Founders Ministry is pleased to announce a new book, coming this July:

Whomever He WIlls: A Surprising Display Of Sovereign Mercy, edited by Matthew Barrett and Tom Nettles.

Retail Price: $25.95 – Special Prepub Offer: Preorder Now for $13.00. Offer good now through July 31, 2012

Here is the description of the book from the back cover:

In Romans 9:16 and 18 Paul states, “So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy…. So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.” Regretfully, many today promote a theology that argues the exact opposite! Salvation is made to depend on the human will, rather than on God’s mercy. In contrast, the authors of Whomever He Wills defend the biblical affirmation of God’s sovereign choice in salvation. God reigns supreme over all things and he will accomplish his purpose in saving his people without fail.

Commendations for the book include:

 “The essays here do represent a serious engagement by a team of thoughtful Baptist pastors and theologians to come to grips with a major tension inherent in the Christian gospel itself. As such, it deserves to be read, discussed, and responded to.”

Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School
Author of Theology of the Reformers

“The issues in this book are essential to a consistent Theism. They are essential to any confession of divine rescue. They are an essential part of the very fabric of the biblical revelation of divine salvation. They are essential to a right understanding of the gospel. They are essential to a worship that would rightly acknowledge God as the Savior of sinners. And they are basic to a realized joy in God’s salvation.”

Fred Zaspel, author of The Theology of B. B. Warfield
Pastor, Reformed Baptist Church of   Franconia, PA

“The doctrines of grace, which form the subject matter of this book, have often proven to be the stuff of controversy in the church’s history. What I deeply appreciate about these studies of these precious truths, though, is the irenicism that informs them. And this is as it should be. To paraphrase the apostle: here we find the speaking of the truth about divine grace in love.”

Michael A.G. Haykin, Professor of Church History, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
