We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty. We love him because he first loved us.
Predestination, says R. C. Sproul, isnt just for Calvinists. It is for all biblical Christians. In this updated and expanded edition of Chosen by God, Sproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesnt create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints the portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans. There is mystery in Gods ways, but not contradiction.

The proof texts go from bad to worse, culminating in the "killer text", Romans 9. Unfortunately, as the context makes clear, Paul isn't even talking about salvation in the passage. He's talking about our position in this world, not the next. Israel was chosen - but surely even Sproul will agree that not every Israelite was saved? To update the rhetorical question Paul is asking, why was I born in the US to a Christian family, while someone else was born in India to a Hindu family? Paul answers, because so God decided. But does that mean that I will certainly be saved, or that the Indian will be certainly lost? Obvously, no. Sproul's key passage is irrelevant to his argument.
Surely, there must be better arguments for Calvinism than this book. I highly recommend for a Catholic view of the question Fr. William Most's book "Grace, Predestination, and the Salvific Will of God." I especially recommend it to those who found this weak book so convincing.
I was wrong about Calvinism. This book opened my eyes to my total inability and depravity--but also to God's wondrous GRACE! The Lord God Almighty is a Sovereign GOD who reigns over his creation; man will not and cannot thwart his perfect eternal plans.
If you've ever wondered about Biblical predestination then I strongly encourage your reading this book. The LORD has gifted Sproul with the ability to make complex topics easy to apprehend.
One thing I really like about Sproul's style is that he accurately represents the opposing view's position. I *used* to be an Arminian, and I always hated it when Calvinists misrepresented my views. We all hate it when people misrepresent our position then knock it down (i.e., the "strawman"). I really respected Sproul for accurately stating the Arminian view. It enabled me to see into his cogent arguments for 5-point Calvinism.
To conclude: I HIGHLY recommend this book. Afterwards, I believe you'll have a refreshing and awesome look at the GRACE of GOD! This book was a principle instrument in my becoming a Calvinist. If you're an Arminian then prepare for a challenging polemic for Calvinism. If you're a Calvinist, prepare for a God-exalting treatise concerning His sovereign election of His people.
