Rick Shrader‘s Review:
I ordered this book after seeing a review by a friend. Austin Brown calls himself a “Classically Moderate Calvinist” who does not hold to limited atonement. He is writing against “strict particularists” or hyper-Calvinists who, of course, do hold to limited atonement. I fully agree with Brown’s position on atonement, that Christ’s death is sufficient and efficient for all. Christ died “for the sins of the whole world” (1 John 2:2). This is a thorough and enjoyable refutation of the high Calvinist point of view. Brown, as a moderate Calvinist, still holds to unconditional election, so he still believes only the elect will respond, or take advantage, of Christ’s atonement. So the problem of a valid free will offer of salvation to the whole world is not settled in this volume.
