Book #28: Chosen by God by R.C. Sproul

Number of pages: 200

This book is all about how everything is part of God's plan and the concept of "predestination". The book talks about how God uses other peoples' bad intentions for good, and some of this was very challenging, mostly the concept that some people are chosen before birth to be saved and how others are chosen to not be saved, and how God knows all of us before we are even born.

I enjoyed this book a lot; it reinforced some of what I already believe and caused me to look at some things from a new perspective; the concept "original sin" does not simply mean the act of disobeying God in the Garden of Eden, but any subsequent act of sin, and God does not harden peoples' hearts unless as a punishment for their own sins.

Overall, this is one of the most comprehensive Christian books I have read.

Next book: Swallowdale (Arthur Ransome)
