THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GRACE

Arthur C. Custance


ABSTRACT

       In this study ELECTION and PREDESTINATION are not cold, austere doctrines but the vibrant heart of the Gospel.
     It is a thorough, and fair, study — beginning with a historical review of the Five Points as discussed and interpreted down through the centuries.
    It is a unique study — dealing with the implications of the doctrine, taking it out of the intellectual and philosophical realm into the practicality of daily life. There is refreshing insight into the knotty problems of God's sovereignty and man's free will, the problem of punishment and rewards, the necessity of evangelism, among other things.
     It is a comprehensive study — for included is a discussion of the future of the non-elect, a subject fraught with more emotion than light. The pros and cons of alternative views are presented.
