An in-depth look at the doctrine of divine election, with an attempt to clarify precisely what is at stake and correct misrepresentations of both points of view.
"I can't know and love and serve God if I don't know truth about God. This book describes God the way he really is." -John Piper, Founder, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary "Sam Storms's Chosen for Life is well-conceived, well-reasoned, and well-written, with its arguments anchored in the Scriptures. It is fair, thorough, and up-to-date regarding the controversies that swirl around this vital biblical doctrine." -Mark Talbot, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Wheaton College "This new edition of Chosen for Life has everything one could want on the topic of election. Those who agree will be heartily encouraged; those who disagree will be respectfully challenged; the hearts of all will marvel at the glorious grace of God in the gospel." -C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky "Storms's offensive against Arminian-type views of election among evangelicals is a very solid piece of work. The thoroughness of its arguments gives it conclusive force." -J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College "I am delighted that a revised and expanded edition of Sam Storms's book Chosen for Life is now available. When students have asked me for a concise, clear, pastoral, and practical explanation of election, I have said that Chosen for Life is my top choice." -Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Professor of Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky "This extraordinarily clear and courteous book makes its case without stooping to caricature or invective. It is a fine model of exactly how theological disagreements should be resolved: with respectful listening, careful distinctions, historical awareness, deep reverence for Scripture, and patient exegesis." -D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; cofounder, The Gospel Coalition
