Product Description

Many evangelical thinkers are calling into question the sovereignty of God, a theory called "freewill theism." Wright examines that theory, showing what is wrong with it biblically, theologically, and philosophically. Along the way, he looks at historical theology and makes a strong case for the Reformed view of God's sovereignty. 264 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

In recent years an increasing number of evangelical thinkers have called for a reevaluation of our understanding of God, making a case for what has variously been called "freewill theism" or the "open view" of God. R. K. McGregor Wright sees their efforts not as something radically new, but a contemporary reaffirmation of Arminianism. Concerned that evangelicals may soon find no place for sovereignty in their thinking, Wright sets out to show what's wrong--biblically, theologically and philosophically--with freewill theory in its ancient form. Along the way, he provides a short course in historical theology, making a fresh, powerful case for the Reformed emphasis on God's sovereign grace. Wright also meets challenges head-on with a discussion of the Arminian position and a chapter on the problem of evil. Finally, he subjects to close scrutiny the recent work of Clark Pinnock, a contemporary advocate of freewill theism. Regardless of where readers' sympathies lie, they will want to hear, think through and respond for themselves to the arguments Wright makes on behalf of the Reformed understanding of God.

Author Bio

Wright holds a Th.M. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a Ph.D. from Denver University/Iliff School of Theology. With his wife, Julia Castle, he codirects the Aquila and Priscilla Study Center, a Bible and apologetics teaching ministry in East Tennessee.
