Publisher's Description

If God is in control, are people really free? This question has bothered Christians for centuries. And answers have covered a wide spectrum. Today Christians still disagree. Those who emphasize human freedom view it as a reflection of God's self-limited power. Others look at human freedom in the order of God's overall control. David and Randall Basinger have put this age-old question to four scholars trained in theology and philosophy. John Feinberg of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Norman Geisler of Dallas Theological Seminary focus on God's specific sovereignty. Bruce Reichenbach of Augsburg College and Clark Pinnock of McMaster Divinity College insist that God must limit his control to ensure our freedom. Each writer argues for his perspective and applies his theory to two practical case studies. Then the other writers respond to each of the major essays, exposing what they see as fallacies and hidden assumptions. A lively and provocative volume.

    Gives a general idea of the four different views. Very good read if you want a general consensus on predestination.

    The format is excellent with the various views presented. However, the arguments were more philosophical and less scriptural.

    This book effectively instructed me of the various beliefs on the topic of predestination and free will. Its strength is its format. With four different contributors it is not subject to a bias representation of one viewpoint or another. It also allows for the other contributors to write responses to each of their counterpart's essays. The language of the book is somewhat technical and is recommended for those who are familiar with the subject or are ready for some critical reading. This book has affected my personal view while giving helpful insight into the four major viewpoints on predestination and free will.
