Five Views on Sanctification

Framsida

Christians generally recognize the need to live a holy, or sanctified, life. But they differ on what sanctification is and how it is achieved.

How does one achieve sanctification in this life? How much success in sanctification is possible? Is a crisis experience following one's conversion normal--or necessary? If so, what kind of experience, and how is it verified?

Five Views on Sanctification--part of the Counterpoints series--brings together in one easy-to-understand volume five major Protestant views on sanctification:

  • Wesleyan View - represented by Melvin E. Dieter
  • Reformed View - represented by Anthony A. Hoekema
  • Pentecostal View - represented by Stanley M. Horton
  • Keswick View - represented by J. Robertson McQuilkin
  • Augustinian-Dispensationalism View - represented by John F. Walvoord

Writing from a solid evangelical stance, each author describes and defends his own understanding of the doctrine sanctification and then responds to the views of the other authors.

The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.
