The conversation is a mixture of plausible (and in my experience, actual) questions, biblical interpretation, sound reasoning and unapologetic affirmations and it is loaded with sections of biblical texts for further study. I highly recommend this book to those who are honestly seeking answers to thorny questions on such doctrines as the sovereignty of God, election and predestination, the effects and results of sin, etc. Doug Wilson provides a great service in this basic and accessible introduction to the major distinctives of this stream of thought within the Christian church. Wilson is right, these doctrines (words) are not easy but they are true and that is why this book and others like it are so valuable.
Wilson does a fine job of integrating theological ideas into the conversational story he weaves. He relies upon clear and simple analogies and writes in a convincing and effective way.
Highly recommended for those who are seeking to understand (or defend) reformed theology!

Because of the non-threatening but interesting way that Doug Wilson draws the reader into the dialogue, I use these as an "evangelistic tool". I've given out more of these books than I can count...with tremendous results!
This is a great way to approach an Arminian friend with the Reformed faith.
Moves fast. Easy to read. Interesting. Good story.
