Coming Soon from B&H Publishing Group - Salvation and Sovereignty

If you have an interest in salvation, election and the sovereignty of God I think you might like this book. Salvation and Sovereignty: A Molinist Approach promises to bring a unique exploration of an age-old issue. The most popular defender of Molinism today is probably William Lane Craig. (See here for some online articles and for a good popular treatment see his book The Only Wise God from Wipf and Stock. This was originally published by Baker.) In this volume, however, author Kenneth Keathley builds on the acronym ROSES which was first presented by Timothy George.

R = Radical Depravity
O = Overcoming Grace
S = Sovereign Election
E = Eternal Life
S = Singular Redemption

I don't know enough about ROSES to comment on its merits or how much it actually differs from the Calvinist TULIP. There are a couple of articles online for those interested in pursuing further.

Salvation and Sovereignty is due out in January 2010. It will be a paperback with 256 pages and sell for $24.99.

Kenneth Keathley is professor of Theology and dean of Graduate Studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
