A little book filled with a lot of sound words. As one who holds to the Doctrines of Grace, I appreciate Rick's book in that it reaffirms those doctrines which I hold dear to. My soul was fed! It was a joy to read this and to now know that it is one that I can heartily recommend to others, particularly one who does not understand the doctrines of grace or to one who wants to more fully understand these biblical truths without being overcome by some of the deeper issues out of them. I know Rick personally and I am thankful for this work he has contributed to deepen our understanding of God's sovereign work in the salvation of man. ( )

In What's So Great About the Doctrines of Grace?, the Rev. Richard D. Rick Phillips shows that the doctrines of grace, those theological tenets more popularly known as the five points of Calvinism, are comforting, faith-strengthening, and humbling teachings. In six short chapters, Rev. Phillips demonstrates conclusively from Scripture that this view of salvation exalts God and makes plain His great love for man, which drove Him to do all that was necessary to redeem a people for Himself. In his opening chapter, Rev. Phillips cites the calling of Isaiah the prophet to show that a proper understanding of the sovereignty of God leads to a willingness to serve, a humble obedience to God s commands, a holy boldness, and a firm reliance on sovereign, saving grace. Then, over the next five chapters, he deals with the five doctrines of grace one by one-total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints providing thorough explanations, answering objections, and showing how the doctrines advance Christian living. What's So Great About the Doctrines of Grace? is a compact, highly readable treasure chest of scriptural wisdom.… (more)
