Item description for Chosen But Free by Norman L. Geisler...

Striking a Balance on Divine Election
For too long there has only been argument. Divine election, however, is not just a theological debate without implications or answers. Instead, according to Dr. Geisler, it is a foundational tenet of faith that affects how you view ministry, pursue the unsaved, pray, and even how you understand the very nature of God himself.
At the heart of his new book, Chosen But Free, Dr. Geisler explores both the dangers implicit in ascribing to extreme views on either side of the doctrinal coin as well as the blessings and freedoms tacit to a unified understanding of this theological question. He explores the convictions of extreme Calvinism and extreme Arminianism and suggests contradictions and biblically unfounded ideas that each of the sides must hold in order to justify their views.
He then argues for a moderate position to the theological question, affirming the sovereignty of God and His foreknowledge along with the human responsibility to choose or reject God offer of salvation. This balance point champions the key points of your ministry including:
Consistently taking responsibility for our actions and confessing our sins before God.
Actively taking God's word to the lost in order to expand the kingdom of God.
Joyfully worshipping God as perfect, good, true, and ever-loving.
Thankfully celebrating the assurance of salvation through faith in Jesus.
For too long the common belief has been held that God's sovereignty and human free will were mutually exclusive. By challenging your preconceived notions on divine election, you can move to a fuller understanding of God's plan for His people and be touched by the response to His offering of love and grace.
Ideal for individual use or a challenging study with church leaders or other pastors, Chosen But Free is another compelling and important book from this widely respected theologian and pastor. Dr. Geisler has written what will become the definitive work on divine election for you as a scholar, theologian, or pastor seeking reconciliation of this debate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chosen But Free?

Insightful  Jan 20, 2007
A very well written book on a very sensitive issue in theology. Geisler touches the nerve of what separates many believers, but truhtfully exposes how both extremes are not only unbiblical but unrational. This is a great tool for anyone searching for some light to shed on the topic of pre-destination and freewill.
I'm pleased.  Jan 11, 2007
As a college student with no formal theoligical training, this is a great book for me.

This book explains everything I've wanted to tell my Presbyterian friends but didn't have the right words for.

The logic is water tight and scripturally supported.
A Great Help to Those Who have Been Wrestling with Calvinism  Dec 31, 2006
If you have been wrestling with the Bible's teaching on predestination and man's free will, I strongly suggest you read this book. It will be very helpful to you. Geisler does an excellent job comparing the teachings of Calvinism with the Bible and clearly demonstrates that there are many problems with Calvinism. But he doesn't stop there, he shows that there are problems with the Arminian views as well. This book presents a Biblically sound alternative to both extremes.
"A Balanced View of Divine Election?"  Jun 15, 2006
OK, I'm sort of stuck between a rock and a hard spot with this one. On one hand, I think that Dr. Geisler has misrepresented the average Calvinist. On the other hand, I think that his own system, i.e., moderate Calvinism, is right on. Too bad he didn't just write a book expounding his own position and leave out the attacks against the other camps . . . the attacks could have been a separate book. In short, however, I think Geisler's position represents far more Calvinists than do the extreme Calvinists. Often people who claim to be "Calvinists" are really moderate Calvinists, they just don't know it, but when they are presented the facts, they often identify more with moderate Calvinism.
A++++  May 3, 2006
A breath of fresh air for those who have been bombarded by the false gospel of hyper Calvinism.
