Nearly everyone wants to go to heaven when they die. Nearly everyone assumes they will go there. And yet the Bible paints a picture of the “road that leads to eternal life” being found and traveled by few. Careful students of the Scriptures often find themselves wondering, How can I be sure of my salvation?
Veteran Bible teacher Donald S. Whitney guides us carefully and patiently through the Bible’s teachings on salvation and eternal life—steering us clear of misplaced confidence and pointing us always toward Christ our hope. If doubts about your salvation ever disturb your peace, turn again and again to this book for refreshing clarity and confidence in the God who guides your steps.
Every book Don Whitney writes is worth the cover price. How Can I Be Sure I’m a Christian? is doubly so. Christians struggling with assurance of their salvation should buy and read this book. Pastors should buy a box of them to give to doubting church members.
by Jason K. Allen, president of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
Don Whitney has given us an excellent book on a vital subject, one skillfully demonstrating the difference between assurance and presumption and showing how genuine assurance can be pursued and preserved.
by John Blanchard, international evangelist
How Can I Be Sure I’m a Christian? is a must-read for new and old Christians alike, since we’ve all struggled with doubt. Read this book and rejoice in God’s assurance!
by Brent D. Garrison, vice president of education at CEO Forum
If you have questions about your assurance or even somebody else’s, you should read this book. Dr. Whitney’s illustrations are superb, and his borrowings from the great theologians of the past are wise, stimulating, and well chosen. I commend his work highly.
