At some time in your Christian life you may have struggled with questions like:
- When a sinner is saved, who chooses whom—does God choose the sinner, or the sinner choose God?
- Did Christ die for the sins of everyone, or just the people He saves?
The vast majority of those kinds of thorny, persistent, mind-boggling questions are directly related to the sovereignty of God, election, predestination, perseverance, and the issue of “free will.” Those, of course, are doctrines associated with Calvinism. All are vital to a sound, biblical understanding of the gospel, but they are not without difficulty.
In The Doctrines of Grace, John MacArthur takes you to God’s Word and walks you through challenging truth that’s often neglected, maligned, or mischaracterized, but is critical for every Christian to understand. This series will help you come to grips with what you believe about God, the gospel, and the nature of man.
