If God is truly God, He is sovereign
—over all things, over all decisions.
If God is truly God, then He chooses who
goes to heaven and those who don't.

Predestination, says the author, isn't just for Calvinists. It is for all biblical Christians. Predestination doesn't create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints the portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans.

There is mystery in God's ways, but not contradiction. Point by point, the author examines the Scriptures on predestination and refutes the naysayers.

We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty.

We love him because he first loved us.

  My Favorite R.C. Sproul
Willow White of Washougal, 8/19/2016
This is my favorite R.C. Sproul book because, I like how instead of trying to explain how predestination and free will work together he talks about God's sovereignty. He also discusses different views held by other popular theologians on this subject. The book's well written and easy to understand but also very thought provoking. I think that it is a good book for any one interested in theology. Or maybe it would interest some who are not.
