Product Description

Grace is the heart of God to do you good when you deserve it least. But do we really know how deeply we don't deserve it? Only God can reveal that to us. He does it through the Bible. And when he does, the wonders of his grace explode with brightness as never before. These Five Points are about how Christians come into being, and how we are kept forever. It reaches back into times past when we were freely chosen. It reaches forward into the future when we will be safe and happy forever. It reaches down into the mysteries of the work of Christ, purchasing the gift of faith for all God's children. And it reaches into the human soul, glimpsing the mysteries of the Spirit's work as he conquers all our rebellion and makes us willing captives of King Jesus.

Piper believes that our experience of grace grows with our grasp of God's gracious work. He invites us to come with him on this quest.

Endorsements

I love this new book by John Piper. I don't know of any other brief book on this subject that so manifestly takes us down into the Scriptures and then so wonderfully lifts us up to see the glory of God. Many people will be encouraged, and not a few will have their faith jolted in the best way possible.
-Kevin DeYoung,
Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan

Nothing has changed my perspective and made more sense of God, life, and the world than the doctrines of grace. John Piper makes a complex theology understandable. Five Points will assist you to see how big and good our gracious God actually is.
-Darrin Patrick,
Lead Pastor, The Journey, St. Louis, Missouri

Imagine being able to chat over a meal with John Piper about the five points of Calvinism. That's pretty much what you get in this book: a clear statement of these life-changing truths delivered with warm pastoral sensitivity in a conversational style. You won't find yourself being browbeaten. Instead, you'll find yourself invited to marvel at God's wonderful grace. The only thing missing is the meal.
-Tim Chester,
Co-Director of the Porterbrook Network and pastor of the Crowded House, Sheffield

    A clear and concise introduction to Calvinism

    No greater need exists within today's church than for its rediscovery of the reformed doctrines of grace. And while that subject can be extensive and its pursuit intensive, its most fundamental tenets can be reduced to what are frequently referred to as "the five points of Calvinism." The "TULIP" acronym (total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints) elicits emotional responses on both sides of the soteriological aisle, frequently producing mischaracterizations and faulty understanding. In his small (94 pages) but helpful book, John Piper cuts to the chase and lays out a clear presentation of "The Five Points." He begins with a brief historical overview, proceeds to explain them concisely, and concludes with his testimony and that of others who have blazed the trail of Calvinism before him. This small volume would be useful as introduction to the subject for those just beginning to consider it, as well as brief rebuttal to those who oppose it. It also would serve as a helpful launch pad for small groups wishing to discuss the doctrines the grace. As with all of his writings, Piper is thorough without being needlessly verbose. The book's brevity is its strength. Those wishing to dig deeper will be motivated to do so by first reading this introduction.

    Maybe the best, short, pastoral treatment of TULIP

    This book is probably the best, short, theologically sharp but pastorally heart-felt explanation of the the five points of Calvinism out there right now. The chapter on limited atonement is particularly helpful. I highly recommend it for any Christian but particularly those in positions of spiritual leadership in the local church.
