Publisher's Summary

If God is sovereign, how can I be free to choose? But if God is not sovereign, how can he be God? Is it possible to reconcile God's sovereignty with human choice? This is one of the most perplexing theological questions. It's also one of the most personal. In Hand in Hand, Randy Alcorn says that the traditional approach to this debate has often diminished our trust in God and his purposes. Instead of making a one-sided argument from select verses, Alcorn examines the question in light of all Scripture. By exploring what the whole Bible says about divine sovereignty and human choice, hand in Hand helps us...

Best reconciliation of the subject ever heard

He presents the extreme views as they should be presented and calls us to understand the scripture for what it says with out allowing bias to overcome truth.

Really helpful explanations; nuanced & respectful

This is the third book of Alcorn's that I have read. I especially like that he is the reader, for I can hear his heart in the intonation. There is a genuineness about Randy--he is kind, thoughtful, and so respectful. His messages are rooted in scripture, but never preachy or heavy-handed. This book really helped me to understand the differences between Arminian and Calvinist viewpoints. Yet more importantly--and this is the thoughtful, even-handedness of the book and Alcorn's unique ability to analyze and present information--this book shows the commonalities. The Arminian believes in pre-venient grace, and the Calvinist doesn't say "well, God chose, so I can just stay home and don't need to spend time witnessing for Christ."

I loved the nuance of this book--its depth and thoughtfulness. Really appreciate Randy Alcorn. His approach, while rooted in scripture, has a healthy openness that is not dogmatic. When we as Christians can have conversations of this nature, labels fall away, and the heart and mind of God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit fall on us to convey deeper truths.
