Apr 15, 2016 Don Incognito rated it liked it. This little book, written in the 1980s by some local pastor in Prescott, Arizona, explains the Calvinist doctrine of election (predestination) from a very strong Calvinist viewpoint. It's a good source to learn the theology of election from, although any number of Christian sources teach this.

The conviction gathers upon us with deepening power, that there must have been a supreme intelligence arranging the forces of nature. If I throw the dice box twenty times, and the same numbers always turn up, I cannot resist the conclusion that the dice must have been loaded.

This book shows just how badly the apostasy really is. About 150 years ago, the Southern Baptists believed in predestination, whereby we are ALL guilty and deserve Death but GOD to show his righteous judgement, selected a certain few to show his grace and mercy to them and give them salvation.

Many past preachers in the Southern Baptist faith believed and taught this correct doctrine. this will open your eyes.

I have a lot of books on Calvinistic Theology. This book is short and concise, and is meant to address only the "starting point" for understanding this theology. It does a great job, and I highly recommend it to any Baptist who is unfamiliar with his own denomination's history, or the body of systematic theology called "Calvinism", which formed its roots. May this fine book be your starting point for learning in this superficial age we live in.

I bought a few of these books to give out to friends and family. Excellent book!

Good reference. Know what you believe is important.

This book is not only a look back at what Southern Baptists have historically believed about God's sovereignty in salvation (as the title might suggest), it also connects this foundational doctrine with other matters of faith and practice -- how we worship, why we share the gospel, why and how we pray for unbelievers, and how this doctrine helps us understand God's great plan of redemption as revealed in Scripture. As Baptists have become more and more afraid of and embarrassed about the doctrine of election, or have dismissed it as irrelevant or divisive, our methods and practices have been reduced to unbiblical pragmatism. This book is a clarion call to return to a rock-solid confidence in God's plan to save sinners for the praise of His glorious grace.

This book handles all of the areas of election with Spirit led accuracy and can be recommended with confidence. To miss this book and its message would only handicap one in their understanding of God's plan.

I grew up in a Southern Baptist church, but have seen fit over the last year or so to become a Free Will Baptist.

This book is poorly written and only slightly better argued. Selph, I gather, is an honest man who makes a heartfelt argument in favor of bringing the Southern Baptists back to their roots on the doctrine of election - that is, that they espouse Calvinistic UNconditional election. He makes the point that Southern Baptists were, in the beginning, advocates of unconditional election - Calvinist. Now they a pretty much, on the exterior, Arminian on election - i.e., anyone can come to salvation. The largest chunk of the book is devoted to showing that Southern Baptists and their ilk were Calvinistic - a huge boring chunk of the book. Three pages to prove John A. Broadus believed in unconditional election, four pages to prove Spurgeon did, five to prove Basil Manly, Sr. did. Okay, I get the point. It actually took me nearly four months to get through this portion of the book because it was so tedious. The last half of the book is devoted to proving that the Bible teaches unconditional election. Aside from being poorly written, unfocused, and, again, boring, it is nothing new. It is a weak argument for Calvinism pointing to iffy verses and building straw men of Arminians. Arminius did not teach that men are not totally depraved, men choosing Christ is not a work, and works is not what Arminianism is about. See the books by Olson and Picirilli to get the truth on Arminianism and its theology. Selph's slipshod theology boils down to salvation by election, not salvation by faith. Yet, like most Calvinists, he cannot help but make contradictory arguments. Selph spends an entire chapter telling us that man can do nothing to accept salvation, unless God has secretly chosen him before time began. Only God can make a man turn to Christ in his Calvinist schema, yet in the next chapter he claims: "The only person to be saved is the person who radically turns from sin and trusts in Christ.... God, in His love, will receive sinners with open arms...." Wait! How can a man turn to Christ and come to him? God makes them come, irresistibly (remember your TULIP). Pick one Pastor Selph.

The writing style is sloppy, yet you can see that Selph really does believe in his topic. This saves it from totally sucking. The "Bibliography" is in fact, the endnotes section, there is no bib. There is no index. Selph set out to prove first that Southern Baptists were Calvinistic in their theology, and his quite tedious history belaborously points this out. Okay. His attempt to prove that unconditional election is biblically sound rests on tired arguments that folks like Free Will Baptist theologian Picirilli have refuted years ago. He fails on that accord, unless you are convinced already.
