    A solid explanation of the history of early Calvinism and Arminianism. Though a 5 point Calvinist only sees the world as either one or the other this is not the case and Vance is not Arminian, he is a Biblicist. The book presents clear refutation of the false teachings of prominent past and present Calvinist theologians by quoting what they have said and comparing it against scripture. The book is large in part due to the inclusion of the quoted scripture rather than mere references. This is in contrast to many Calvinist authors I have read who simply provide references hoping the reader will not look them up to find that the reference does not support their theology. A great resource for those who believe in historical and grammatical interpretation of scripture.

    Calvinistic theories are weak when compared to what the Bible clearly states. Calvinism must twist the Scriptures to make them say what they clearly do not say. This book plus Dave Hunt's "What Love is This?" should be read with an open mind and heart by anyone who has been troubled by Calvinism.

    I am finding this book is an excellent review of the historical facts of the development of Calvinism. I appreciate the thorough research the writer has done.The author is respectful when surveying a subject with which he holds an opposing view. Great read !

    You're foolish to hate the God of glory. Vance does the best job i've seen in coming up with concise statements from others and unfolding the doctrine of God with honesty and without flair. This will help anyone desiring to know truth.

    This book was very disappointing. His exegesis and hermeneutical approach to scripture is extremely lacking. On the up side the first 200 pages or so give a fascinating historical account of Calvin, Augustine and Arminius. Other than that I really cant recommend it.Although I don't consider myself a Calvinist, I am closer to that side of the debate then the Armenian side. I really don't know how predestination and the sovereignty of God works with the free will of man, and I am content to leave it up to God and find out when I get to heaven. However, I do believe that God is sovereign and that the Holy Spirit dose has to work in a sinners heart convicting of sin, righteousness, and judgment, in order for that person to be saved, and I do believe that God also has to draw the person to himself as well. No one can be saved on their own. Nevertheless, each person also has free will, and salvation is possible for all people. I also believe that repentance and submission to the Lordship of Christ are essential for genuine conversion to take place. Vance does not believe this, and that is my biggest problem with the book. It doesnt really matter if you believe in the Calvinist definition of predestination, or not, but it does matter what you believe about the requirements of salvation because that has eternal consequences. Whether Calvinist or Armenian, the most important issue is that we are preaching the gospel biblically, that is, preaching sin, law, righteousness and judgment. Preaching that people must repent, (turn from their sin) and turn to God, trusting only in Jesus Christ to save them, which includes submitting to the Lordship of Christ.
