Publisher's Summary

What does Jesus mean when he says, "Follow me"?
Twenty years ago, pastor-teacher and best-selling author John MacArthur tackled that seemingly simple question and wrote a book that has since taken its place among Christianity's classics. This 20th anniversary edition of MacArthurs provocative book has been revised and contains one new chapter.

'Lordship Salvation' vs. 'Only-Believism'

MacArthur does an excellent job in this book of showing how the gospel as preached in the New Testament calls us to repentance and faith in Christ. 'Free Grace' critics who have said that Macarthur's notion of 'Lordship Salvation' smuggles in the concept of works, and thereby pollutes salvation by pure grace, miss the point that repentance and faith are both gifts from God, and are all of His grace from beginning to end. They also overlook the fact that both Jesus and the apostles taught that authentic faith is always evidenced by a changed life, as MacArthur also shows here.



The author also takes us on a tour of church history, and from the patristic era and early church fathers, through to the Reformers and the Puritans, shows how there is nothing new about so-called 'Lordship Salvation'. It is simply what faithful followers of Christ have always proclaimed as the gospel.



In an age of increasingly 'easy-believism', I highly recommend this book.
