The doctrine of salvation stands at the heart of what it means to be a Christian. This uniquely organized study goes a long way in presenting the richness of this basic but glorious doctrine. The Language of Salvation examines thirteen different terms used in the Bible, all of which combine to convey the fullness of the single concept of salvation. Kuligin explores the background and meaning of each term, all of which serve to accent the beauty of redemption. Along the way, the author points out how each of these facets of biblical salvation can be used when sharing the gospel and celebrating God’s redemption in worship.
