Randy Alcorn addresses the difficult question of is it possible to reconcile God's sovereignty with man's freedom to choose. In this thorough discussion of this topic, the author presents both sides, many times finding more common ground than differences. The use of diagrams and charts helped to illustrate the discussion and see the differences that may exist.
The study of this topic is designed by the author for the following reasons:
1 - To develop a deeper appreciation for God and his Word which reveals him to use
2 - To help us mirror Christ's humility
3 - To embrace all of God's inspired Word, not just parts of it
4 - To foster unity in the body of Christ
5 - To avoid fatalism and crushing guilt
6 - To prevent us from becoming trivial people in a shallow age
This book would be for those who are serious about this topic and want to see both sides presently fairly. There are questions in the back of the book for a small group study.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
