Perspectives on Election presents in counterpoint form five basic common beliefs on the doctrine of spiritual election (for example, predestination) that have developed over the course of church history with a view toward determining which is most faithful to Scripture. Each chapter is written by a prominent person within each tradition, and each writer has the opportunity to respond to each differing view.Despite the focus upon a topic that divides many people, editor Chad Brand says, The goal of this book is to add clarity to the discussion and to further the discussion, insofar as it is possible, in an amiable manner.”
Chad Brand is associate professor of Christian Theology at Boyce College of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
Wihout a doubt, this book the mostthorough presentation and clear debate of all angles on the Doctrine of Election along with the corollary doctrines of Foreknowledge andPredestination. Each author is given lotsof paper space and ink to present his viewof Election and then the other 4 authorsimmediately critique that viewpoint. It seems that nothing has been left out ofthis book concerning the doctrine of Electionand its corollaries. Yes, this book is thorough and will take time to read sincea lot of words are packed into each page,but the rewards of seeing the wholepicture relating to Election will surelybe worth it. Buy this book only if you reallywant to see and know the whole panorama of Divine Election!
