Christ Freely Offered

Product Description

ISBN 9780648725015

Author Ken Stebbins

Pages 154

Originally written in 1975, Ken Stebbins' Christ Freely Offered is seen as one of the best defenses on the subject of the free offer of the Gospel. Tackling both scripture and the historical-theological aspects, Stebbins engages with many of the main individuals involved in this subject including Herman Hoeksema, John Murray and Ned Stonehouse. This edition has been slightly updated by Stebbins, and will help readers come to a firm understanding of this subject as well as an insight into the decrees of God and the idea of Common Grace. 

"Are we supposed to proclaim the gospel as a plea for sinners to be reconciled with God? Does the gospel message include a well-meant proffer of forgiveness and salvation to all sinners in general, or only the elect in particular? Some would say these are the hardest questions related to the sovereignty of God and the doctrine of election. Ken Stebbins tackles the conundrum and helps sort it out with great care, biblical precision, and uncommon clarity. This is the most readable, easy-to-follow work on the subject I know."

Phil Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You

"Calvinists are stewards of beautiful truths derived from Scripture. As such, we have the solemn responsibility to defend them from erroneous interpretation and application. Christ Freely Offered continues to be a helpful resource for those seeking a response against the Hyper-Calvinistic error that persists into our day. Especially helpful are the extensive and helpful discussions of major Reformed theologians on this issue."

Dr. Sam Waldron, President and Academic Dean, Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary
