Additional Info
Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens. You will say to me then, Why still find fault? For who has resisted His will? But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Romans 9:18-20a

Hard words, indeed. But they remain, for all our explanations, God’s words.

Easy Chairs, Hard Words offers an honest look at many such difficult passages in Scripture. Presented as a series of fictional conversations between a curious young Christian and a seasoned pastor, these dialogues speak with clarity to those new to the Reformed faith. They begin with the question, Can salvation be lost? and from there wrestle with other hard-to-swallow doctrines, including the freedom of the will, election, and original sin.

Hard words, and yet the understanding given these passages is thoughtful and gentle. For our God ,the God of hard words, is a merciful and loving Father, slow to wrath and quick to pardon, a triune God who graciously rescues men from death and brings them into everlasting life.
