Read full description of the books:This is THE book to read on Calvinism. The title leads you to believe it is about predestination alone, but Boettner demonstrates that the Calvinistic system is a whole--predestination necessarily leads to "TULIP".
He uses the acronym, though modifies it somewhat into clearer terminology, that perhaps isn't quite so provocative. The book is structured largely around TULIP, followed by rebuttals of common arguments by opponents.
There is also a section showing the way Calvinism has transformed culture. He argues, as others have before and after, that it is Calvinism that has brought the development and advancement of the West in ways that even many critics of Calvin acknowledge. We've largely lost, or abandoned this position in our own day, but the history is there for us all to discover if we're open to the truth.
The conclusion of the book is a mini biography of Calvin which has some helpful material, even for those that have read other such mini bios. This is a great and useful book. Boettner demolishes the Arminian position.
Read information about the authorLoraine Boettner (1901-1990) was a Reformed Theologian, born on a farm in Linden, Missouri. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from Tarkio College in 1925, he attended Princeton Theological Seminary where he studied Systematic Theology under Dr. Casper W. Hodge and received his Th.B. (1928) and Th.M. (1929). He taught Bible for eight years in Pikeville College, Kentucky. In 1933 he received the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity from Tarkio College, and in 1957 the degree of Doctor of Literature. He was a member of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
From 1958 until his death in 1990, Dr. Boettner lived a quite life in Rock Port, Missouri. For the remaining 32 years of his life, he generously sold his books at cost to any who wrote to ask for them. In doing so, Boettner made good conservative theology readily available at a time when such material was often difficult to come by. Through his writings, he served to popularize the Reformed faith and influenced literally tens of thousands of men and women around the world.
