What is Dr Geisler warning the Christian community about in this book? . . . A new cult? Secularism? False prophecy scenarios? No -- Dr Geisler is sounding the alarm about a system of beliefs commonly called "Calvinism". He insists this belief system is "theologically inconsistent, philosophically insufficient, and morally repugnant". The book is written as a reply to Dr Geisler, but it is much more: it is a defence of the very principles upon which the Protestant Refor-mation was founded. Indeed, it is a defence of the very gospel itself! In a style that both scholars and layman can appreciate, James White masterfully counters the evidence against so-called "extreme Calvinism", defines what the Reformed Faith actually is, and concludes that the gospel preached by the Reformers is the very one taught in the pages of Scripture.… (més)

When I read Geisler's Chosen but Free, I was astonished. My wife actually asked me to stop reading it, since it was making me angry. And it was making me angry because we had such a solid and respected Christian brother jumping into a debate that he didn't even understand. It was clear from the first chapter that he didn't really know what Calvinism was teaching, and yet he was attacking it.

White's response is wonderfully thorough and carefully documented. White examines Geisler's beliefs, his sources, and his wording, not to tear down Geisler, but to try to present a fair and Bible-based presentation of Calvinism, something Geisler did not do.

Geisler wrote a bad book, but I wouldn't tell people not to read it. Read it! Read it, and then take a look at what White says. I think more Calvinists will be the result.

If you have not read Geisler's book, I think this one will still be understandable, though there are other works on Reformed Theology that may be a better start.

Just please don't fall into the trap that Geisler did -- letting your traditions dictate how you read the Bible, and therefore end up twisting Scripture and other sources alike (as well as misrepresenting your opposition) just to defend it. ( )

The Potter’s Freedom is a potent, yet irenic, attack on man-centered soteriology. Written on a non-technical level, TPF systematically responds to the arguments set forth by Geisler against historic Calvinistic theology.

A response to Norman Geisler's "Chosen But Free".

Read this first, rather than Debating Calvinism. If you get a chance, read Geisler's book first, then this work makes a whole lot of sense. But, even if you read this by itself, it is well worth it. ( )
