5.0 out of 5 stars genev 11 April 2013
By genev - Published on Amazon.com

R. L. Dabney states that the object of this entry is to "simply to enable all honest inquirers after truth to understand just what those doctrines really are which people style the peculiar 'doctrines of Presbyterians,' and thus to enable honest minds to answer all objections and perversions." In his brief overview of the history of the doctrine, Dabney identifies James Harmensen (a.k.a as Jacob Arminius) as the source of the controversy. Harmensen was a professor who taught a form of semi-Pelagianism which was later identified by others as 'Arminianism.' These errors were properly resolved by the Canons produced by Synod of Dordrecht (Dort). Dabney notes that "Like the Synod of Dort, we drawn our doctrines, not from any mortal man or human philosophy, but from the Holy Ghost speaking in the Bible." The term 'Calvinism' is often used by some people in derisive terms, but Calvin rightly defined 'Calvinism' as nothing less than 'orthodox biblical Christianity.' After concisely covering each of the five points, Dabney closes his article with, "Such is the Bible system of grace which men call Calvinism, so often in disparagement. Its least merit is that it corresponds exactly with experience, common sense, and true philosophy. Its grand evidence is that it corresponds with Scripture. 'Let God be true, and every man a liar.' This doctrine exalts God, his power, his sovereign, unbought love and mercy. They are entitled to be supremely exalted. This doctrine humbles man in the dust. He ought to be humbled; he is a guilty, lost sinner, the sole, yet the certain architect of his own ruin. Helpless, yet guilty of all that makes him helpless, he ought to take his place in the deepest contrition, and give all the glory of his redemption to God. This doctrine, while it lays man's pride low, gives him an anchor of hope, sure and steadfast, drawing him to heaven; for his hope is founded not in the weakness, folly, and fickleness of his human will, but in the eternal love, wisdom, and power of almighty God."

5.0 out of 5 stars Five points 18 February 2015
By Phil goins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is enlightening me to how Calvin was explaining more of what God is doing in all our lives, instead of what good meaning but lesser men and women have interpreted Calvin's writings. Although Dabney was at times hard to read and sometimes hard to comprehend, I still learned much more as to what God is and is doing in my life . I still will have a problem with those who find that they must shout from the roof tops that they are Calvinist more than showing who Christ is in their lives.
3.0 out of 5 stars Short essay by Dabney in large print and hard bound 10 June 2016
By N. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com

I want to clarify, before writing any further, that Dr. Robert Dabney's defense of the five points of Calvinism is one of the most clear, most biblical, and most helpful works on the subject I have ever read. It is also just about 20 pages long and widely available for free, or within his "Discussions". I was under the impression, reading this book's description, that this was a fuller treatment of the same subject in book length. It is not. This is Dr. Dabney's essay, in large print font, stretching to 80 pages, with the remainder of the book filled by Dr. Dickinson's treatment of the same issue. It's a fine work, but not what I expected from the description.
This book is overall disappointing and misleadingly titled and sold.

My favorite Presbyterian, sorry to my friends, as I love this book! The most Biblically balanced statement on the 5 points I know of and I love how he treats the areas that are controversial and difficult.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition needs serious proofing. 7 November 2013
By Matt P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This rating has nothing to do with the content of the book which I haven't fully read yet. I am ranking the quality of the Kindle edition of the book. Look at location 423 and you will see a hymn where all the words are compressed together with no spaces. It is quite annoying to try to read this. I guess I got what I paid for. Maybe should have gotten the hard copy.

It would also be REALLY nice if Kindle would support an option to display the page numbers and page breaks where they occur in the original. For scholarly work, this is a must. I get that sometimes you just want to read and not be bothered by page numbers, but other times you want them. Take a look at how Logos does the page breaks in the journal articles they have in their digital library.
