Excellent book! Logical and spiritual book on predestination that is easy to read. For a more technical view on the same subject by the same author, try Willing to Believe: The Controversy over Free Will by RC Sproul.
This book is an absolute must read for those who are struggling with the doctrine of predestination. Dr. Sproul presents this doctrine with unbelievable clarity. It is an easy read as well. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning about predestination.
Although not apparent because of its popular style, this is a scholarly presentation of an unpopular doctrine written by a mature theologian, and I appreciate Sprouls unbiased and honest study of this controversial subject. Im certain this is one of the better books for the non-specialist on this neglected topic, and Sproul was obviously in rare form when he wrote it. Having read several of his books, I believe anyone would be hard-pressed to find a better book written by this master-communicator! Buy this book. Find a quiet place to sit and read it. Youll be amazed at what you discover!
Before reading this book, I strongly opposed the Reformed view of salvation, but the way Sproul so clearly explains how completely biblical this view is has truly changed my perspective. Sproul shows how your view of "original sin" affects the way you view salvation. He also takes the time to explain the five points of Calvinism in simple terms and logically answers some of the most common and difficult arguments agains the Reformed view. I stongly recommend that EVERY Christian who seeks to know God more read this book, because this book (along with careful study of God's Word) has shown me how indescibable God's grace truly is!
