    1. This books provides a helpful overview of the contours within the discussion on sanctification. Coupling claims with critique and simplicity with scholarship, these contributors offer varying perspectives which will guide the reader through some of the essential distinctions between positions.



    2. It gives a clear view of the five different views presented; Wesleyan, Reformed, Pentecostal, Keswick and Augustinian-Dispensational. However, the text is very dry and thick and at times very hard to read through. It is a good text book, but if I had not been required to read this book I would have stopped after the first view unless I was very interested in sanctification points of view.


    3. This book provides generally helpful summaries of the differing perspectives. In the end, each view generally agrees with the others regarding the distinction between positional sanctification and progressive sanctification. The primary difference between the perspectives is in what some perspectives add to progressive sanctification. Methodists add entire sanctification and perfectionism. Pentecostals add Spirit-baptism and speaking in tongues. Keswicks add the crisis moment initiating a higher [...]


    4. Overall this book was not what I was expecting. Out of the five views represented they only differ on a few distinct points. Where the authors diverge there inst enough dialogue, while the commonalities get a lot of pages. I felt from a reformed perspective that the representation given by Hoekema was solid but a more prolific writer should have been sought out. Out of the five views the representation of the Keswick position by McQuilkin was the most practical. Readability 2 out of 5 stars. Inf [...]


    5. As an editor myself, I have to say this book could use one. Practically no introduction and considerable evidence that the contributors were not on the same page as what they were to provide or who they represented - themselves? the Bible? a whole religious tradition? Moreover, most went out of their way to moderate their views and affirm one another's. This may show evidence of their own sanctification but it also weakened this work as an educational or persuasive book. Note: It appears that so [...]


    6. An interesting read although not remarkably helpful. The writers share more commonalities than differences and spend little time discussing those differences. Part of the reason why there are little differences is because they are all clearly theologically aware and careful in their exegesis. This of course means that you get the best arguments from each of the positions which is always a good thing. To be honest, I wouldn't really recommend it if you're wanting to learn more about sanctificatio [...]


    7. Not bad not great Hoekema has some good insights not his best work though would have like to have seen them engage a broader range dealings too much with "fundamentalist" and american categories would have liked to have seen more historical models addressed, maybe even some broader global perspectives but that would have required engaging Orthodoxy : ) and at that time of publishing it would have been unheard of.


    8. Good book. Read for theology of christian holiness with Dr. Chris Bounds. At times, the authors are frustratingly confusing or contradictory, but it was helpful to understand various views of sanctification. Interestingly, the Wesleyan-Holiness position is the only one to advocate entire sanctification as a second work of grace as a crisis experience by faith where God deals with our sinful nature. I wrote two essays from this book.


    9. Dieter on the Wesleyan View: "Entire Sanctification" - process-crisis-process; Wesley never argued for complete eradication of sin nature; simply argued for the doing away of our bent toward sin. (difference?)


    10. One of the better offerings in the "five views" series, with classical presentations of each view (unlike many in the series where the chosen authors are too hybrid in their positions to be truly archetypal of their assigned view).


    11. The comparisons and contrasts between the representatives of the five churches presented in this book are thoroughly interesting. I thought this work to be very deep and an important work, especially considering the topic. A worthwhile read.


    12. Very helpful in discussing the differences 'entire sanctification' and 'progressive sanctification' as well as two natures in one man.


    13. This is a slightly older book, but it still offers a good, succinct overview of 5 differing views of Christian sanctification. Definitely a good place to start.


    14. Frankly, I don't understand why they wrote so much about this Because none of what they argue about the nit picky stuff affects one's salvation
