The Doctrine of Assurance

Burk Parsons joins the Christ the Center team to discusse two books which he recently edited, Assured by God; Living in the Fullness of God’s Grace, and John Calvin; A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine and Doxology.

Assurance is a doctrine that is rarely taught in the church today, and is surrounded by a lot of confusion.  In this discussion Burk talks about the ways in which assurance is hindered, and even robbed from God’s people, by poor theology.

Burk’s motivation for writing a book on John Calvin was to introduce Calvin to the lay person, combining his person with his theology, in order to strip away the unfortunate caricatures and distortions that have clouded Calvin.

All in all a very enjoyable and informative discussion.
