G.E. Ladd on Salvation

The eminent Baptist NT scholar G.E. Ladd wrote:

"Salvation consists of fellowship with God in the midst of earthly existence and will finally mean the redemption of the whole man together with his environment ... In sum, the Greek view is that 'God' can be known only by the flight of the soul from the world and history; the Hebrew view is that God can be known because he invades history to meet men in historical experience."

The Pattern of New Testament Truth, 39-40.
