This is a great introduction to a biblical theology of the sovereignty of God in salvation. It is not simply an apologetic for the traditional five points of Calvinism but outlines the simple and nourishing doctrines from a biblical foundation. It is simple, and communicated with the same heartfelt passion that accompanies all Pipers books. There is no historical background given but the five Calvinistic doctrines are clearly explained and their implications are worked out, with each chapter making the grace of God shine brightly. It reminded me gently but convincingly why these doctrines matter greatly to Christians today. It reminded me that what is commonly called Calvinism is at the heart of the gospel for it's origin is Scripture (not Calvin).
The last two chapters (personal testimony and concluding testimonies) are a wonderful place to start reading this book, and provide motivation to read the preceding chapters.
(Theology 150 - Rutherford House)
... buzzing with sound doctrine. This book is short, readable and highly recommended. (The Monthly Record ~ Magazine of the Free Church of Scotland)
I love this new book by John Piper. I don't know of any other brief book on this subject that so manifestly takes us down into the Scriptures and then so wonderfully lifts us up to see the glory of God. Many people will be encouraged, and not a few will have their faith jolted in the best way possible. (Kevin DeYoung ~ Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan)
Nothing has changed my perspective and made more sense of God, life, and the world than the doctrines of grace. John Piper makes a complex theology understandable. Five Points will assist you to see how big and good our gracious God actually is. (Darrin Patrick ~ Lead Pastor, The Journey, St. Louis, Missouri)
Imagine being able to chat over a meal with John Piper about the five points of Calvinism. That's pretty much what you get in this book: a clear statement of these life-changing truths delivered with warm pastoral sensitivity in a conversational style. You won't find yourself being browbeaten. Instead, you'll find yourself invited to marvel at God's wonderful grace. The only thing missing is the meal.
(Tim Chester ~ Pastor of Grace Church, Boroughbridge, Yorkshire)
