Doubtless it gives the greatest possible offence to common sense or reason, that God, Who is proclaimed as being full of mercy and goodness, and so on, should of His own mere will abandon, harden and damn men, as though He delighted in the sins and great eternal torments of such poor wretches. It seems an iniquitous, cruel, intolerable thought to think of God; and it is this that has been a stumbling block to so many great men down the ages. And who would not stumble at it? I have stumbled at it myself more than once, down to the deepest pit of despair, so that I wished I had never been made a man.
 
–Martin Luther
(Luther, Martin, The Bondage of the Will, Fleming H. Revell Co., 1957, pg. 217)
 
Whether some Christians actually delight in what is commonly known as Calvinism or not I do not know, but I do know that many struggle with it. This book is for those who struggle. Come and enjoy the Good News of the simple message: God loved the world so much that He sent His Son, not to condemn it, but to save it. It is His pleasure to reconcile all things to Himself through the blood of Christ. He is not willing that any perish, but that all come to repentance.

Other books by David Schonberg include: Ecology and Beyond, Valley of the Voice, and Lessons from Nature.
