JesusWordsSalv-crop2Jesus' Words on Salvation

A new book that focuses on Jesus' words on salvation (justification and atonement are by repentance from sin and obedience besides faith, and not from faith alone), pursuing the line of reasoning that led Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Cost of Discipleship (1937) to proclaim Jesus taught a gospel of "costly grace."

Forgiveness - Salvation in Original Testament:

6 Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; 7 let the wicked forsake his way,and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6-7)
