Does God Lie?

Next Sunday is Father's Day, so it's appropriate to post about my dad. It's not very often in life we tell family members that we love them and are proud of them. Maybe we show it, maybe we hint at it, but we rarely say "love you" or "I'm proud of you." This is one of those moments that I'm proud of my dad.

My dad just published a book entitled "Does God Lie?" Check it out on Amazon. Here's a quick summery of what the book is about.

Book Summary:
Could Calvinists and Arminians both be wrong? C. Hanson wrote in Christianity Today (September, 2006) that the debate about “free will” in salvation may never be settled. The author here takes a fresh look at God’s Word from outside the two traditional views and finds a few surprises. Both sides of the debate ignore a fundamental truth which could revise how we see God’s elect. His proposal changes how we commonly understand some of the tougher texts in the Scriptures, but the interpretation could be more accurate. The author asks these questions to those in the debate: 1) If God’s elect, whom He foreknew, are those with faith in Christ then who were the elect in the Old Testament? 2) How would people know they need a Savior before faith in Christ? 3) Who would hear Christ’s voice and follow Him, such that this would always happen without fail?

Way to go dad. I love you. I'm proud of you.
