About Determined To Believe?: The Sovereignty Of

Product Description Determined to Believe? is written for those who are interested in or even troubled by questions about God's sovereignty and human freedom and responsibility. John Lennox writes in the spirit of helping people to come to grips with the biblical treatment of this issue for themselves. In this comprehensive review of the topic of theological determinism, Lennox seeks firstly to define the problem, looking at the concepts of freedom, the different kinds of determinism, and the moral problems these pose. He then equips the reader with biblical teaching on the topic and explores the spectrum of theological opinion on it. Following this, Lennox delves deeper into the Gospels and then investigates what we can learn regarding determinism and responsibility from Paul's discussion in Romans on God's dealings with Israel. Finally Lennox tackles the issue of Christian assurance. This nuanced and detailed study challenges some of the widely held assumptions in the area of theological determinism and brings a fresh perspective to the debate. Review Lennox is no fool. Nor does he rush in, though he bravely explores ground where angels may fear to tread. And the overall debate about freedom is an 'argument for the sake of heaven' that no Christian should duck -- because it bears on our view of the character of God, of human dignity, of moral responsibility, and therefore on our mission and public witness. Gracious, patient, tenacious, persistently biblical, and eschewing argument by labels, Lennox is a model of how to handle issues that are divisive but important. It is up to each of us to read, study, think, pray, and decide for ourselves. The heart, face, and voice of our faith are all at stake in the answers we give. ( Os Guinness, author of Impossible People) Professor Lennox raises serious biblical, theological, and philosophical questions about theological determinism -- the belief that God has foreordained and rendered certain all that happens including who will be saved and who will not be saved. Anyone curious about this belief must read Determined to Believe? ( Roger E. Olson, Foy Valentine Professor of Christian Theology and Ethics, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University) With grace, humility, wisdom, and boldness, John Lennox offers a readable, biblically-informed guide that tackles important questions about freedom and fatalism, salvation and sovereignty, faith and foreordination, regeneration and reprobation. This book will be a help for those perplexed by -- and even pressured into accepting -- a theological system that strikes them as undermining genuine moral responsibility and calling into question the assurance of salvation. ( Paul Copan, Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University and author of An Introduction to Biblical Ethics and A Little Book for New Philosophers) John Lennox is widely recognized as one of the top Christian intellectuals of our time. Yet he is also rightly admired for his uncanny ability to get right down to the basic issues in a discussion and to write about them with a simple clarity that still exemplifies depth and range of treatment. And, as one would expect, Determined to Believe? is a model of these virtues. This is no ordinary rehash of old debates about Calvinism vs. Arminianism, God's sovereignty vs. free will and moral responsibility, and so on. In fact, the real brilliance of the book lies in Lennox's insistence that we set aside old labels and try a fresh approach with new eyes to the topics related to the acceptance or non-acceptance of theological determinism. As a result, this is a treasure trove of clear, easy to understand biblical exegesis, helpful definitions of key terms like foreknowledge and predestine, and coverage of theological determinism as it relates to the human condition, the nation of Israel and the hardening of Pharaoh's heart, and the assurance a believer may rightly claim rega
