    This book is written in a debate form of sorts. One author will state his premise, the the other three respond with their agreements and disagreements. Feinberg and Geisler focus on God's sovereignty and control, while Reichenbach and Pinnock focus on free will. I felt like Feinberg, Geisler, and Reichenbach, despite their disagreements, manage to maintain the nature of God's foreknowledge as believed by Christians for about two thousand years. Pinnock, on the other hand, goes off the deep end, so to speak. The God he describes resembles nothing the church has believed in for centuries. His God DOESNT KNOW the future, and we can thwart his will. In other words, god can fail. His will is not always accomplished. I could go on, but Pinnocks god I have never seen in scripture, and interestingly, he offers no scripture to support his view. Still, if you want to find out what "open theists" believe, this book is for you. Well written, easily readable, you should buy this book to hone your own beliefs about our God and this topic. Well worth it. I wouldn't give it to a new believer, however. If one doesn't already have a decent grasp of Christian theology, it could get confusing. A definite buy!!

    Gives a general idea of the four different views. Very good read if you want a general consensus on predestination.

    The format is excellent with the various views presented. However, the arguments were more philosophical and less scriptural.

    This book effectively instructed me of the various beliefs on the topic of predestination and free will. Its strength is its format. With four different contributors it is not subject to a bias representation of one viewpoint or another. It also allows for the other contributors to write responses to each of their counterpart's essays. The language of the book is somewhat technical and is recommended for those who are familiar with the subject or are ready for some critical reading. This book has affected my personal view while giving helpful insight into the four major viewpoints on predestination and free will.
