I just finished reading J.D. Greear’s latest book, Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart: How to Know for Sure You Are Saved. The book does something very few authors can pull off. The book is deeply theological, extremely practical, easily readable, and concise! The book attempts to provide a pastoral discussion on assurance. How can we know that we are truly saved? What does it mean to be a converted?
This book seems to follow the current trend in Christian book publishing dealing with conversion and discipleship. However our of those books I’ve had experience with and a few sitting on my shelf waiting to be read, this book here seems to be the most helpful and lastingly beneficial to the church.
Greear did such a good job with this little book that I think I’m going to pick up a few extra copies to keep around just to be able to pass out to people who might be struggling with assurance. The book is helpful for anyone, especially those who might struggle with the question, “Am I really saved?” If you ever asked yourself that question (and what honest Christian hasn’t?) be sure to pick this book up and give it a read. It is well worth your time. You can pick it up at Amazon by clicking here.
