I don't give a lot of 5 stars but this has been one of the best books I've ever read.
Captivated by his thorough exegesis, taking all hard questions head on, this book was over too soon. Through my experience(s) and bible studies I was already pretty strong in the Augustinian-Calvinistic view of grace, salvation, predestination and such themes and this book strengthend it but it a way that made me more humble as I saw the greatness of God and his grace.
THe strength of this book is one receives a fresh view of grace that makes you love God more and that is what really good theology does!
The hard part of this book is double predestination. It is a hard doctrine and one needs to take time to really think it through.
I dont read many books a second time but I have a feeling this one will be read several times.
Thank you John Piper
Two things I found particularly impressive about the book:
1. Piper engages a wide variety of "Arminian" interpretations of the passage, many of which immediately fall apart when the reader takes a moment to think about how they would fit into Paul's overall argument, but he (Piper) does so without the rancor and pettiness that so often characterizes those types of discussions.
2. Although reformed, "Calvinist" doctrines are often viewed as serious and sometimes depressing philosophical and Biblical arguments, Piper expounds Paul's argument in a way that is markedly uplifting and God-glorifying.
All in all, this is perhaps the best book of Biblical exposition of a passage that I have ever read. I would highly recommend it to intelligent readers of any theological leaning.
