Wayne G. Boulton served as president of the Presbyterian School of Christian Education; as professor of Christian ethics at Hope College in Holland, Michigan; and as pastor of several congregations in Maryland, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA), he is the author of many books and articles, and co-editor of From Christ to the World: Introductory Readings in Christian Ethics (1994).
"Boulton's account of election will be welcomed by anyone who
struggles with aspects of this difficult and controversial
doctrine. This is a deeply thoughtful engagement with key
scriptural and theological themes, but also, as a fitting legacy
from a much-beloved teacher and pastor, Boulton wants us to see why
this doctrine matters for our lives, emphasizing its positive
implications for individuals, the church, and the world."
--Suzanne McDonald, Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Western Theological Seminary
"For Christians wondering what to think about the doctrine of election, God Saves is the best book ever written. With pastoral sensitivity, sound exegesis, and beautiful prose, Boulton dispels entrenched misconceptions and reveals the electing God to be the ecstatic heart of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures. Election is not about a chosen few, Boulton shows, but about a God whose saving work cannot be bounded by any doctrine. Boulton's book is a treasure."
--Peter J. Thuesen, author of Predestination: The American Career of a Contentious Doctrine
