COMPILATIONS OF WORKS THEMATICALLY
This one is in the field of
PREDESTINATION AND FREEWILL
First, this was the Other Trilogy which grew to become a
but now being six, is a
coded as the PH, Predestination Hexad.
It has this acronym, as the title of the set is in fact,
ON PREDESTINATION and
LIBERTY and NECESSITY,
RESPONSIBILITY, DUTY and CREATIVITY
This is a glorious field where the hand of God may be seen in its complete
of the answers to the questions of time with the perspective of eternity,
logically unique in resolution, and this because the Bible as the word of God, has divulged it. Because man is made by God for God,
there can be no answer to ultimacies except from Him.
That it is so is one more verification, with no competitors.

The Love of Grace and the Grace of Love
and contrasting considerations popular in callow confusions
This fifth volume is formed by reducing the size, hitherto perhaps 1300 pages, of volume two, and setting what were its appendices with what now requires its place in the form of three new chapters, from Anguish, Ecstasy and the Mastery of the Messiah, commencing with Chapters 8 and 9.
These chapters deal with Wesley and Calvin, Whitefield and Arminianism in an historical setting, but with systematic intent, and resolve the issues involved by reference to the scriptures of light, the Bible. They have arisen from a letter of enquiry, of a lively character. With Chapter 10, this new material moves the wonder of freedom in grace, and of grace in freedom, matching the superb wisdom of God in all things in cohesion, coherence and control. Thus these chapters have much to do with the grace of love and the love of grace revealed and found in the Lord.
The Spiritual Sagacity of Predestination in Love
FOREKNOWLEDGE AND CHRISTIAN FAITH
In this volume, there is much attention given to the heights and wonders of a freedom that soars, yet is not autonomy, a foreknowledge which selects, but is not a 'horrible decree', to use Calvin's term, a predestination in love and the simple fact that these biblical concepts are an apologetic triumph for biblical Christianity, for the lost who seek and for the insecure who long.
They are drawn from several chapters in other works, published since the fifth volume of the PQ or Predestination Quintet saw the light of day, with provision for further additions, one more being presented with this publication.
Now it is necessary to change that name PQ to PH, as in chemistry, where it refers to hydrogen ion concentration, the most acidic as ph 1, and the more alkaline assembling itself after ph 7. Here however, since this is not chemistry, it is a matter of PREDESTINATION HEXAD, for the latter term can mean simply a group of six. It is no longer the PQ. That is the new name for what is now a six volume set on predestination, freewill, responsibility, love, justice, judgment and duty.
This set, the Predestination Hexad, now appears to cover something like 600,000 words, and enables a close attention to this glorious reality in the ways of the Lord.
