Summary

In Chosen by God, Sproul shows that the doctrine of predestination doesn't create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints a portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans. We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty; we love him because he first loved us. There is mystery in God's ways, but not contradiction.

Dr. Sproul shows how election is entirely compatible with human freedom, dignity, and responsibility.

Chosen by God

As a Minister for 40yrs I have held the opposite view. However, this teaching and other teaching by RC has completely changed my viewpoint. In doing so I am rejoicing even more in my salvation. I'm still getting to grips but I recommend the book wholeheartedly.

Thanks so much JC.

This regards the Audible Version

This does not appear to actually be a reading of the book. Rather it appears to be a series of lectures on the same topics. The book has 9 chapters, the audible version has 6. They do not conform to the text of the book.

This isn't the whole book.

I chose this Audible over the print version for a group study. I'm done with the Audible and the book has four more chapters. this Audible is just over half of the book.

This is a seminar

What disappointed you about Chosen by God?

Description says unabridged but it is not read according to the book. It is a seminar. I purchased for my son so he could keep up with the reading when he didn't have his book at hand. However it did not go along with the book and so it was not very helpful.

Excellent Breakdown of Doctrine of Election

I am a longtime Methodist and I have long looked at the doctrine of Election with a different set of glasses from Mr. Sproul. However, his presentation and documentation of the subject have given me reason to reevaluate my position!

I thought I had this all figured out. I guess I don't!!!

not the book

This audio recording is not the unabridged book by the same title. It is a lecture series on the subject.

Predestined to be Chosen by God

In this short ideas packed and Biblically sound set of lectures, R.C. Spooul patiently describes what predestination, as well as election, mean for the Christian and how these features of our faith provide assurance and hope as we live our lives and look forward to everlasting salvation.

Not the book....It is a seminar taught by Dr. Sproul

This edition is not the book, “Chosen by God.” Instead, this is a lecture, delivered by Dr. Sproul, given before a live audience.
