Chosen by God is absolutely the best, most concise, straightforward explanation of the concepts of free will, predestination, God's sovereignty and how all these issues interrelate. I give the book away like tracts to those fellow believers who labor under the misconception that we save ourselves or that we can veto God's choice for our lives. The Lord is sovereign. None other. --Ligonier Website
From the Back Cover
We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty. We love him because he first loved us.
Predestination, says R. C. Sproul, isn’t just for Calvinists. It is for all
biblical Christians. In this updated and expanded edition of Chosen by God
, Sproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesn’t create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints the portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans. There is mystery in God’s ways, but not contradiction.
