This groundbreaking work presents the concepts of apostasy and perseverance in light of recent interpretative and intertextual methods. Oropeza argues that the Pauline letters include warnings to congregation members who are in danger of falling away, and Paul often considers these members to be authentic converts to the early Christian message. A prime example of this is presented in the apostle's use of the ExodusÐwilderness traditions in 1 Corinthians 10:1Ð13. In an effort to persuade congregation members against apostasy, Paul echoes examples from the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish traditions regarding Israel's divine election and punishments. The Corinthians are exhorted against conducting themselves in a manner that parallels the ancient Israelites who, after crossing the Red Sea, were rejected by God in the wilderness because they murmured and committed vices such as idolatry and sexual immorality. Paul cautions the Corinthians that if they commit such vices in their own spiritual journey, they will suffer divine judgment before the culmination of the eschaton. These warnings are located within larger rhetorical arguments related to the problems of meat sacrificed to idols, congregational factions, and misperceptions about the end times. Oropeza also interprets passages on apostasy and perseverance in Paul's other letters, and he interacts with theological perspectives associated with the perseverance of the saints, including Calvinist and Arminian traditions. His work provides a fresh alternative to this theological controversy.

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Bully, Until You, Rival, and Falling Away comes the sizzling conclusion to the Fall Away series. The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg… Everyone wants to be me. Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care.

The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do. They all talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate? But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here. Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.

This book was birth out of a need for the church to give an account for the people that have fallen away from the body of Christ due to church hurts. We are in the last days and the word of God says that judgment will begin in the House of God. I am not judging, I am just trying to be one crying in the wilderness for the body of Christ to STOP. I was tired of ministering to people with church hurts and or talking to those that have fallen away due to church hurts and hearing them say the church is full of hypocrites. We know that this is not true, but the old proverbial saying “one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch” pushes us as a body of believers in that bunch and we have to bring a dividing line between the bad apples and the good. And make the bad apple accountable and even give them a chance to right some wrongs while yet in the land of the living before judgment. How can we draw the sinners into God amazing grace when we have inside hurts greater if not worse than the worlds pressures itself?

“Falling Away” is the story of Terrance Carver; Poet, coward and lost child of the Universe. Terrance is on a quest, a quest to right wrongs? A quest to alter the past? Or is it merely a quest of self-preservation? The night of the bungled armed robbery all those years ago still hangs over him. The night that saw his youngest brother arrested and, the night Terrance Carver was disowned by his eldest brother and most importantly, this was the last night he ever saw Lucinda. Now finally after years of hiding in a dank city refuge, The Liar’s Den, he summons the courage to return home to the scene of his (almost) crime. Terrence Carver will have to confront his siblings; one imprisoned, the other in marital turmoil, street corner gangsters, a wise cracking priest, runaway children and car thieves waiting to get caught, before he can beg for the forgiveness of Lucinda. “Falling Away” is not only an acknowledgment of the shades of grey that define us all, but it poses the question what does it mean to be good? And why are some people better at it than others?

The word ‘backslide’ literally means to ‘turn back’ or ‘turn away’ from God, our first love, or the Word of God to satan, the world, the flesh, or evil. Backsliding is a sliding back. Though backsliding is not sudden in onset, it may escalate rapidly. Backsliding is different from falling away or apostasy, which is the extreme end of backsliding. Apostasy or falling away is the act or state of rejecting the Christian Faith and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. But backsliding has to do with going into sin, getting lukewarm, leaving your first love, living in compromise and worldliness, and such things. It is a sliding back − a going back − from our former good state.
