You Did Not Choose Me, But I Chose You
Why We Believe and What We Are Supposed to Do About It
Do we choose God or does God choose us? Passages throughout the New Testament either assume or directly state the point that the believers were chosen to believe. Yet that idea is foreign within the modern context that sees belief in God as a victory of personal choice. In "You Did Not Choose Me, But I Chose You," author Peter Zelinski explores the premise that the knowledge of God we experience as belief is something God has awakened within us. That premise reorients our understanding of our lives in this world and the life to come. As the book explains, God is transforming believers by renewing their minds. In doing so, he is realizing an objective described for us in the Bible, an objective pursued without variation through both the Old Testament and the New.
