Product Description

If God is in control of human destiny, why does he hold us responsible for our choices? It's a quandary as old as theology itself. Now updated with new chapters, Geisler's popular resource offers a balanced biblical perspective on the debate between God's sovereignty (Calvinism) and human free will (Arminianism)---and a rebuttal to other viewpoints. 288 pages, softcover from Bethany.

Publisher's Description

The Reformed movement has gotten younger and more outspoken since Chosen But Free was published more than ten years ago, making the topic of divine election one of utmost importance to the church today. Young Christians in particular are in constant debate over these issues, wondering what is true and how it might affect their lives.

People on both sides of the debate will want to read a "middle-ground" book. In addition, this revision deals more directly with the personal issues involved in the debate. For example, how do our beliefs about free will affect us when it comes to perceptions of love, personal responsibility, and purpose? And how does it affect our ability to worship God?

    A book so poor and disappointing that The Potter's Freedom by Dr. James R. White had to be written as a rebuttal!

    Chosen but Free is a disappointing book because it misrepresents historic and Biblical Calvinism. Dr. Norman L. Geisler argues for a moderate Calvinism, but this moderate Calvinism is in fact actually a modified form of synergism/arminianism. He holds to a form of Arminianism while inconsistently also holding to perseverance of the saints/eternal security.

    Read Chosen but Free for yourself and then read The Potter's Freedom to see what I'm talking about. Dr. James R. White who is a Greek professor and professional debtor defending the Christian faith wrote The Potter's Freedom which is a direct response to Chosen But Free.

    I'm glad to see a mind like Norman Geisler tackle such a controversial issue. While I don't fully agree with Dr. Geisler, I respect the case he makes for his view. The book defines, and then defends Geisler's view of election. The book is well researched, and well written. The second edition even includes a response to James White's "The Potter's Freedom". I heartily recommend it to everyone interested in this topic.

    Geisler makes a valiant effort at explaining Reformed Soteriology, but in the end comes up with something less than a balanced view. He does fully represented the traditional/classical Reformed perspective, but rather a bit of a caricature of it.

    Obviously I haven't been through this thing cover to cover, but it's very well researched and there isn't a better authority on the subject than Norman Geisler.Over all, Some profound perspective on an important topic.

    I was recommended this book due to some radical viewpoints that were being taught at my church which I prayed to the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth. The Christian Radio show host that I highly respect recommended this book to me. What an eye opener to the different viewpoints on Sovereignty & Free Will. It was revealed that my church believes in the "Extreme Calvinist" point of view for which Dr.Geisler explains that Calvin himself didn't believe in. Dr. Geisler clearly points out the moderate viewpoint for which lines up best with biblical scripture and where the extreme views came from and the dangers of the extreme views from extreme calvanism to extreme arminiaism. It's a great tool to have to defend the truth.
