discussing the Sovereignty of God:

Spurgeon's Calvinism

Spurgeon’s Calvinism is the Prince of Preachers describing, defending, and applying the doctrines of grace. According to C. H. Spurgeon, “Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else.” And in this volume, Spurgeon precisely and convincingly articulates each of the five points of Calvinism. 

Calvin on Sovereignty, Providence, and Predestination

The doctrine of God has subordinate truths that are easily appreciated by all God’s people and other truths that seem to graduate you into the higher echelons of God’s self-disclosure and its attendant spiritual benefits. God’s sovereignty is in the latter category, and John Calvin, the Swiss Reformer, did a lot to help the church appreciate this truth from Scripture. Joel Beeke does a great service by helping us to understand some of Calvin’s teachings on God’s sovereignty, especially in providence and in predestination. Trust me, this little book is worth every moment you will spend reading it!

“No doctrine in the whole Word of God has more excited the hatred of mankind than the truth of the absolute sovereignty of God. The fact that ‘the Lord reigneth’ is indisputable, and it is this fact that arouses the utmost opposition in the unrenewed human heart.”
Charles Spurgeon
