If you’re a non-Calvinist and wish to understand how a well-bred Calvinist argues the five-points of Calvinism, that is, the Doctrines of Grace, then Richard D. Phillips What’s So Great About the Doctrines of Grace? is a great place to start. And if you’re a Calvinist but need to get a good grip on the Doctrines of Grace, I recommend the same.
In 97 pages, Phillips sets forth compelling arguments for why he thinks the Doctrines of Grace, the five-points of Calvinism, are so great. In the Preface Phillips writes:
But I especially love these doctrines because of their marvelous theme: the sovereign grace of God for unworthy sinners. For even greater than their enlightening effect on the mind, the doctrines of God are utterly transforming to the believing heart. To love the doctrines of grace is to love God as He has revealed Himself in His Word. (p. xi)
Even I found the book compelling and engaging on the TULIP: Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints.
