Item description for What's So Great About the Doctrines of Grace? by Richard D. Phillips...
Overview In What's So Great about the Doctrines of Grace?, the Rev. Richard D. "Rick" Phillips shows that "the doctrines of grace," those theological tenets more popularly known as "the five points of Calvinism," are comforting, faith-strengthening, and humbling teachings. In six short chapters, Rev. Phillips demonstrates conclusively from Scripture that this view of salvation exalts God and makes plain His great love for man, which drove Him to do all that was necessary to redeem a people for Himself.
Publishers Description In the eyes of many Christians, the doctrines of grace, also known as the five points of Calvinism, are tedious tenets that offer no practical benefit for ordinary believers. But as the Rev. Richard D. Phillips affirms, To love the doctrines of grace is to love God as He has revealed Himself in His Word. In this book, Phillips both explains the doctrines of Grace through the exposition of Scripture and helps believers feel the power of these magnificent truths. He argues that these doctrines are wonderful in that they reveal the sovereign, mighty and effectual grace of God, shaping Christians' attitudes toward God, themselves, the present life and the life to come.

A Great Primer on Calvinism! Aug 22, 2008
If you're a non-Calvinist and wish to understand how a well-bred Calvinist argues the five-points of Calvinism, that is, the Doctrines of Grace, then Richard D. Phillips What's So Great About the Doctrines of Grace? is a great place to start. And if you're a Calvinist but need to get a good grip on the Doctrines of Grace, I recommend the same.
In 97 pages, Phillips sets forth compelling arguments for why he thinks the Doctrines of Grace, the five-points of Calvinism, are so great. In the Preface Phillips writes:
"But I especially love these doctrines because of their marvelous theme: the sovereign grace of God for unworthy sinners. For even greater than their enlightening effect on the mind, the doctrines of God are utterly transforming to the believing heart. To love the doctrines of grace is to love God as He has revealed Himself in His Word."(p. xi)
Even I found the book compelling and engaging on the TULIP: Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints.
