If salvation makes the most sense from the perspective of utter ruin, then what makes the doctrine of election so controversial? According to Mackintosh, the disagreement over election—the cause of church splits and religious wars—lies not in the doctrine itself, but in the way the doctrine is applied. Too often, the church preaches the doctrine without preaching the person of Christ, thereby preaching discouragement and despair instead of hope and grace. In Glad Tidings, Mackintosh shows how the doctrine of election can be applied instead of pandered, and preached instead of provoked. The words of reconciliation in Glad Tidings speak profoundly to contemporary reiterations of the debate over election.

Praise for the Print Edition

Man’s complete ruin in sin, and God’s perfect remedy in Christ, are fully, clearly, and often strikingly presented [in Mackintosh’s writings].

—Andrew Miller, a leader of the Plymouth Brethren movement
