Particularity and Salvation

Show Summary Details


The last chapter deals with the theme of salvation as it is treated in many of the writers and genres considered in earlier chapters. It stresses the universal concern with conversion and perseverance as stages in the process of sanctification, and notes how, in an eschatological perspective, heaven and earth are seen as very closely proximate. Turning to the vexed question of who is saved and why, it proposes that incuriosity and a faith in divine providence are commonly promoted as desiderata.

Keywords: salvation; conversion; perseverance; sanctification; eschatology; incuriosity; providence
