(2) TULIP: The Five Points of Calvinism in the Light of Scripture by Duane Edward Spencer

Tulip is a popular acronym for the five points of Calvinism total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints. In this book, these five points are not only concisely explained in the light of the Bible but are also helpfully contrasted to the corresponding five points of Arminianism. The differences between Calvanistic and Arminian beliefs are also summarized at the end of the book for quick reference. Anyone looking for an accessible explanation of this somewhat difficult and controversial doctrine, or looking for help in explaining it to others, will find this an invaluable resource. Tulip has had steady sales since its original Baker publication in 1979, and there is now nearly 55,000 copies in print.

(3) WHAT IS REFORMED THEOLOGY? Understanding the Basics by R.C. Sproul

Have you ever wondered about "the five points"? What do they really mean?

You've heard of Reformed theology, but you're not certain what it is. Some references to it have been positive, some negative. It appears to be important, and you'd like to know more about it. But you want a full, understandable explanation, not a simplistic one.

'What Is Reformed Theology?' is not a textbook but rather an accessible introduction to beliefs that have been immensely influential in the evangelical church. In this insightful book, R. C. Sproul will walk you through the foundations of the Reformed doctrine and explain how the Reformed belief is centered on God, based on God's Word, and committed to faith in Jesus Christ. Sproul will explain the five points of Reformed theology and will make plain to you the reality of God's amazing grace.

Reviews

"His latest book weaves together several of his finest lessons in a compact, highly readable form that explains several difficult doctrines of the Reformed branch of Christianity. Dr. Spoul's logic is easy to follow, though it never talks down."--Amanda Killgore, Huntress Reviews

"Not only does Sproul have an amazingly broad but detailed grasp of Reformed theology, but he has also been gifted with the ability to explain complex theology in a way that is both interesting and understandable. That is no common gift. Accessible, biblical and educational, this is one of the best books I have read on the subject."--Tim Challies, challies.com

"Who better to write a book on the basics of Reformed theology than its poster boy, R. C. Sproul. 'What Is Reformed Theology?' Is peppered throughout with excellent diagrams and illustrations which aid in getting Sproul's message across. There is no doubt that Sproul is a master teacher."--Gary Gilley, Southern View Chapel
