Imagine a Creator designing every intricacy of the universe and creating His crowning jewel, mankind, in His image Now, imagine that same Creator with such a passionate, unquenchable love for them that when they introduced sin into the world, He came as a man to die an excruciating death for them. Ask yourself these questions. Did that Creator give His life for all mankind or just some? Did that creator give all mankind an opportunity for salvation? Does He love some more than others? The author explores these questions and many more in this inspiring work, Is God Calvinist or Arminian?
I highly recommend every layman as well as every Pastor include this book in their library.

There are three principles that establish the basis for our understanding of Gods will for mankind: His purpose for creation, His omniscient wisdom to choose the best way to achieve His purpose, and the power of His omnipotent will to perfectly execute His plan. Applying these principles to the teachings of Calvinism and Arminianism, Bob Raymond has shown that God created a plan for the salvation of mankind that is simple and orderly.
