Excellent examination of dozens of the favourite Arminian 'proof texts', with a faithful and Biblical exegesis of each. Highly recommended for Calvinists everywhere!

Beware the print quality 24 April 2010
By David S. Mohler - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I do not dispute Gill's work one bit: a rich work. That's not at issue here at all.

The product description for this book states that it is a reproduction with the likelihood of visible anomalies. No problem there. But this reproduction in particular is a travesty: it is one of the worst-quality scan-and-print jobs I've seen. Speaking as one who works in the digital imaging field, this appears to have been reproduced without any evidence of high-end scanning equipment or quality control. Some pages are skewed, images did not half-tone (and came out almost solid black)...very poor. Save your money and get a PDF version online.

Cause of God and Truth By John Gill 23 Feb 2006
By Bradley Guildner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
One of the best reference books supporting the Doctrines of Grace (Calvinism) in this millenium. It is an essential for witnessing to those pesky Arminians about the True, Living and Sovereign God of all things. This book has all kinds of ways to cross-reference Scriptures with the subjects and vice-versa. It is the most helpful tool I have found on the Doctrines of Grace. It even has references to the early church writers and their ideas on absolute predestination,unconditional election,

peculiar redemption,original sin,efficacius grace, etc. A fine buy for all of its help. Don't be caught without it.

Try and find the Primitive Baptist edition as the print is larger than The Sovereign Grace Publisher edition. Both are hardbacks. There is a paperback edition by GO Publcations and Mr. Ella which is a biography even though it bears the name of "The Cause of God and Truth". I own the PBL and SGP editions and often give loved ones this book for very special occasions. Elder Bradley R. Guildner

my mistake 20 Aug 2012
By Michael S. Meadows - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mistake ... I should have read the description closer prior to buying. This looks as if it is a photo-copy of Gill's original book (the writing is even the old KJV 1611-style wording). Difficult to read and some pages poorly copied. Someone is making a lot of money for very little effort. Do not be fooled as I was, look around and buy a real updated version of this great work.

An Excellent Defense of the Reformed Faith 19 Aug 2006
By Hermes - Published on
Format: Hardcover
John Gill was a Reformed Baptist, and in The Cause of God and Truth, he deals especially with those texts which some raise in opposition to Reformed doctrine. Gill carefully shows the biblical basis for the Reformed view of those texts in question.

This book is an excellent reference resource due to the careful, thorough indexing of all Scripture references in the volume.

Make sure that when you contemplate purchase of the Kindle e-book version you pay the extra money for the entry that does have an active-linked Table of Contents. At the time when I purchased this product, the product I purchased had no active-linked Table of Contents and the active-linked Table of Contents version had yet not been released. Because of the massive content of data in the entry, it was necessary for me on my initial progress through the book to develop a separate computer spread-sheet so that I could later more readily identify the location of chapter and each section. That spread-sheet involved 285 entries of chapters and sections.

Quotes from John Gill include:

"The doctrine of particular redemption is the doctrine of the Scriptures. Christ died not for all men, but for some only; who are called his people, his sheep, his church, unless all men can be thought to be the people, sheep, and church of Christ."

"...forsaking sin, and turning to the Lord at first conversion, or returning to him after backslidings, which perhaps may be here meant, are not owing to the power of man, but to the efficacious grace of God. None can truly forsake sin, or heartily turn to the Lord, but such who are influenced by the Spirit of God; hence says Ephraim, Turn thou me, and I shall be turned. (Jeremiah 31:18)"

"...I firmly believe that Christ died for all the elect of God, and them only; that, by his death, he has cured for them actual pardon, reconciliation and salvation; and, that in consequence of the absolute and unconditional covenant of grace being ratified and confirmed by his blood, faith and repentance are bestowed upon and wrought in these persons, not as conditions but blessings of that covenant; in which way they are brought to the full enjoyment of that salvation Christ has obtained for them."

"...the work of grace or conversion, is an internal one, wholly owing to the efficacious grace of God, and wrought in the soul by a supernatural, irresistible, and insuperable power, in the production of which man is purely passive..."

"...such is the corruption of human nature, derived from Adam, and such man's disability, contracted by it, that without the special grace of God he can do nothing spiritually good, and only that which is evil..."

"I own, that election is a foundation of the saints' final perseverance, but it is not the only thing on which it is founded; nor does this show the inconsistency of two of our arguments for perseverance, taken from the prayers of the saints, and the intercession of Christ, as is intimated; since the saints may pray, as Christ did (John 17:1, 5), for that which God has absolutely decreed, from all eternity, shall come to pass. And though we grant that it is from the promise, yet not purely from the promise of God, that true believers cannot fall away; for though we own that the new creature is imperfect, yet affirm that such is the nature, strength, and firmness of true grace, that it can never perish."
