Summary

Summary

In What's So Great About the Doctrines of Grace?, the Rev. Richard D. Rick Phillips shows that the doctrines of grace, those theological tenets more popularly known as the five points of Calvinism, are comforting, faith-strengthening, and humbling teachings. In six short chapters, Rev. Phillips demonstrates conclusively from Scripture that this view of salvation exalts God and makes plain His great love for man, which drove Him to do all that was necessary to redeem a people for Himself. In his opening chapter, Rev. Phillips cites the calling of Isaiah the prophet to show that a proper understanding of the sovereignty of God leads to a willingness to serve, a humble obedience to God s commands, a holy boldness, and a firm reliance on sovereign, saving grace. Then, over the next five chapters, he deals with the five doctrines of grace one by one-total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints providing thorough explanations, answering objections, and showing how the doctrines advance Christian living. What's So Great About the Doctrines of Grace? is a compact, highly readable treasure chest of scriptural wisdom.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The heart of the gospel is contained in the doctrines of grace. To understand these truths is to understand the height, depth, breadth, and length of the saving grace of God for sinners. Richard Phillips has done an outstanding job of capturing the heartbeat of these precious truths. Prepare your heart to be greatly blessed as this pastor and author guides you into a greater appreciation of the sovereign grace of God.” Dr. Steven J. Lawson, senior pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, AL
“In summarizing the doctrines of grace in this book… [Phillips] brings us into the arena of historic Calvinism…but what we have here is more than just a retelling of the doctrines themselves; it is an account of why these truths matter in the church of the twenty-first century. Its enthusiasm is infectious, its urgency compelling, and its logic irrefutable.” Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas, professor of systematic and practical theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

Author Bio: Richard D. Phillips

Author Bio: Richard D. Phillips

Richard D. Phillips was raised in an Army family and grew up on posts around America. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he followed his father and grandfather by serving as a tank officer. While in graduate school in Philadelphia, his mother urged him to start attending church again, so he visited the Tenth Presbyterian Church. The message he heard that night changed his life, a sermon from the Old Testament book of Hosea about God’s redeeming love for sinners through the cross of Jesus Christ. He quickly became active in Officer’s Christian Fellowship during the years he was teaching leadership at West Point. He began leading a Bible study for students and was then asked to write a daily devotional before finally starting to preach at Christian meetings. Through these experiences, he concluded that God was calling him into a full-time pulpit ministry, so he left the Army and embarked on fulfilling God’s call to the ordained ministry. He now serves as senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. He frequently speaks at conferences on the Bible and theology and is active in overseas missions, especially in East Africa. He likes to spend time with his wife and children and is a loyal follower of his alma mater, the Michigan Wolverines, as well as an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox.
