  • Other things to be announced over the course of the year

In recent days I have added a new, downloadable teaching series from R.C. Sproul. Chosen by God is one of his classic series (that later became one of his most widely-read books). Here is a brief description:

Many people reject Reformed theology or Calvinism because they believe it teaches that God drags people kicking and screaming into the church against their will. This, however, is a gross distortion of the biblical doctrine of election, which is grounded in God’s love for His people. In this classic teaching series, Dr. Sproul carefully explains the meaning of God’s sovereignty in the work of redemption and shows how it relates to the will of man.
