Overview

The doctrine of predestination—as controversial as it is—has received comparatively little thoughtful attention, and is rarely understood even in Reformed circles. It is a doctrine, however, contained in the creeds of confessions of most evangelical churches, and Christians would do well to explore it more thoughtfully.

The tendency of our enlightened age is to look upon Calvinism as outdated and obsolete. Because of this contemporary attitude toward Calvinism, and because of the general lack of thoughtful and well-reasoned writing on Reformed doctrines, The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination is of great importance. In this volume, Boettner does not aim to set forth a new system of theological thought, but rather gives a re-statement of Reformed theology. He affirms Calvinism as both the teaching of the Bible and as an important part of the church’s history.

Not only a clear and cogent presentation of the Reformed doctrine of predestination but of all the great distinctive doctrines of the Reformed faith. . . . The practical importance of Calvinism is stressed. The chapter on Calvinism in history will prove illuminating to many.
