Recent Comments "Discipleship: The Expressing of Saving Faith"

Recently, I recommended "Grace, Faith, Free Will" by Dr. Robert Picirilli, theologian and former professor at Welch College in Nashville, TN. Today I am recommending another of his books, "DISCIPLESHIP: The Expression of Saving Faith."Allow me to give you an overview of his book by paraphrasing his preface (pp1-4): We have a problem. Far too many members of our churches find it far too easy to live without clear evidence of their faith. Yet, are such members really Christians? They seem to think [...]

I highly recommend this book because Dr. Picirilli takes on the issue of how does the Scriptures describe what is involved in receiving true salvation. The heart of the matter is he is dispelling and dismantling the Cheap Easy Believism that dominates the theology of so many preachers and laymen alike of our day.

Pretty good. This is essentially an Arminian defense of "Lordship Salvation." With very few exceptions, I found myself in hearty agreement with his basic thesis. At certain places I would arrive at a different interpretation of a specific passage and, occasionally, would nuance something he said differently. However, overall this book is a fruitful study of the biblical teaching on the nature of saving faith.

Picirilli does a marvelous job defining what the Bible says about salvation and its relationship to discipleship and its outworking of sanctification. He provides a helpful review of the relationship between the believer and sin. He concludes that a saved person shows that salvation through obedience to Christ.
