    4.5 Stars!

    **** For over two decades, RC Sproul has renewed his readers' and listeners' minds through his radio program, teaching tapes, and books. His latest book weaves together several of his finest lessons in a compact, highly readable form that explains several difficult doctrines of the Reformed branch of Christianity. If you approach this book with a firmly Pelagian mindset, be warned, there is a good chance that by the end you will be converted to St. Augustine's position on the subjects covered in Calvin's TULIP. Dr. Spoul's logic is easy to follow, though it never talks down to the reader. Throughout, he continually affirms the sovereignity of God, whether in discussing the five solas, predestination, or clearing up the thorny question of Hebrews, chapter six verse six. If all educational materials were this readable, we might all be a bit smarter. ****
