Item description for T.u.l.i.p.: The Five Disputed Points of Calvinism by Ben Lacy Rose...
Overview Never before have the five disputed doctrines of Calvinism -- Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and the Perseverance of the Saints -- been presented in such an attractive and winsome manner. T.U.L.I.P. is written in clear language that persons in the pews can understand. For that reason, this book is being embraced by a broad spectrum of Christians who follow the Reformed tradition and is becoming recognized as an outstanding summation of the complex principles of Calvinism -- in a day when few Christians comprehend the theological underpinnings of the faith that they claim. Includes study questions.

Book Review Sep 28, 2008
I am presently doing a study on how the Hyper-Calvinists/Ultra Calvinists believe for a class I teach. This book was informative on the five points of Calvinism.
A TULIP BY ANOTHER NAME Sep 19, 2000
Most people would associate a tulip as being a bulb that grows erect with showy cup-shaped flowers. John Calvin's tulip is certainly not the flower just described but an acronym describing five disputed points of his doctrine. TOTAL depravity, UNCONDITIONAL election, LIMITED atonement, IRRESISTIBLE grace and PERSEVERANCE of the saints are the cornerstone foundations upon which those of the Reformed protestant faith stand. It is also the least desirable topic to preach let alone understand in its minute details. Who wants to bore their congregation into sleep by preaching Calvinist doctrine?
Ben Rose remedies the situation by present us with a book on how to preach and study Calvin's five points. He takes each point and gives a definition of the doctrine, supplies the biblical support for it , explains the doctrine's function in our lives and at the end leaves us questions for reflection, discussion and appreciation for the particular point studied.
As one who is not of the Reformed tradition, I thoroughly enjoyed the book's simplicity, clarity on each point and its brevity. I appreciated Rose's daring attempt to take a complex doctrine and make it accessible and understandable to the congregants. He also emphasizes the need for doctrinal preaching and how it can be done without confusing the laity. This book is great for doctrinal studies, a resource for preaching and a refresher on Calvin's disputed points.
