Review of "Who Can Be Saved?"

Jim Hamilton reviews Terrance Tiessen’s book, Who Can Be Saved?

Hamilton concludes his lengthy review in this way:

"In my estimation, Accesibilistic Inclusivism [Tiessen's position] is based on extra-biblical considerations, demands that unbiblical theological categories be introduced, denies what the Bible affirms (e.g., that all are without excuse because of general revelation), and affirms what the Bible denies (that people can be saved apart from conscious faith in the promises of God, and now that the Messiah has come, in Jesus the Messiah). Let us take every thought captive to the knowledge of Christ,
and let us take the gospel to the ends of the earth."

This review will appear in the spring 2007 issue of the Trinity Journal.
