The story of the "great supper" in Luke 14:16-24 is one of the most instructive of all the parables. It was originally spoken by Christ with special reference to the Jews, and represented their rejection of the Gospel and the subsequent calling of the Gentiles. But it also teaches us what God has done and is still doing in pursuance of His gracious designs in regard to this guilty and perishing world. As such, this parable provides a clear and beautiful illustration of the so-called "doctrines of grace," more commonly known as "Calvinism."--Http://www.solafidepublishers.com.
First published in 1941, this is the Fifth Edition of Loraine Boettner’s 1932 publication The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination and is widely considered to be one of the 20th-century’s most reasoned explanations of the sovereignty of God and the Reformed interpretation of salvation.
“THE purpose of this book is not to set forth a new system of theological thought, but to give a restatement to that great system which is known as the Reformed Faith or Calvinism, and to show that this is beyond all doubt the teaching of the Bible and of reason.”—Loraine Boettner, Introduction
“Whoever really wants to know what Calvinism teaches cannot do better than to read this book from cover to cover”.—United Presbyterian magazine
