Recommends it for: Anyone pursuing Reformed theology
Quite possibly the preeminent book on the Five Points, though not outlined necessarily with the Five Points as a structure. A through exegesis of the Five Points details the first half of the book, while the second half is application to daily life in many different arenas, from occupational to political. For anyone just discovering Reformed Theology, along with Horton's "Putting Amazing Back Into Grace" I consider this a must-OWN.

The best introduction to the Calvinistic world and life view that has ever been written. It helped me get a handle on the Calvinistic perspective of life and culture many years ago when I first read it.
