The Apostle Paul broke into doxologies when writing about the electing grace of God. Far from cold, lifeless doctrine, the revelation of God's sovereign mercy stirs heart and mind, and comforts the soul. In this engaging exposition of Ephesians 1 we are presented with the triune God in all his glory, but especially in his work for the salvation of lost humankind.
Expounds all themes in Ephesians 1, including divine predestination. Shows how Paul brings to bear on these themes the light of Gods magnificent grace in Christ.

He is a council member of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and of the Gospel Coalition, chairman of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology, and coeditor of the Reformed Expository Commentary series.
An outstanding book. It derives from a pastoral context and is marked by clarity of thought. It leads us through the difficult subjects of election and predestination with what I could only call a masterly touch.
Richard Phillips opens this extremely timely New Testament epistle in a manner that reflects both solid interpretation and a pastors desire to instruct and lead people into a deeper understanding of the Christian life....highly readable and applicable studies.
The doctrine of election is one of the most obvious and yet most debated, ignored, or even denied teachings in Scripture. But, as Chosen in Christ makes clear on every page, this precious truth is good news for every believer. Just read it and see for yourself!
