'This is an impressive book.  The volume is well-organized and the essays well-written, and the volume both sheds fresh light on old issues and breaks genuinely new ground.  The essays are fascinating, insightful, and rigorous -- and in some cases, at least, edifying.  *Being Saved* is an excellent resource, and I will return to it often.' -- Thomas H. McCall, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and the University of St Andrews

'This is a brilliant, multifaceted collection of original, engaging essays on the Christian concept of salvation. Being Saved is evidence of the dynamic, robust flourishing today of Christian philosophy and theology.' -- Charles Taliaferro, Professor of philosophy at St. Olaf College, and co-editor of the Blackwell Companion to Philosophy of Religion 

"The new generation of Reformed dogmatics has arrived!  Cortez, Farris, and Hamilton have assembled many of the best young dogmaticians, along with some giants of the older generation, to press forward in the urgent task of hearing and proclaiming the Gospel of salvation.  They do so with intellectual seriousness, ecumenical wisdom, and creative verve.  This book will show you what theological thinking is and why it is important." -- Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary
