About the Book

The doctrines of grace have sparked debate as well as inspiration since the beginning of the Reformation. For their proponents, they form the foundation of orthodox belief. For their critics, they represent an assault on free will and the nature of man. Known more commonly as the TULIP of Calvinism, these five tenets have been maligned and denigrated by those who fail to understand them. Worse yet, the truths behind these five points are being lost to generations of new believers as the tradition behind them is being quickly forgotten.

Clarity and biblical reflection on the TULIP of Calvinism is required. Through the imagery and lens of modern medicine, Dr. Thomas J. Kessler sheds new light on these crucial aspects of Calvinism and why they deserve appreciation by Christians abroad. The disease of sin has infected and devastated all of humanity. Is there hope for a cure? If so, how was it procured and to whom has it been applied? Can we have confidence in the eternal healing of such a treatment? Drawing from his experiences as a physician and insights from medicine at large, Dr. Kessler sets the record straight. Calvinism represents the biblical concept of God as our great physician, and the sacrifice of His Son as our only cure.
