I love this book! This is a book you read over and over again. (I'm on my 4th) Willing to Believe is an excellent resource for deeper personal study on this topic. RC goes back into history and reveals how this doctrine was contversial in the early church days, as it is still today. He explains in detail the differences from Peliagius & Augustine. The works of Luther, Calvin & Edwards. This book is not for the mushy reader, it is deep with theogical concepts that are vital to our spiritual health. It makes you think and ponder about the greatness of our God, leaving you with a great sense of security of God Sovereinty and how it relates to man. It is theolgoy in its finest in 204 pages! It will leave you as it has for me, craving for more! Thank you Dr. Rc for you deep committment and challenge to all of us to pursue our understanding of what God has said and what He expects from us all.
