|About the Book|
What in the world does it mean to be saved? Our post-Christian world looks at an old bumper sticker like the one that says JESUS SAVES! and sarcastically responds, Well, I guess we should be thrifty too! The Bible makes it quite clear that God is holy and we arent -- and were in a lot of trouble. We learn that Jesus came to rescue us from Gods wrath, to pay the debt we owed a holy God, to draft us into His army to go rescue others. This book looks at the Bibles teaching on salvation from seven different perspectives: LOST, LOVED, LURED, LEARNING, LABELED, LIBERATED, and LAUNCHED. A strange epilogue entitled LOATHED completes the book. Ideal for small group study, Saved! is written for new believers and older believers who need to be reminded of Gods rescue -- and how we ought to respond to the saving work of Jesus.
