In this warm, pastoral, and faithful aid for any Christian wanting to delve deeper into the doctrines of grace, Dr. Milton explains the doctrine of perseverance of the saints with sensitivity and clarity. He defines this famous "Fifth Point of Calvinism" and distinguishes it from other theologies (including "once saved always saved"). He also encourages all of us to delight in this beautiful doctrine that brings assurance to the believer, hope for the prodigal, and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.


"This truth of the perseverance of the saints, which entails the final security of believers, is a profoundly practical point of Scripture truth. Mike Milton knows that, and explains and applies it to you in a wonderfully instructive and compelling way."

—Ligon Duncan

"Mike Milton thinks like a scholar, but writes like a pastor. He takes subtle issues and, without dumbing them down, explains them in easy-to-understand terms. That is a wonderful gift to the church."

—Joel Belz
