GOD'S GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF GRACE
The Potter's Prerogative - A Response to Leighton Flowers
Dr. Theodore Zachariades

WE HOPE TO HAVE THIS IMPORTANT TITLE AVAILABLE BY MID-OCTOBER 2017

"There is nothing better calculated to put steel in our spiritual beings than a firm grasp of the sovereignty of God in our salvation, as it is revealed in Scripture. Starting with the glory and majesty of God, Dr. Theodore Zachariades proves this truth with biblical fidelity and precision against a recent detractor. We need such champions of the faith today for the sake of the spiritual prosperity of the church of Christ. May we all put our thinking caps on and read this book so that we can teach and defend the true gospel in all its glory!" -Dr. Conrad Mbewe

"In today's politically-correct environment, to write a book with the sole purpose of refuting another one seems to be an outdated enterprise, very misguided and actually downright mean. More than that, this particular book is not a mere casual side swipe, but a thorough, detailed rebuttal. It addresses an opponent's arguments going to the biblical text, passage by passage, verse by verse. Point by point no ground is conceded. There is actually good reason for that. When truth is attacked, the failure to respond can be viewed by some as an admission that no counter-argument exists. When it comes to God's Sovereignty in salvation, such is surely not the case. I for one view this work by Dr. Zachariades as the exact opposite as 'nasty' but instead a kind and tender-hearted labor of love that I pray will be read widely, even by those who come to it with a bias opposed to the author's conclusions. I pray that it will be used of God to stem the tide of a dangerous man-centered theology (one that I know all too well, having formerly embraced it myself) that robs God of His full glory in salvation. May it lead many to delight in the true and certain knowledge that salvation is of the Lord." - John Samson, author of 'Twelve What Abouts, Answering Common Objections Concerning God's Sovereignty and Election

"Dr. Zachariades has provided a significant response to a recent challenge to the historic Southern Baptist doctrine of salvation by those who have positioned themselves as defenders of mankind's supposed 'libertarian free will.' By interacting with one of the leading theologians of that movement, Dr. Zachariades exposes its exegetical fallacies, theological superficiality, historical naivety, and dangerous associations. Most importantly, he forcefully demonstrates how far short that theological system falls from understanding the way that the Bible reveals the glory of God in the salvation of sinners through the person and work of Jesus Christ. Biblically saturated, theologically rigorous, polemically pointed and historically informed, this work has successfully refuted the arguments engaged. It is never a pleasant task to expose the errors of well-meaning Christian brothers, but when those errors are publicly being championed as faithfulness to God's Word, then they must be examined in the light of Scripture so that they can be seen for what they genuinely are. If you want a thorough defense of the doctrines of God's grace in the salvation of sinners, read this book!" - Dr. Thomas Ascol

"Theodore Zachariades, Ph D, has written this book specifically to lay bare the great difficulties one has to shoulder in order to maintain such a system. His careful labors have revealed just how radically disturbing is this attempted defense of traditionalism. Dr. Zachariades begins with the doctrine of God and shows how this view must either deny, or ignore, certain key biblical ideas in this root thought of all biblical doctrine. He proceeds with carefully exegeted studies of grace, the cross, biblical love, and the character of divine involvement in redemption. Along the way, he gives a clear presentation of Calvin's views of these matters (since he has come in for especially harsh treatment by Dr. Flowers), employs an impressive number of quality doctrinal and exegetical works (old and new), unfolds a pertinent knowledge of historical and systematic theology, manifests competence in use of the original languages of Scripture, and shows the advantages of a fair and rigorous orientation to logic. His method includes an investigation of the assumptions and polemical methodology of Dr. Flowers, demonstrating for everyone, hopefully, how certain mis-steps undergird this attempt to create a new paradigm for soteriology. Dr. Zachariades has done all of us a favor, both protagonists and antagonists of this theological movement, for he has given it the deep and serious examination that such a foundation-altering proposal calls for." - Dr. Tom J. Nettles

"In every generation the glorious sovereignty of God has to be reasserted and defended against those who seek to discount it in the name of a supposed human freedom to choose or to reject his provision for them. This book reminds us that the grace of God can neither be invented nor refused, and offers us true hope and assurance that our salvation is eternally secure." - Dr. Gerald Bray
