one not from a systematic theology sense, just one based on primerly that one doctrine?
The Bible would be the best.
I would recommend By His Grace and For His Glory, by Dr. Tom Nettles. He is a professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
I don't remember the publisher, but a Google search should give you all the information you need.
I agree completely!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
Chosen by God, by R.C. Sproul
If you "like" or "don't mind" reading a comparitive type work, the following is a good read which spans the dimensions of interpretation of the doctrine of electioon.
Come on guys, the op wanted books on "biblical" election
The Locus Classicus on election is The reformed Doctrine of Predestination by Loraine (actually a man! :laugh Boettner (P & R Publishing. ISBN 0-87552-112-6).
There is also A. W. Pink's The Doctrines of Election and Justification (Pietan Publications. No ISBN number). You can read it on line at http://www.pbministries.org/books/pink/Election/index.htm
James White has a book called The Potter's Freedon which I have and ound helpful, but can't find itat the moment, so I can't give you the publisher. It is a response to another book, so it helps to have read that one first.
There are a lot of good resources listed already.
This, by Schreiner and Ware is also very good:
Schreiner also has a few other books where he breaks down particular issues of theology, the Law, Perseverence (a GREAT and biblical example), and a complete work on NT Theology (different than systematic theology!) that should be required reading.
just curious, just picked up a NT theology of Donald Guthrie , is that a good book to read and study from?
I have not read Guthrie so I don't have an opinion right now. I did use his NT Introduction, which tended to a lot of Barthian views.
His NT Intro book was required text book at the time...
What i remembered, was what I would see as being 'critical" Evangelical, but definitely better than the more liberal intros available to use at that time!
Since then we have a few other selections in NT and OT introductions that are better for students as they eliminate a lot of the Tübingen School fallacies (I call them that, though not "techncially correct, because they formulated opinons about biblical issues without actually doing any research into the facts of the matter) for actual scholarship verified with field work.
The very first response.
