Item Description...
Focusing on biblical, theological, and historical issues, this point-counterpoint discussion examines common beliefs concerning the divisive topic of spiritual election---and evaluates the faithfulness of each to Scripture. Jack Cottrell presents the Arminian position; Bruce Ware, the Reformed; Robert Reymond, the supralapsarian; Thomas Talbot, the inclusive; and Clark Pinnock, the "open" approach. 352 pages, softcover from Broadman & Holman.

Publishers Description
"Perspectives on Election "presents in counterpoint form five basic common beliefs on the doctrine of spiritual election (for example, predestination) that have developed over the course of church history with a view toward determining which is most faithful to Scripture. Each chapter is written by a prominent person within each tradition, and each writer has the opportunity to respond to each differing view.Despite the focus upon a topic that divides many people, editor Chad Brand says, "The goal of this book is to add clarity to the discussion and to further the discussion, insofar as it is possible, in an amiable manner."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Balanced Debate Over A Hotly Debated Topic  Jan 20, 2007
I want to commend the publishers of PERSPECTIVES ON ELECTION: FIVE VIEWS. They allowed each viewpoint equal amount of pages to present their arguments for their respected position and then allowed a brief response by each of the other authors on the view at hand. This made for quick reading and (as one reviewer before me put it) this allowed for the reader to wrestle with the doctrine of election themself.

The doctrine of election debate is hardly new. It has been wagging for nearly 1000 years in the Church but sadly the debate is often full of rage and not godly love and respect. Not so in this book. While none of the authors completely close the argument, they do a good job of helping the reader see the various positions.

I give this book a five star rating and hope that more Arminian-Calvinist books such as this one come out soon.
Exhaustive on the Perspective sections. Are you ready to think for yourself?  Oct 27, 2006
If you are looking for a book that gives wonderful and exhaustive presentations on different understandings of the Biblical concept of Election, this is the book for you. If you are wanting exhaustive and well thought-out responses to each presentation, you will be sorely disappointed as most of the responses take up only a page or two.

I have chosen to give this book 5 stars because the publisher and editor did not choose inexperienced but well-respected, established and prolific theologians to present their respective view. The book mostly leaves it up to the audience to decide which view of election they find Scripture supports the best, and this is what a good book that presents different viewpoints should do, namely give a little guidance but allow/force the audience to think for itself and make up its own mind about the issue at hand.

A great book for those who want to think their way through the issue, and a welcome addition to my theological library.
