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.

I was raised in a non-reformed church but attended a reformed Presbyterian church for about 4 years some 30 years ago. I now attend an independent church that is open to both the reformed and non-reformed views of theology and have taught a Sunday school class there for about 25 years. The Bible is what I teach from. I do not use standard Sunday school curriculum. The class is smile'ingly refered to as Theology 101. While the Bible is our main text, I do use commentary material from many sources extensively and I love getting into the sticky texts about predestination and election and the questions they evoke from the class members.
I say all of the above for this: When next I get into those areas I will certainly share with the class some of the material/rationale I have encountered in "Chosen By God." It is written at a level and with a vocabulary with which my class members will be very comfortable. I will feel very comfortable in recommending they purchase the book no matter what theological position on these matters they have chosen to take. Having to wrestle with ones own views on these matters leads to spiritual growth when properly done.
Needless to say, I am delighted with my purchase of the Kindle edition of this book and give it the highest rating. Should I change my mind as I read further I will amend this review.
Once you read "Chosen By God" you will immediately begin reading scripture with a new clarity and understanding. This book will make your Bible study more meaningful, and it will shed light on scripture who's meaning may have eluded you in the past.
Far from being a position of arrogance or supremacy, an understanding of election will lead you to true humility. There's nothing you can do or say, nothing you can "accept" or believe; you are saved by grace, through faith (a faith that comes from God, not one you can "self-generate") and that is it.
R.C. Sproul explains the truth about scripture like no one else. I recommend splitting your reading time equally between the Bible and "Chosen By God" until you finish "Chosen By God", and then just focus on the Bible. I say this because there are many "Christians" who have an unbiblical view of salvation, and I believe they got there through false teaching and poorly guided Bible study. This book will keep you on track with the "Good Book"!
