"Free Grace" Theology: 5 Ways It Diminishes the Gospel
Wayne's new book: "Free Grace" Theology: 5 Ways It Diminishes the Gospel
Will be available: Jul 31, 2016 (you can pre-order on Amazon) Must the gospel message include a call for people to repent of their sins? “No,” say Free Grace advocates. Is evidence of a changed life an important indication of whether a person is truly born again? “No, again,” these advocates say.

But in this book, Wayne Grudem shows how the Bible answers “Yes” to both of these questions, arguing that the Free Grace movement contradicts both historic Protestant teaching and the New Testament itself.

This important book explains the true nature of the Christian gospel and answers the question asked by so many people: “How can I know that I’m saved?”
