” So how can anyone be sure of spending eternity with Jesus Christ?
In How Can I Be Sure I’m a Christian? Donald S. Whitney explores the issue of assurance and outlines how Christians can experience a satisfying certainty of eternal life.
If occasional doubts prevent you from fully experiencing the security and peace that Christ offers, you’ll enjoy the clear assurances offered here. By countering a broad range of doubts with a clear, scriptural basis for confidence, Whitney provides encouragement for believers and gentle warnings to those who base their confidence in themselves rather than in God.
Since 2005, Don Whitney has been an Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, where he also serves as Associate Dean. Prior to that, he held a similar position (the first such position in the six Southern Baptist seminars) at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. He is the founder and President of the Center for Biblical Spirituality.
"If you have questions about your assurance or even somebody else's, you should read this book. Dr. Whitney's illustrations are superb, and his borrowings from the great theologians of the past are wise, stimulating, and well-chosen. I commend his work highly." -James M. Boice, Pastor, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia.
"Don Whitney has given us an excellent book on a vital subject, skillfully demonstrating the difference between assurance and presumption and showing how genuine assurance can be pursued and preserved." -John Blanchard, International Evangelist and author of Right with God.
