    This small book was a surprise Through the years, I have probably read a dozen books on predestination, Some were good and some were terrible This book will be in my top 5.It is simply written, but very good at explaining a difficult subject Many people get angry when discussing the subject of Predestination They see it as unfair Instead of a cruel and terrible thing, it should be looked on as beautiful.God is God If He isn t in control, then who is Us That would be scary I heard someon This small book was a surprise Through the years, I have probably read a dozen books on predestination, Some were good and some were terrible This book will be in my top 5.It is simply written, but very good at explaining a difficult subject Many people get angry when discussing the subject of Predestination They see it as unfair Instead of a cruel and terrible thing, it should be looked on as beautiful.God is God If He isn t in control, then who is Us That would be scary I heard someone say that if a mosquito can do something that is against God s control, it would havepower than God By default that would make it God.The definition of God means One who is all powerful Without His sustaining power, we would not even be alive.Petty s book takes us through some very hard questions.Does God control the future Does God choose who will be saved Is it fair if God choose one over another for salvation And many Petty not only talks about our salvation, he shows how God is involved in all our lives We can take comfort when we have problems, because we know God is in control He works all things for the good of those who are called.Does this not do away with freewill This is also discussed We do not have absolute freedom, but compatibilist freedom We make choices and God is sovereign at the same time We may not understand it, but God is even in control of our discussions, but not in a way that he is the author of our sin It is a mystery like the trinity We will never understand this side of heaven.I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone interested in the subject of Predestination It makes predestination accessible to the person who has never tackled the subject.I give it 5 out of 5 stars I received this book, free of charge, from Matthias Media and Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review

    This book did a great job in introducing the concept of predestination at an entry level This is a subject that is too often obfuscated by emotional reactions and theological terminology that requires a dictionary to understand The author did a great job in breaking down the complicated arguments that we often turn to and presents predestination in a digestible, easy to read way.The only complaint I may have about the book is that it can get a bit too simplistic at times It feels like the mai This book did a great job in introducing the concept of predestination at an entry level This is a subject that is too often obfuscated by emotional reactions and theological terminology that requires a dictionary to understand The author did a great job in breaking down the complicated arguments that we often turn to and presents predestination in a digestible, easy to read way.The only complaint I may have about the book is that it can get a bit too simplistic at times It feels like the main audience is teenagers and those new to the faith, but it comes across a little bit too juvenile in some of the explanations I could definitely see a teenager with higher intellect getting turned off by some of the language used, but perhaps that is my own problem and not necessarily a problem with the way the author wrote it.This could be used to great effect in a youth group study series I could even see it being used in an AWANA group as a supplemental resource if such a thing were allowed I d recommend it for anybody who wants a refresher on predestination, those new to the concept, and those who want to learn how to teach youth this important doctrine

    I think the little black book is written in a way to appeal to the younger generation and gives you a glimpse into the topic of predestination I think this book is helpful in introducing the topic however I often feel topics like this can be interpreted differently for each person that reads it It s a good way to open up a conversation about predestination, it doesn t necessarily give you the answer you want to hear but it does gives you answers It would be better if it was a bitin dept I think the little black book is written in a way to appeal to the younger generation and gives you a glimpse into the topic of predestination I think this book is helpful in introducing the topic however I often feel topics like this can be interpreted differently for each person that reads it It s a good way to open up a conversation about predestination, it doesn t necessarily give you the answer you want to hear but it does gives you answers It would be better if it was a bitin depth in the topic however it is a quick read version and straight to the point I feel like it has given me a good perspective of predestination although I will still be looking at different arguments for predestination based on biblical evidence to come to my own conclusion on the topic

    I found this book very helpful, especially considering it s size As a 30 something adult I found it really helped explain things and answer hard questions, but the writing style is such that teens would also be able to follow it There s enough humor to keep it from feeling like an academic book, but the content is far from fluffy.

    Feels quite dated and definitely aimed at youth but think it misses the mark with the language and they will find it cringe worthy Clearly explained but gives little in the way of satisfying answers.

    Predestination Very simple and easy to understand despite a complex subject Well illustrated and with examples Highly recommended for young and old.

    Very narrow minded and misses the mark completely Totally contradictory to the true nature and charcter of God.

    A pretty good effort to tackle a massive theological issue in a very short, youth friendly way Petty is honest about the hard questions about the difficult topic and argues consistently from the bible, presenting the reformed view of predestination Being a book for teenagers, the stories are light hearted and the humour is corny Gets straight to the point in every chapter doesn t have much room to play with, only 84 half sized pages which is refreshing I felt like I had helpfully grappled A pretty good effort to tackle a massive theological issue in a very short, youth friendly way Petty is honest about the hard questions about the difficult topic and argues consistently from the bible, presenting the reformed view of predestination Being a book for teenagers, the stories are light hearted and the humour is corny Gets straight to the point in every chapter doesn t have much room to play with, only 84 half sized pages which is refreshing I felt like I had helpfully grappled with the issue without needing to wade through long dense pages of theology Arriving at any sort of mature conclusion regarding predestination is the work of years decades rather than a single short book, but this is a helpful and versatile introduction

    Finished on January 8 and because a young friend asked about predestination read it again with them and finished again October 14 same issues I had and with theses books in general too brief to be of great value, but I guess it is a good starting point Possibly better to look elsewhere, but it did point me to Erickson so there was good there
