Divine election is certainly one of the more profoundand controversialdoctrines in the Bible. Does God elect people because they believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, or does God elect people in order that they will believe in Christ? Much of the disagreement and controversy concerning this doctrine proceeds from a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means.
This is why Storms begins his analysis of divine election with an attempt to clarify precisely what is at stake and, at the same time, correct misrepresentations of it. He takes a thorough look at the doctrine as it is presented in Romans 9 as well as the rest of the New Testament. He also explores freedom of will and the order of salvation. Appendixes address "Three Problem Passages" and "Who Can and Cannot Pray for God to Save the Lost?"
Sam Storms (PhD, University of Texas at Dallas) has spent more than four decades in ministry as a pastor, professor, and author. He is currently the senior pastor at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and was previously a visiting associate professor of theology at Wheaton College from 2000 to 2004. He is the founder of Enjoying God Ministries and blogs regularly at SamStorms.com.
Lee5 Stars Out Of 5Chosen for Life; The Case for Divine ElectionMarch 20, 2017LeeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an outstanding volume discussing both the Arminian and Calvinist positions in Divine Election. You will receive an understanding of both positions. If you have not formed your own conclusion when you begin reading this book, you doubtless will after reading it very carefully.
I believe Dr. Storms writes clearly enough for most Christians to understand his thesis. Those who have a clearer knowledge theologically will grasp more from this writing
George Kydd5 Stars Out Of 5August 26, 2009George KyddI'm currently reading this work. It's most comprehensive in it's argument for Divine Election with elcellent Biblical references. The two I just bought are for gifts. I highly recommend it.

A "must-read" for all true Christian believers in the Lord Jesus Christ!Maybe later on they will have a larger print edition for those of us who are older...nevertheless, I think it is an excellent work, and well writtenfor all to understand!
