Will the abuse still continue?

My husband has been in jail twice for domestic violence, and he actually has a history of abuse with his ex wife. Lately he has attended anger managment classes and DUI classes. We are separated and have a "no contact order," but he still calls me and promises everything is gonna be ok. He is asking me to go back together. I want to believe in him since he has behaved well due to his extreme fear of the police and jail.  Even though I have noticed he has changed a lot, i don't trust him completely, and I wonder if this is the moment of truth and I should move forward....
