The Cause of God and Truth Jul 15, 2007
This book was either a new book or well taken care of. I am perfectly satisfied.
An Excellent Defense of the Reformed Faith Aug 20, 2006
John Gill was a Reformed Baptist, and in The Cause of God and Truth, he deals especially with those texts which some raise in opposition to Reformed doctrine. Gill carefully shows the biblical basis for the Reformed view of those texts in question. This book is an excellent reference resource due to the careful, thorough indexing of all Scripture references in the volume.
Cause of God and Truth By John Gill Feb 24, 2006
One of the best reference books supporting the Doctrines of Grace (Calvinism) in this millenium. It is an essential for witnessing to those pesky Arminians about the True, Living and Sovereign God of all things. This book has all kinds of ways to cross-reference Scriptures with the subjects and vice-versa. It is the most helpful tool I have found on the Doctrines of Grace. It even has references to the early church writers and their ideas on absolute predestination,unconditional election, peculiar redemption,original sin,efficacius grace, etc. A fine buy for all of its help. Don't be caught without it. Try and find the Primitive Baptist edition as the print is larger than The Sovereign Grace Publisher edition. Both are hardbacks. There is a paperback edition by GO Publcations and Mr. Ella which is a biography even though it bears the name of "The Cause of God and Truth". I own the PBL and SGP editions and often give loved ones this book for very special occasions. Elder Bradley R. Guildner
A Hard-Shell Calvinist Classic Feb 9, 2003
Dr. John Gill was an ultra-strict Calvinist pastor in England. This book is his systematic dismantling of Arminian theology, topic by topic, and text by text. No stone is left unturned. This really is the book to own if you would like to read an exhaustive rebuttal by a Calvinist theologian against Arminianism. I would warn you against the very-small print. This edition has not been re-formatted, but rather I guess it must be a fresh reprint of an old version. Your mind may enjoy thinking about the theology, but your eyes will go buggy!
Second, Gill habitually resorts to a weakness among many theologians -- he re-interprets the texts in terms of his presuppositions, rather than re-evaluating a system in light of the text. There were numerous times when Gill's argumentation about an "Arminian" verse amounted to, "Well, we _already know_ that God can't/doesn't/won't, so therefore..." and then Gill devises some implausible interpretations. This illustrates a chronic danger in systematic theology -- it aims at air-tight logic, but stumbles over (or ignores) specific verses that just won't quite bend to fit into a Procrustean bed.
