Christensen explains two views that acknowledge God’s sovereignty and its relation to human responsibility: compatibilism and libertarianism. Providing cogent, biblical answers, Christensen argues for compatibilism and shows how it makes sense of evil, suffering, prayer, evangelism, and sanctification. You will gain a deeper understanding of both arguments, as well as a greater appreciation for the significant role that choices play in God’s work.

    While this did take me almost an entire year to finish the book that speaks more against me than the book. This book does a fantastic job of covering such a complicated subject. My book has more stuff underlined than not. I would have to put it down to think on what I read for a couple pages and that's really a testament to the author. This is the primary book I would recommend on the subject and covers it extremely well. Just when I think the book should be over, the next chapter or section would cover some other part of the topic I hadn't considered before. Another great point is that Christensen presents the arguments from the other side in a fair and even tone. He doesn't resort to ad hominem attacks. It was a joy to read this book and the only frustration was with myself. Take it slow and digest it at your own pace. Final Grade - A+
