"Throughout his many years of teaching and preaching, Dale Moody has consistently warned Baptists that an anemic notion of 'eternal security' has displaced the biblical teaching of 'the perseverance of the saints.' In this passionate exhortation about the danger of apostasy, readers will hear what generations of students heard in Moody's classroom–a fresh examination of biblical texts too often neglected or domesticated for confessional purposes. Never one to mince words or to fail to point out his disagreements with other scholars, Moody's exegesis illumines the starkness of the warning and the urgent call to holiness in persevering faith."
