Chosen But Free: A Balanced View of God's Sovereignty and Free Will (Third Edition)

Calculated at checkout

Product Description

In recent years the age-old controversy between free will and predestination has intensified. Does God alone decide who will be saved and who will not? Or does He give us the freedom to choose? Polarized beliefs have divided churches and even families, while many observers wonder, "Does it really make any difference?" Dr. Norman Geisler answers with a resounding yes. But rather than pitting one strong perspective against another, he presents a powerful but sensibly moderate view. Using biblically sound arguments, Dr. Geisler affirms both the sovereignty and foreknowledge of God and the human responsibility to receive or reject Him.

This third edition emphasizes why this debate matters in our lives and adds additional appendices for further research.
