The Sovereignty of God's Mercy (Paperback)

Paul, in Romans 9, directly tackles some huge questions: "why did Israel reject its own Messiah?,""have God's promises to Israel failed?,""how can it be fair for God to choose some and not others?,""how can God condemn if none of us is able to resist His will?,""does the Bible teach election?,""how do you explain reprobation?," and "why do some people refuse to believe?" This booklet is provided in hopes that it will help you sort out some of these great questions.

Reformed Academic Press's Truth for Life series aims to address important doctrinal issues in an engaging and understandable way, and then to show how those doctrinal matters make a difference in life. The importance of truth in a relativistic, "post-modern," pluralistic society cannot be overemphasized. We cannot fellowship with God unless we know Him as He is, and that means knowing the truth. It is our hope that Truth for Life will serve as an invitation to think deeply about the truth.
