Peter Sammons has provided for us what is undoubtedly the most thorough explanation and defense of the doctrine of predestination and reprobation, and I strongly commend it to you. --JOHN MACARTHUR

The doctrine of reprobation--that is, the eternal, unconditional decree of God for the non-elect--is frequently misconstrued in both pastoral and theological literature. In Reprobation and God's Sovereignty
, Peter Sammons retrieves this oft-misunderstood doctrine, revealing its relationship to divine sovereignty. With Romans 9 as a guiding text, Sammons presents a thoroughly researched defense of reprobation as an essential part in a Reformed theology that magnifies God and encourages believers to trust in him. Reprobation and God's Sovereignty
clearly defines and demonstrates from Scripture the foundational terms and doctrines required for properly understanding reprobation, such as:
- God's justice
- Secondary Causality
Understanding these theological ideas proves vital to answering life's all-important question, Who is God? Sammons shows how the doctrine of reprobation leads to a greater admiration for God, eliciting higher praise, reverence, and belief in him.
God's intention in damnation is one of the darkest and yet most telling parts of Christian theology. Peter Sammons organizes, analyzes, and argues a thoughtful, traditional Reformed reading. The book itself is an invaluable resource as a compilation of historical interpretations of the doctrine. --MARK DEVER

Peter Sammons carefully explores numerous passages of Scripture and brings clear thinking to plumb the depths of this awe-inspiring biblical doctrine so that we can better understand what the Bible means when it says, 'Jacob I have loved, but Esau I hated.' Anyone who wants a better understanding of these brief but powerful words would do well to read this book. --J. V. FESKO
