This book is not designed to counter the disbelievers but rather to open a significant biblical concept for Christians who simply do not know what to believe or how to make sense of the Bible. With conflicting teaching coming from all sides, many Christians, although not renouncing their faith, simply give up. Others, although believing the Bible and unwilling to give up, understand little of its message. Then some wonder what the real way is to become a Christian, if there is a real way. It seems appropriate to select the most fundamental of all biblical subjects: what do the Scriptures teach about Gods offer of salvation. Whom do I invite to read the book? Anyone who is the least bit interested in the topic. This includes skeptics, brand new believers whose knowledge of what the Bible teaches may be quite limited, and veteran Christian Bible students who may find something to add to their store of Bible knowledge. As well it includes 1those jaded Christians whose initial response is, "Salvation? Havent I been subjected to enough of that? Lets get on with something more interesting." If for veteran Christians the doctrines seem repetitious, someone who understands salvation correctly will always find delight reading its repetition, for the grace of God which brings salvation will always be music to his or her soul. Such a book could explore all the details and fine nuances of the subject, but as professional theologians are aware, this would require several volumes. It seems more helpful to write a book short enough that people will not be intimidated by its length yet comprehensive enough to deal with issues of major concern to the largest number of readers. The book had its beginning as a series of Bible studies the author taught to an adult Bible class over three months of Sundays. Teachers of adult Bible classes who may want to use it as a text or for lesson materials will find questions for discussion at the end of each chapter.
