Couenhoven reminds us why predestination is important: not only is it part of the New Testament and the Christian tradition, but it speaks to all who believe and hope that God is in charge. Like Christ's Cross and Resurrection, the doctrine of predestination insists that God's grace is not defeated by sin and death. This is good news indeed-despite the difficulty in pinning down precisely how predestination should be defined! We are in Couenhoven's debt for this wonderfully lucid and engaging introduction to a crucial aspect of the Gospel. * MATTHEW LEVERING, MUNDELEIN SEMINARY, USA *
Jesse Couenhoven has written a book that really is an illuminating guide for those perplexed by the apparently interminable debate about divine predestination and human freedom. He offers deft and agile commentary on major thinkers in the Christian tradition, and provides a thoughtful (and plausible) constructive account of his own at the end of the book. This is a clear, concise, and rewarding study that should be immediately placed in the hands of all those who doubted something helpful could still be written on this vital theological topic. * Oliver D.
