- Reformed Doctrine of Predestination
Description: Although most famous for his critique of Catholicism in his book Roman Catholicism,
most of Boettner's work concerns topics within Reformed theology. In six sections, his
book elaborates upon and defends the "five points" of Calvinism, placing particular stress
on the doctrine of predestination. The book's first two sections introduce and define
Calvinism's basic doctrines, while the third through fifth sections explain and argue
for the validity of predestination as a Christian doctrine. The final section gives a short
exposition of Calvinism's role in history. Many, both inside and outside the Reformed
tradition, consider Boettner's summary and defense a staple among writings on Reformed
theology. Clear, concise, and finely structured, this book is very accessible to any reader
interested in the subject matter.
