Kept for Jesus: What the New Testament Really Teaches about Assurance of Salvation and Eternal Security
“Sam Storms has given us a book that is fair, humble, straightforward, and helpful. He consistently presents views that oppose his own and frequently admits he does not have all the answers. He argues biblically and passionately for the truth that God keeps true believers saved to the end and focuses on the Christian life and rejects errant views, including those that cut the biblical cord between Gods keeping us and our keeping on in faith, love, and holiness. This is a good book, and I am happy to recommend it.”See All

Can Christians lose their salvation?
This question has perplexed--and distressed--believers for centuries. When faced with our sin and shortcomings, sometimes we're tempted to conclude that we've strayed too far and that God no longer loves us.
In Kept for Jesus, pastor Sam Storms addresses common concerns that Christians have related to their eternal security, offering hope and assurance from the Bible. Examining every New Testament passage that speaks to this important issue, this book charts a biblical course between those who say that Christians can lose their salvation and those who carelessly declare, "Once saved, always saved."
