    This is a good book if you re a new Calvinist or an Arminian beginning to study the issue.White demolishes Hunt at every turn Hunt offers some of the most ridiculous and emotive arguments I ve seen in a theological discussion What we have here is confirmation of what seems to almost always be the case Calvinists are just simply better theologians and exegetes than Arminians.Due to Hunt s ridiculous and libelous approach to Calvinism in this book, one can get annoyed fairly quickly It s becau This is a good book if you re a new Calvinist or an Arminian beginning to study the issue.White demolishes Hunt at every turn Hunt o...

    Nothing sums up the debate in this book better than Dr White s own final quotation of preaching great C H Spurgeon, so allow me to quote his quoting We must observe that there is nothing upon which men need to beinstructed than upon the question of what Calvinism really is The most infamous allegations have been brought against us, and sometimes, I must fear, by men who knew them to be utterly untrue and, to this day, there are many of our opponents, who, when they run short of ma Nothing sums up the debate in this book better than Dr White s own final quotation of preaching great C H Spurgeon, so allow me to quote his quoting We must observe that t...

    A friend gave me this book, knowing that I like reading Theology and whatnot, so I gave it a chance I didn t learn much from it It typefies what I really don t like about some pockets of Christian theology There is a lot of self righteous, cocky, condescending attitude on both sides of the debate and absolutely no feeling of brotherly love or mutual respect I felt like the point of this book was for each of the writers to appear smarter than the other rather than to uncover any...

    This book was two guys engaging in a debate The one guy gave a strong positive argument for his position along with tackling the strongest arguments against it The other guy was disappointing, to me saddening, in the way he lobbed offensive grenades at various straw man positions without heeding clarifications from his opponent , while any hint of a positive argument was surface level defensiveness It s historically meaningful and interesting to see the positions of both men and the way the This book was two guys engaging in a debate The one guy gave a strong positive argument for his position along with tackling the strongest arguments against it The other guy was disappointing, to me saddening, in the way he lobbed offensive grenades at various straw man positions wit...

    I got a lotout of the first half when James White was presenting his arguments affirming Calvinism, mainly because I don t care for Dave Hunt s writing After a while the whole thing just felt incredibly repetitive It could have been 1 4 the length and said the same amount.

    This book contains a mismatched debate, and one not particularly glorifying to God Not having read any other books by Hunt, I suspect he had bitten off muchthan he could chew when he wrote What Love is This and when he agreed to participate in this debate I also suspect that many professing Arminians would disagree with Hunt s position He just wasn t a good choice to represent that...

    From the title, I expected a book where each side would present their key texts, and then the other would attempt to refute them show the errors This was definitely not what I found Instead of the scholarly debate I expected, I found a schoolyard name calling contests By the end of the book I was so frustrated, because the same arguments were being used over and over and over White did a fairly good job to make a good, Scriptural debate except for the name calling , but Hunt didn t even see From the title, I expected a book where each side would present their key texts, and then the other would attempt to refute them show the errors This was definitely not what I found Instead of the scholarly debate I expected, I found a schoolyard name calling contests By the end of the book I was so frustrated, because the same arguments were being used over and over and over White did a fairly good job to make a good, Scriptural debate except for the name calling , but Hunt didn t even seem to try He didn t understand the position he was refuting, and wouldn t change his perceptions when it was pointed out that he misunderstood His exegesis was also definitely not strong like White s That is, when he did use Scripture at all There was at least one chapter in his seven that used no scripture at all He also never presented a solid presentation of what he did believe, always attacking Calvinism instead For ...

    Having come to this book with the expectation of siding with both authors at times, since I was only at most a 4 point Calvinist TUIP , I was surprised to come away from it with the 5th point firmly in my own pocket White does a good job of explicating Calvinist doctrine, while Hunt continually demonstrates a lack of even understanding the system of faith he is trying to dismantle In that regard, the purpose of the book as a debate is undermined You cannot truly critique what you do not unde Having come to this book with the expectation of siding with both authors at times, since I was only at most a 4 point Calvinist TUIP , I was surprised to come away from it with the 5th point firmly in my own pocket White does a good job of explicating Calvinist doctrine, while Hunt continually demonstrates a lack of even understanding the system of faith he is trying to dismantle In that reg...

    This is the first book that I put back on the shelf before finishing in a long time I guess I was expecting an informative and collegial debate It was neither collegial or all that informative The editor really made a mistake in choosing one the authors as the author did not follow the rules of the debate nor was he effectively arguing his side I have seen much better in my limited experience with this debate There are very learned theologians out there on both sides of this discussion that This is the first book that I put back on ...
