Excellent Book on Paul's view of Perseverance  Apr 19, 2005
Anyone who is interested in a more balanced and Biblical understanding of "eternal security" or "perseverance of the saints" should consult this book. Gundry-Volf does an excellent job presenting the traditional Reformed view of perseverance and security through the writings of Paul. The exegesis and detailed analysis of difficult warning passages are outstanding. The book is divided into four sections that deal with Paul's perspective on how believers continue in the salvation already given to them through faith in Christ. The first section deals with the various passages that speak of Paul's understanding of soteriological security. Passages that are examined include: Romans 8:29-30; Philippians 1:6; 1 Corinthians 1:8-9, and several others. According to Gundry-Volf, Paul strongly argued FOR eternal security throughout his letters. The second section deals with how immoral conduct affects Christians' security according to Paul. According to Gundry-Volf, ethical failure among true believers does NOT jeopardize their salvation as proven by passages in Romans 14:1-23; 1 Corinthians 8:7-13; 11:27-34, but can lead to spiritual impoverishment and divine chastisement (even leading to physical death). However, certain more "grievous" sins practiced as a lifestyle can call into question the reality of salvation among certain members of the visible church (1 Corinthians 5:1-5; 6:9-11; and Galatians 5:19-21). Therefore, sin cannot interrupt the continuance of a believer's salvation, but serious sins practiced as a lifestyle demonstrate an unregenerate heart. The third section deals with Paul's understanding of Israel's election and how Israel fits into Paul's understanding of eternal security, and how professing Christians show themselves to be unsaved by abandoning the true Gospel. Gundry-Volf does an excellent job showing that Paul believed that Israel as a whole would someday convert to Christ before the Parousia (Romans 11:26), and that Paul doesn't hold out hope for salvation to those who turn away from or resist the Gospel presenting by him (Galatians 5:1-4). The last section deals with how Paul understood his calling as an Apostle and how his readers would be affected by his Apostolic mission. According to Gundry-Volf, Paul wished to "win the race" for approval, not for salvation (1 Corinthians 9:27). He wanted to successfully bring as many people into the Kingdom so that he may receive an eschatological reward on top of his salvation. He didn't question his salvation, but only his effectiveness as an Apostle. However, he feared that his labour would be in vain if his readers didn't respond to the Gospel he presented in a favourable way. Yet, he didn't question the salvation of those who responded positively; only those who rejected the Gospel and his Apostleship were in danger of proving themselves as unregenerate. Gundry-Volf's book lacks the shallow proof-texting of some who have written books on the same topic (e.g., Dan Corner). This book is very scholarly and thoroughly exegetical. Every difficult passage is examined and explained. However, I would recommend readers to learn some Biblical Greek and modern German before tackling this book since Gundry-Volf tends to use many Greek phrases and cite many German scholars. Overall, this is an excellent book for those wanting a better understanding of this very important issue.
