A full-force explanation and defense of monergism.
It is a debate that has raged since before the Apostle Paul put pen to parchment: what is salvation?
In the Reformed community the doctrine of salvation known as 'monergism' is the dominant belief, but many outside of that camp understand the doctrine or the complex exegetical and theological issues involved. In Salvation by Grace: The Case for Effectual Calling and Regeneration Matthew Barrett lays out a comprehensive case drawing on exegetical and theological study of Scripture for monergism--or the belief that God effectually calls, secures, and regenerates Christians by his exclusive accord.
Barrett examines Scripture in light of recent developments in scholarship, and demonstrates how the Reformed faith in its historical tradition faithfully teaches the biblical doctrine of salvation. Slightly Imperfect.
