Product Description

In Salvation and Sovereignty, Kenneth Keathley opens new discussion on Calvinism's five points by introducing the theology of an early Reformation idea known as Molinism. Keathley argues that only three of Calvinism's five TULIP points can be truly be rationalized when using Scripture and attempts instead to build upon a new acronym known as ROSES:
    Radical depravity, Overcoming grace, Sovereign election, Eternal life, Singular redemption
Through a proper understanding of Molinism, readers who have found unbiblical Calvinism's points of "Limited Atonement" and "Irresistible Grace", will find reassurance in the assertion that God's sovereignty is still sound with an equal emphasis on human freedom.

Publisher's Description

In Salvation and Sovereignty, Kenneth Keathley asks, “What shall a Christian do who is convinced of certain central tenets of Calvinism but not its corollaries?” He then writes, “I see salvation as a sovereign work of grace but suspect that the usual Calvinist understanding of sovereignty (that God is the cause of all things) is not sustained by the biblical witness as a whole.”

Aiming to resolve this matter, the author argues that just three of Calvinism’s five TULIP points can be defended scripturally and instead builds on the ROSES acronym first presented by Timothy George (Radical depravity, Overcoming grace, Sovereign election, Eternal life, Singular redemption). In relation, Keathley looks at salvation and sovereignty through the lens of Molinism, a doctrine named after Luis Molina (1535-1600) that is based on a strong notion of God’s control and an equally firm affirmation of human freedom.
