Peterson, Robert A.
Election and Free Will helps Christians who believe in a Reformed view of predestination to better understand their faith. Robert A. Peterson traces Scripture's teaching on election through the Bible and explains the doctrine of free will. He also tackles objections to predestination and concludes with applications of this neglected biblical teaching.
The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability—a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.
Robert A. Peterson (MDiv, Biblical Theological Seminary; PhD, Drew University) was professor of systematic theology at Covenant Seminary for more than twenty-five years. He has served seven churches as an interim pastor and is the author of a number of books.
"What a wonderful book! Most discussions of the doctrine of election and free will have become a 'take-no-prisoners' kind of theological warfare. Robert Peterson’s clear and irenic presentation never compromises the truth, but it does open the door for God’s people, who sometimes disagree about important truths, to talk." — Steve Brown
