Jim Deck4 Stars Out Of 5The Great DebateAugust 16, 2022Jim DeckQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Geisler gives a clear definition of extremes of both sides and carefully proceeds down a sensible middle ground.
bad theology1 Stars Out Of 5can there be a balance between God's might and man's sin? seriously?March 14, 2022bad theologythe entire premise is flawed. Geisler's book uses philosophy to bash sovereignty. In one chapter he uses scripture to declare God's power and authority over all (Ch 3) then in the next he uses philosophy to immediately tear down the scripture. God can't be sovereign if man sins. God cannot have purposes that include sin even though Joseph's story teaches this is false, and of course the crucifixion. whatever. throw this book in the trash
Pastor David5 Stars Out Of 5excellentMay 19, 2021Pastor DavidThis book was excellent on providing both perspectives of the calvinist-non calvinst debate. If you adhere to and believe that we have free will then the author will help you sucessfully defend that position.
Steelfaith1 Stars Out Of 5Closet ArminianJuly 22, 2018SteelfaithQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1If you're looking for a book that claims to be balanced but takes every opportunity to bash Calvinism, then this is the book for you. While trying to seem impartial, Geisler comes across as a closet Arminian/Pelagian. The Arminian/Pelagian heresy just will not die, especially with so-called reputable theologians like Geisler pushing its agenda forward. It's a not so balanced view and it's an extremely boring read on top of it all. I'm quite unimpressed and wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
CaseyCovenant1 Stars Out Of 5A book so poor and disappointing that The Potter's Freedom by Dr. James R. White had to be written as a rebuttal!November 5, 2017CaseyCovenantQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Chosen 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.
