"In The Prematurely Saved Garvey challenges the banality of so much American religion, citing the all-too-common assumption that just because one believes in Jesus one has arrived at Christian maturity. The whole of the New Testament summons us to seek this maturity, which is always beyond us, drawing us into the future. In 23 challenging little chapters Garvey explores the dangers to ourselves and to others when we arrogantly think we are saved and are therefore right about everything. The need to be right, he says, is a way of shoring up the ego and has nothing to do with the search for truth. Indeed it is a way in which we protect ourselves from the message of Christianity."
