About the Book

At every Sunday Mass, Catholics confess that Jesus came down from heaven “for us men and for our salvation.” But what does “salvation” mean? In this robust and accessible book, Scripture scholar and theologian Michael Patrick Barber provides a thorough, deeply Catholic, and deeply biblical, answer. He deftly tackles this complex topic, unpacking what the New Testament teaches about salvation in Christ, detailing what exactly salvation is, and what it is not. In easy and readable prose, he explains what the Cross, the Church, and the Trinity have to do with salvation. While intellectually stimulating, Salvation: What Every Catholic Should Know is deeply spiritual, and at its core is the salvific message that God is love, and his love is one of transformation and redemption. 


Praise for Salvation: What Every Catholic Should Know

“What does it mean to be ‘saved’?” I have often been asked this question. Michael Barber gives the much needed and impressively thorough answer. It fills a lacuna in Catholic literature! It is well grounded in scholarship but written in a manner that is accessible to every baptized Christian.

Nina Sophie Heereman, Assistant Professor of Sacred Scripture, St. Patrick’s Seminary and University

Barber offers a robust, edifying, and multifaceted account of God’s gracious gift of salvation. With his eye primarily on the biblical text and secondarily upon the Catechism, Barber’s work will help clarify misconceptions Protestants have regarding the Catholic understanding of salvation and helpfully shines light on where true differences remain.

Joshua W. Jipp, Associate Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Dr. Barber has given us all a very precious gift: a book that shows both what Jesus Christ came into this world to save us from and, equally important, what he came to save us for.

Brant Pitre, Distinguished Research Professor of Sacred Scripture, Augustine Institute Graduate School of Theology

Dr. Michael Barber is an outstanding scripture scholar and theologian! This book proves it. Want a deeper understanding of the purpose and mission of Jesus? Look no further. Want to know what redemption and salvation are all about? This incredible book has the answers you’ve been looking for!

Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, Author of 10 Wonders of the Rosary
