It is not uncommon for professing Christians to question the genuineness of their faith. In seasons like this, they can wonder whether it is even possible to know for sure if they are in a state of saving grace. In this book, Anthony Burgess shows that Christians not only can come to an assurance of their salvation but should pursue it. Burgess provides helpful advice for avoiding a presumptuous spirit while developing a humble confidence in grace. Here is a book that will help you understand the marks of grace and avoid some common abuses associated with self-examination. Read it with an open Bible and a prayerful heart, looking to the Holy Spirit as your faith seeks assurance.

About the Author

Anthony Burgess (d. 1664) was a member of the Westminster Assembly and pastor in Sutton Coldfield.


 “Anthony Burgess laments, ‘In former times Christians labored much for experimental knowledge, while today they are satisfied with mere brain knowl­edge.’ With biblical, practical, and Christ-focused wisdom, characteristic of the Puritans generally, Burgess helps us assess the reality of our own spiritual condition. He takes us through the Scriptures to the promises of Christ Himself, for to know Him is the assurance of eternal life. Joel Beeke has done the church of the twenty-first century a great service by making this work of the seventeenth century accessible to all who refuse to be satisfied with ‘mere brain knowledge’ of the Savior.” — Stephen J. Casselli, senior minister, Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church, Tampa, Florida
