Reviewed by Daniel D Staats for Readers' Favorite

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.

This is a beautiful reminder that our salvation is based on Jesus alone. To Be Saved is a perfect book to instill the love of Jesus into our children at a young age.

Bob Rendt

In his book, just tries to earn salvation by doing works that are good but do not make him worthy of heaven. It is hilarious to read Jeff thinking each time, just one more path to heaven (work) even though in truth the path is narrow. I have read a couple reviews on other blogs and at first did not purchase this book. I work with Jeff and did not want to be disappointed by his work and have to tell him. After reading this review, I downloaded the electronic Amazon version and found it do be a style unique to Jeff and hope he has other doors open so I can continue to be enriched by more of his works from his original perspective and Child-like ADHD simple and sometimes humorous way to view life.

I am grateful for Daniel D Staats nice and fair review of my work. I am new to this game and hope to continue to publish Christian Children's books to point to God our loving father in heaven and how each of us is created uniquely by him and can only glorify him in a way that is unique to our creation. I am so blessed to have coworkers and family and a church family who support me and share this journey with me.

Thank you all.
May God shower you with the same love and blessings and protection he has given to me.

This is a wonderful resources for families and child ministry! It's sadly becoming harder and harder to find doctrinally-sound resources, but "To Be Saved" is an exceptional book for kids and adults.
