Lisa Martin’s new poetry collection seeks the kind of lyric truth that lives in paradox, in the dwelling together of seeming opposites such as life and death, love and loss, faith and doubt, joy and sorrow. Here readers will find a range of moods, tones, and subjects, as well as both traditional and contemporary forms—from sonnets to prose poems. This is a collection imbued with the light of an enduring, if troubled, faith. With its focus on spirit, ethics, and how to live well, Believing is not the same as Being Saved offers a tender meditation on the moments that make a life. There’s a way of speaking as if the difference matters, as if the road home is finite—everything begins and ends somewhere, like your hand in mine, or how last light fractures in the limbs of pine—while beyond my window, a coyote follows a trail into the dusk that only it can see. — from "Map for the road home"

The full salvation of God to us is revealed in the book of Romans in two sections. The first section is God's redemption through the death of Christ, and the second is God's saving in the life of Christ. Hence, 5:10 says, 'If, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved in His life.' The main significance of what is covered in Romans chapters one through four is the redemption of Christ (including reconciliation) in God's full salvation, and the main significance of what is covered in Romans chapters five through sixteen is the saving of Christ in God's full salvation. In this book we will see only the main significance of the second section of Romans, that is, how Christ saves us in His divine life.

The title is a common question asked by very zealous Christians (often to surprised people on the street and rarely appreciated). They mean well, but it isn't always the best question to ask without at least an introduction! Most believers don't even know what they mean themselves. The book sets out the entire process, from election in eternity to arriving in Heaven. Christians should check their own beliefs to see if they really are saved... and if they are, how to teach what salvation actually is. There may be surprises along the way even though it is all scriptural!

Do you ever wonder if people know the meaning of the words they speak? When you hear someone say they saw a “bad ride,” do they mean they saw a broken-down vehicle? Maybe the roller coaster at the amusement park wasn’t operational. If you say your alarm is “going off,” is it making some audible alert to wake you, or is it having a temper tantrum? How do I really know what you mean? Many factors go into determining the meaning of words and phrases communicated to the listener. Knowing this, when I hear someone say they “got saved,” if I don’t know their understanding of the term, I have to wonder what they mean. Here I try to explore what people mean when they use this common phrase heard in the Baptist churches of the American South. It is a serious question with eternal consequences: “What do you mean you got saved?”
