Signs of Salvation
In the Bible, God acts to save people -- in this world -- from all sorts of dangers and evil. God saves us from enemies, so that we can live free from fear and at peace. God saves us from economic oppression, so that we can afford to be generous. God forgives our sins, heals our wounds, and speaks intimately in our hearts. There is no salvation, the author contends, without "signs of salvation" because salvation is for this world and the next. Richmond presents a joyful invitation to a new relationship with God, who has chosen to come in love.
