Calvin's Dilemma: God's Sovereignty vs. Man's Free Will
Calvin's Dilemma is available for Kindle at Amazon.com.
Drawn from Dave Hunt’s masterful work on Calvinism, this long-awaited installment in the “easier-to-read” paperback series provides an invaluable and highly accessible examination of one of the most hotly debated topics among evangelicals today. The apparent tension between God’s sovereignty and man’s free will has been a point of study and discussion—and, sadly, of contention—among sincere Christians for centuries. Some have taken the approach of C. I. Scofield, that these are two truths that must both be accepted but that cannot be reconciled. “Both are wholly true, but the connecting and reconciling truth has not been revealed.” R. A. Torrey agreed that we should not “try to explain away the clear teaching of the Word of God as to the sovereignty of God [and] the freedom of the human will....” Unfortunately, neither Calvin nor many of his followers today have been willing to accept both sides of this biblical teaching. The result has been devastating in its consequences for the gospel: that man can only reject Christ; he cannot accept and believe in Him unless he is “sovereignly regenerated” by God. Calvinism refuses to accept what so many great evangelists have recognized is vital. In Calvin’s Dilemma, Dave Hunt skillfully demonstrates the essential balance that is missing—thus bridging the divide biblically.
