The American Career of a Contentious Doctrine

Peter J. Thuesen

  • Shows that predestination, while considered obsolete by the liberal mainline, is far from dead, and is even a powerful economic force in America.
  • ''When is the last time that you read a book about predestination that was as witty as it was erudite? In his masterful history of this extraordinarily nettlesome doctrine, Thuesen shows that predestination is far more than just a doctrine.'' --Grant Wacker, Christian Century
  • ''Whatever your views on predestination, you will profit greatly from this thoughtful book...Peter Thuesen brings fresh perspectives to bear on this much-contested subject.'' --Christianity Today
