Summary

Innovative excursion into New Testament teaching on the earthly life of faith. How did New Testament writers understand the period between a believer?'s initiation into the Christian faith and his or her graduation into death and the hope of resurrection? In Getting Saved Charles Talbert and Jason Whitlark, together with four other expert contributors, discover patterns of meaning in the way the Gospels, the Pauline and other epistles, and Revelation comprehend postconversion faithfulness not as legalism (wherein an individual attains heaven by his or her own efforts) or covenantal nomism (wherein God saves the believer but staying saved requires obedience and effort) but, rather, as new covenant piety, in which God?'s ongoing, enabling grace sustains the believer?'s earthly life in Christ.
