The One Who Endures

Can we claim the doctrine of perseverance is the distinct doctrine in the Reformed tradition? Jay Collier does. When thinking about the Reformed faith, we typically about think election and predestination. But in his recent book, Jay makes a strong case for the distinctiveness of the perseverance of the saints around and post Reformation time.

How important is a proper reading of Augustine for getting this doctrine right? Jay's study uncovers competing readings of Augustine; a few men interpreted Augustine's writings as if he was making a distinction between God’s gift of conversion and God’s gift of perseverance.

Listen to how historical theology - including the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints - had social and even political implications!
