Can believers lose their faith? Robert Peterson addresses an age-old question crucial to an insecure modern world. Tracing preservation and apostasy throughout the Bible, he illustrates how God saves and keeps his people, giving them confidence to live for his glory.

The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability—a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.


"This book treats a difficult but crucial topic for the Christian life in a way that is both true to Scripture and pastorally sensitive. Written for a wide audience, not only pastors and teachers but other interested persons will find reading it edifying as well as instructive."

—Richard B. Gaffin Jr.

"Readers will find strength and encouragement from both the biblical and theological themes . . . . [of] preservation, perseverance, assurance, and apostasy so capably explained by Robert Peterson. It is a joy to recommend this book."

—David S. Dockery

"Fresh, crisp, clear, honest, insightful, and edifying . . .  arguably the most helpful resource on the subject for pastors, teachers, small group leaders, and interested church members."

—Christopher W. Morgan
