Here is a clear scriptural case for the classic (and sometimes controversial) Christian doctrine of predestination. Through this view of a truly sovereign God, readers will see how sinfulness prevents man from choosing God on his own; instead, God must change people's hearts.

    Chosen By God: Know God's Perfect Plan for His Glory and His Children Reviews

  • Sarah

    With nearly 200,000 copies sold in its 25 years, Chosen by God by Dr. R. C. Sproul is a contemporary classic on predestination, a doctrine that isn't just for Calvinists, says Sproul. It is a doctrine...

    There are a few questions you must settle in your mind to determine whether what is written in this book is true.1. Is God all powerful, all knowing, and does He have the right to execute His Will at ...

  • Angelyn Vaughan

    This is one of the few truly life-altering books I've ever read. It (along with scripture, some great sermons, and the Holy Spirit, of course) completely changed the way I think about God, not only in...

  • Matt Carpenter

    This book was a life-changer. It was the book that slammed the door on my pretentions that men chose God, rather than Him choosing us. It explains the sovereignty of God in salvation better than any b...

  • Andrew Fendrich

    A staple of reformed theology. A quick and easy survey not only of predestination but of the doctrines of grace. R.C. Sproul is a man of great intelligence who can articulate deep theological truths i...
