    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Excellent. Simple and straighforward

    R.C. Sproul has a way of making difficult subjects seems simple. He does this while staying with the scriptures. Dr. Sproul does this well with Chosen by God. Still not as earthshaking as Holiness of God. Still excellent. Dr. Sproul has a somewhat humorous yet effective way of presenting various subjects.

    An excellent book on the Doctrines of Grace. Whether a Calvinist or wondering what Calvinism is really about this a great book on the subject. Not too heavy, but leaves one thinking.

    This book really will help you understand predestination and reformed theology. The book has some deep parts, but Dr. Sproul quickly explains and summarizes his points. If you really want to understand the Reformed predestination doctrine free of misrepresentation from the opposing views, (and believe me, I've heard some weird things that people attribute to Calvinism that simply are not true) please get this book.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Solid Introduction

    Since its publication in 1986, Chosen By God has become a classic introduction to Calvinism, for it is clearly one of the best introductions to Calvinism available. Sproul, ever the theologian but one with a gift for making the complex simple, begins with an introduction to God's sovereignty and then moves to free will before tackling the 5-points of Calvinism (as summarized in the acronym TULIP). He changes several of the terms, so the acronym eventually reads RULEP, but provides good justification for doing so. Not being one to back down from a fight, Sproul also tackles the subject of double predestination and assurance of salvation. The book closes with a Questions and Objections section which answers some of the most common objections to Calvinism, such as "Is predestination fatalism?" and "What does predestination do for the task of evangelism?"

    It is important to note that this book is only an introduction to Calvinism, so does not provide exhaustive commentary on any single topic, each of which could easily become a book of its own. While 200 pages is plenty to introduce topics, it certainly does not allow for in-depth discussion.

    The chapters on God's Sovereignty and Free Will were particularly well-written and alone are worth the price of the book. A book that discusses difficult concepts but does so in a biblical manner, and ultimately provides very satisfying conclusions, I give this one my unreserved recommendation.
