Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Often treated like the younger sibling in theology, the doctrine of sanctification has spent the last few decades waiting not-so-patiently behind ideas like election and justification by faith alone. In this volume, twelve theologians explore the meaning and significance of sanctification for contemporary evangelical theology and practice.
