Anthony Shuler3 Stars Out Of 5May 17, 2009Anthony ShulerThis book is an interesting introduction to the topic but has some flaws. The first issue I take is that no normal person will understand this book. It was written on a high scholarly level which excludes most people. Second, their was a glaring bias in the book. Horton was so worked up over the doctrine of election, the definition of Calvinism, and the TULIP acronym that he completely neglects the issue of eternal security. Geisler does a good job but his references must be double checked since he has a bad habit of listing verses that have nothing to do with the topic at hand as if they supported his view. Ashby used a mistranslation of the Greek in a key text which supported his view better than what the verse actually says. Harper does not use the Bible a whole lot in his writings but primarily is quoting from John Wesley as if he were the authority on the issue. It will get you introduced to the issue but will certainly not settle the issue for anyone.
James4 Stars Out Of 5March 21, 2008JamesA wonderful and refreshing look at a doctrine that we have been arguing over for hundreds of years. I enjoyed the balanced introduction by J. Mathew Pinson. I was some what disappointed with the content from Geisler and the severe lack of information from the five point Calvinist approach. Ashby's position however was quite amazing. It was a new look on Arminian theology that is as old as Arminius himself. Reading this book has changed the way I look at Arminius, Wesley, and Calvin. It is amazing how we can twist a persons words after so many years. A very good read, it will make you upset, challenge you, and cause you to rejoice.
Jay B5 Stars Out Of 5December 29, 2007Jay BSo important to understand these different views. It equips you with 4 different standards of eternal security, and the authors of each are quite wise. The book features an analysis of arguments by each of the writers as well. I personally found that Stephen Ashby produced some of the best material. Norman Geisler is a great theologian of our times, but he is perhaps even left in the shadows of Mr. Ashby's interpretations. We are to remain in the ways of Christ. It is stated in so many Epistles, and that is for a reason. It will upset the Classical Calvinist if you follow my summary. It is rather interesting that this particular school of thought never truly examines the validity of scriptures that incorporate 'remain in the truth'. You will have an excellent opportunity to read a volume's worth of information in this brief book. God will speak to you if you pray for him to provide the answers for you. Any amateur theologian will find this a must read. Theology is such a biased study in the specific different thoughts. This will give you a heads up to the arguments that never seem to cease. May Christ Bless you while reading this fine book!
Don Admire4 Stars Out Of 5May 18, 2005Don AdmireThere is no such thing as 'moderate' Calvinism. It is a logical as well as biblical fallacy. To quote Milli Vanilli..."it's all or nothing". Good read in our 'theologically' as well as 'gospel' depraved church.
James M. Leonard4 Stars Out Of 5July 16, 2002James M. LeonardThe most significant aspect of this work are the sections contributed by Stephen Ashby, who brings fresh contributions to the topic.Most people untrained in traditional theological systems will find the defense of eternal security in the first chapter by the five point Calvinist perplexing, perhaps irrelevant. However, keep reading.Geisler's defense of modified Calvinism is unimaginative.
