This is a good read. It is a good place to start if you want to understand the basics of the Reformed position of Christianity. Sproul makes it clear what the basic terms mean and uses illustrations that clearly explain these terms. He also offers a good foundation for understanding Original Sin and why we accept the state of things. In other words, he answers our objections as why we are sinners.
This my most favorite book on theology. I have read it so many times that the bonding has come loose. I stay with my old copy because of all the yellow highlighting I have done in it plus all the notations I have made. I probably have given away at least 70 copies of it and recommend it may more. RC has clearly articulated very difficult aspects of theology. It is definitely a MUST read for every person who wants to really know God.
This is absolutely a must buy if you are starting your journey through the study of Biblical election and predestination. It clears up many of the misconceptions many ignorant people have about the concept. I don't see how anyone could believe in free will due to our fallen nature, nor how anyone could not trust the Creator that they love so much with their soul. I trust God with my soul more than I trust myself. The author makes it easy to read, and is even humorous in his approach at times. Very entertaining and informative...I rarely read at all but I finished this wonderful book in 2 sessions.
If you are wondering whether or not you should buy this book, stop wondering, and buy it! Then read ityoull be glad you did. I first read Chosen by God in 1994 just after making a theological shift from Arminianism to the Reformed faith. This book cleared up the last of my questions, thus solidifying for me the truth of the biblical (Calvinistic) idea of Gods grace in predestinating the salvation of His elect, and the error of the unbiblical (Arminian) view of election by Gods foreknowledge of human decisionand I thank God for it! Chosen by God is an absolutely outstanding resource for anyone struggling with the biblical inconsistencies of Arminianism.
