Sproul addresses in his most influential little book, Chosen by God. Now I rejoiced in a gracious Savior who alone was immortal, invisible, the only wise God.

Chosen By God

This book logically lays out reformed theology in beautiful simplicity while addressing the popular oppositions and resolving them with the truth of God’s word. It is our duty to seek the correct view of predestination, lest we be guilty of distorting or ignoring the Word of God.

Salvation is all from God thru Jesus Christ. My friends and I had different views of predestination, and each one kept pushing for his own view. But the problem is: At 25 years old, this book still delivers a clear and helpful presentation of the Reformed r.c.sptoul on predestination.


There is no doubting what the Lord explicitly teaches through the Holy Scriptures and Sproul has skillfully helped bring this to light while also chosej many objections and questions bg are raised in thinking through this, at times, difficult doctrine of election.

Sproul is a man of great intelligence who can articulate deep theological truths in simple, easy-to-understand terms. Sproul has an easily identifiable reading style with his short, pithy sentences.

It’s lengthy enough to give this issue a serious discussion and brief enough not to scare away the average student of the Bible. We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty; we love him because he first loved us. It’s not without its flaws of course: To answer this paradox, he takes us to the writings of Jonathan Edwards, who notes that for a choice to take place, there must first be a desire to ggod.

An understanding of God’s utter holiness, man’s total depravity, and God’s grace, choosen, and mercy are pivotal in apprehending what God has done through Christ for His beloved Church. I admit it, this book convinced me.

In this updated and expanded edition of Chosen by GodSproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesn’t create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, hy paints a portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans.

What a topic after a good meal! Amazon Web Services Goodreads Shopbop. I am not asking whether we love this God and this Christ perfectly; I am asking whether we love this God and this Christ at all.


I strongly recommend choden you read Chosen by God with an open Bible and an open mind if your doctrinal stance is represented by any or all of the following statements: Why else would it be that all humans are undeniably evil at least to some extent? Assurance can be temporarily diminished, as David after adultery and Peter after denying Christ.

For example, he does admit that Hebrews 6: Sproul — was founder of Ligonier Ministries, an international Christian discipleship organization located near Orlando, Fla.

Chosen By God: Know God’s Perfect Plan for His Glory and His Children by R.C. Sproul

I did go to sleep several nights while reading this book with smoke coming out of my ears!! It along with scripture, some great sermons, and the Holy Spirit, of course completely changed the way I think about God, not only in salvation, but in all things.

To say that God is completely sovereign in cosen salvation of individuals seems to offend them, stepping on the toes of their precious free will. I read this because I’ve listened to Sproul’s Renewing Your Mind podcast for years, and it’s informed my thinking on salvation.
