In reading To Be Saved by Jeffery Distad, it is easy to see that Jeffery is passionate about getting the good news of the gospel and salvation out to all those he can. He has authored this little book to expose the errors that many assume about salvation. His book explores the many erroneous myths concerning what it takes to spend eternity in heaven with God. Myriads of people believe that they can live a good enough life to earn their way into heaven. Jeffery exposed the error and shows that no one will ever be good enough to earn salvation. Jeffery then explains that since we cannot be good enough, our hope for heaven must be placed in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. In a loving, non-judgmental way, Jeffery leads his readers through the minefield of errors and into the light of the Scripture. His path leads to the only scriptural method of entering heaven which is salvation by faith. He desires to see people come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
How does one assure their place in heaven after they leave this earth? Jeffery Distad takes up this question and fully explains the process in this interesting book, To Be Saved. Jeffery tackles the often believed but still erroneous ideas that works will somehow magically open the door to heaven. Using the Bible, Jeffery shows that salvation is not based on any work—good or bad—but instead is based on the finished work of Jesus Christ. Since salvation is based on Jesus, there is no way one can ever earn entrance into heaven. Jeffery explains in an interesting manner and simple sentences that salvation is not based on works. He shows that no matter how good a person may think they are, they will never be good enough to earn heaven. Therefore, one must accept the free gift of salvation from Jesus Christ based on His work on the cross. Even though this book is written for children, many adults will enjoy it and learn from reading it.
