Whatever your view on God’s sovereignty, “Reprobation and God’s Sovereignty” by Peter Sammons is a very detailed, challenging, and thought-provoking read on the subject. Just under 300 pages, many topics are addressed, including:
– 3 categories of God’s authority addressed in the Bible.
– Whether “election” in Romans 9 applies to nations or individuals.
– The inability of humans to influence God’s decisions on predestination.
– Different classifications and definitions of reprobation.
– 3 ways election is defined in the Bible.
– What a hyper-Calvinist believes.
– What is fatalism.
– Humans being accountable to God for their actions.
Here’s some thoughts about the title:
– Seems to be fair on the differing viewpoints on the topic.
– A challenging and comprehensive read.
– Very helpful appendix and scripture reference.
– Excellent read for a college-level course.
– Authors do a good job of stating why they have a certain viewpoint about a particular title.
Overall, a very good read and recommended. I was given a review copy by Kregel Academic in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
