"I recommend this book because of its careful, biblically sound treatment of an important theological and ministerial issue. In respectful but straightforward fashion C. Adrian Thomas discusses some of the misunderstandings that arise from biblical warnings addressed to Christian communities in the book of Hebrews and elsewhere in the New Testament. His diligent study of the key passages and their history of interpretation over the centuries provides a cogent and wide-ranging evaluation of competing viewpoints. In the process he sets the exegesis and theology of these warnings on a more solid footing." (Buist M. Fanning, Department Chair and Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary)
