Thursday and Friday

First, I apologize for not blogging yesterday--I had computer trouble, but after a phone call with a helpful tech support person, things are fine now. So, first, the book review . . . .

Once Saved Always Saved??? by Steve Cordle

Steve Cordle's book is both a refutation of the once saved/always saved teaching and a study of the book of Hebrews. He does not go through the book chronologically but discusses the details of his topic, including overconfidence, neglecting spiritual growth and faith, the importance of having a submissive heart, confidence in God's care for us, and restoring the fallen. Illustrations from Scripture give readers a reference point for independent study and illustrations from contemporary life help reinforce his thesis.

And now for this week's Friday fun . . . a literary quiz . . . .
