Contents: Introduction. What is the Free Grace gospel? ; Why I do not use the term Lordship Salvation --
Chapter 1. Not the "Faith Alone" of the Reformation. Protestant leaders throughout history have consistently disagreed with the Free Grace position ; Therefore, the Free Grace movement today is not upholding the Reformation doctrine of sola fide, or "justification by faith alone." ; There is no logical difficulty in claiming this ; Why is the proper meaning of "justification by faith alone" so important? --
Chapter 2. No call to repent of sins. Repentance from sin in the New Testament ; Two different Free Grace explanations for the "repentance" verses ; However, saving faith does not include obedience ; Conclusion : a weakened gospel --
Chapter 3. False assurance. The result of the weakend Free Grace gospel is many unsaved people ; New Testament epistles frequently warn church-goers that some of the them might not be saved ; The Free Grace view says that people can become complete unbelievers and still be saved ; Free Grace teaching about assurance makes a fundamental category mistake ; The historic Protestant view does not say that assurance of salvation is impossible, but just the opposite --
Chapter 4. Underemphasis on trust in the person of Christ. Some Free Grace advocates say that faith equals mere intellectual assent ; Other Free Grace advocates say that faith includes trust in the person of Christ ; Both groups deemphasize the element of heartfelt trust in the living person of Christ ; Saving faith requires trust in the person of Christ, and this means that mental agreement with facts about Christ without personal trust in Christ is not saving faith ; Free Grace misunderstandings of B.B. Warfield on the need to decide to trust in Christ personally ; Chapter 5. Unlikely interpretations. Some examples of unlikely interpretations ; Conclusion.
Responsibility: Wayne A. Grudem.

Abstract:

"Must the gospel message include a call for people to repent of their sins? "No," say Free Grace advocates. Is evidence of a changed life an important indication of whether a person is truly born again? "No, again," these advocates say. But in this book, Wayne Grudem shows how the Bible answers "Yes" to both of these questions, arguing that the Free Grace movement contradicts both historic Protestant teaching and the New Testament itself. This important book explains the true nature of the Christian gospel and answers the question asked by so many people: "How can I know that I'm saved?"--Publisher's description.
