Chosen By God (Review)





On Saturday I will teach, with a team, on Salvation. Specifically about the doctrine of Election. I found R.C.'s book Chosen by God to be very helpful. This book is worth a second read. Sometimes his arguments are complex enough that I need to re-read the material. This short book is thoughtful, biblical, self-deprecating, and humorous. A few times, I found myself thinking there is more to this issue than you are making it; however, that was not frequent.

Here is what Amazon says,

With nearly 200,000 copies sold in its 25 years, Chosen by God by Dr. R. C. Sproul is a contemporary classic on predestination, a doctrine that isn't just for Calvinists, says Sproul. It is a doctrine for all biblical Christians. In this updated and expanded edition of Chosen by God, Sproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesn't create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints a portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans. We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty; we love him because he first loved us. There is mystery in God's ways, but not contradiction.
