Product Description

If God is in control of human destiny, why does he hold us responsible for our choices? It's a quandary as old as theology itself. Now updated with new chapters, Geisler's popular resource offers a balanced biblical perspective on the debate between God's sovereignty (Calvinism) and human free will (Arminianism)---and a rebuttal to other viewpoints. 288 pages, softcover from Bethany.

Publisher's Description

The Reformed movement has gotten younger and more outspoken since Chosen But Free was published more than ten years ago, making the topic of divine election one of utmost importance to the church today. Young Christians in particular are in constant debate over these issues, wondering what is true and how it might affect their lives.

People on both sides of the debate will want to read a "middle-ground" book. In addition, this revision deals more directly with the personal issues involved in the debate. For example, how do our beliefs about free will affect us when it comes to perceptions of love, personal responsibility, and purpose? And how does it affect our ability to worship God?

    Geisler makes a valiant effort at explaining Reformed Soteriology, but in the end comes up with something less than a balanced view. He does fully represented the traditional/classical Reformed perspective, but rather a bit of a caricature of it.

    Obviously I haven't been through this thing cover to cover, but it's very well researched and there isn't a better authority on the subject than Norman Geisler.Over all, Some profound perspective on an important topic.

    I was recommended this book due to some radical viewpoints that were being taught at my church which I prayed to the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth. The Christian Radio show host that I highly respect recommended this book to me. What an eye opener to the different viewpoints on Sovereignty & Free Will. It was revealed that my church believes in the "Extreme Calvinist" point of view for which Dr.Geisler explains that Calvin himself didn't believe in. Dr. Geisler clearly points out the moderate viewpoint for which lines up best with biblical scripture and where the extreme views came from and the dangers of the extreme views from extreme calvanism to extreme arminiaism. It's a great tool to have to defend the truth.

    In short, this is not Gieslers best work by any means. His assumptions and sloppy handling of the subject was sad to say the least. I really expected more from a scholar of his caliber. Although he was fairly thorough, I think that he creates contradictions for himself. It felt like an axe to grind in some ways and not an honest response to the biblical verses that speak of Gods election and sovereignty. Love this man and his work but I was hoping for a better read here.

    This review was originally written for a popular Christian apologetics blog. For the sake of brevity only the conclusion is included here:

    I really enjoyed this book. I have heard several different views and have had my own critiques of them. However, Geisler has helped to organize my ideas and has shown critiques of views that I thought were quite solid. Geisler's unrelenting dedication to reconciling as much scripture as possible (required for his view of Biblical Inerrency) and his solid commitment to sound logic has made the view put forth in this book quite appealing, and the overall read quite enjoyable. I recommend it for all who are interested in the topic of God's sovereignty and man's free will; it will challenge you.
