Chosen in Christ: Revisiting the Contours of Predestination PBBy: Cornelius P. Venema
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
Cornel Venema revisits the important doctrine of predestination to re-familiarize the church with truths about God's sovereignty in salvation, and also engages a host of historic and contemporary challenges to the doctrine. All subjects are addressed from exegetical, historical, contemporary, and pastoral vantage points.
Cornelius P. Venema is President and Professor of Doctrinal Studies at Mid–America Reformed Seminary, Dyer, Indiana. He is also co–editor and frequent contributor to The Outlook and the Mid–America Journal of Theology.
… this book brings abundant exegesis and theological argument to bear on a controversial but wonderful truth. I’m delighted to commend such a learned and helpful work.
Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California
This is an important book for the lucid and instructive treatment of predestination it provides. Composed of in–depth biblical, historical, and theological discussions with some concluding pastoral reflections, it will greatly benefit all who are interested in this doctrine and the crucial issues involved—issues, the author shows convincingly, that concern nothing less than the heart of the gospel.
Richard Gaffin, Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
This is a magnificent discussion of predestination and election. I can think of no better resource, for not only does it address the usual questions surrounding this difficult but vital topic but it does so with close attention to the Biblical text and in dialogue with the history of thought from Augustine to the present day.
