The Doctrine of Assurance

Burk Parsons visits Christ the Center to discuss two books he has edited. A majority of the discussion centers on Assured by God: Living in the Fullness of God’s Grace, a wonderful collection of contributions on the reformed doctrine of assurance. Burk explains the importance of the doctrine for the Christian life.

The second book is John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology, another great book about the great reformer. This book stands out from the multitude of recent Calvin titles in that it was written for the layperson. Listen to Burk speak about these two books.

Does Patsons think he should even be writing on the subject of assurance the way he has treated his brethren and jeopardizing their faith?
