**** 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. ****

This was a tough book! Nine times out of ten what he was saying went in one ear and out the other. He would take thirty words and a mile long sentence to get across something that only takes a few words. For example, It would appear to be lengthy and intellectual so that the average young lad would scratch his head while reading it and saying I'm not quite sure what he is saying when in reality it's quite simple that even Sherlock Holmes finds it unchallenging and falls asleep because it just goes on and on and on and on kind of like this sentence is and requires you to reread it in order to get across the message because despite being simple it's wordy and confusing and again goes on and on like this forever long run on sentence except his were better thought out and not run ons that just keep going and going and going and going and so forth I mean seriously how long can this keep going? When all that needed to be said was, it's boring. See what I did there? I didn't finish the book. He had sone good points but the beating around the bush drove me crazy. Just say what you mean to say!!!! Not only that but it took me 100 pages to figure out where he stands in regards to Catholics. And I'm still not quite sure. All joking aside, he had some good points. He brought up things I've never heard before and gave me some food for thought. I recieved the book in an exchange for an honest review.
