This author of this book makes the claim that he can walk the middle ground between Divine Sovereignty over man in all things, man's total depravity, and what he sees as man's freedom from God to choose God unto salvation. What are we free from? Free from God's sovereign election? Free from God? This position is a contradiction. In other words "Can God make a rock big enough he can't pick it up?"
This remains a synergistic relationship to God and nothing but Arminianism in disguise. --We do not deserve to be saved, but God has mercy on whom he has mercy, and who are we to talk back to God?
