While I was unable to locate this book on Amazon, it can be purchased from the publisher’s website here. It claims to completely resolve the problem of evil, though it unfortunately resorts to deterministic Calvinism, arbitrary Divine Command Theory, and a general spirit of “shut up and just accept it” to do so. It may present an internally coherent philosophy, but its system leaves out whole swaths of reality, intuition, and Biblical teachings. It also fails to interact with its strongest Biblical and philosophical rivals. An utter disappointment.
The Trinity Foundation is a Calvinist think tank and apologetics organization founded in 1977 and headed by John W. Robbins.
The foundation publishes reprints of the writings of Gordon Clark as well as other books, lectures, essays, and a monthly newsletter. It also hosts conferences and seminars.

Girardeau compares Calvinism and Evangelical Arminianism with respect to election, reprobation, justification, and related issues, and finds Evangelical Arminianism wanting. He goes about this by stating and proving each Calvinist doctrine in manners creedal, Biblical, and philosophical, then defending it against objections. His purpose is to glorify God with his mind by championing His sovereignty and rebutting false doctrine. Being presuppositional, this book strives mostly to demonstrate the coherence of Calvinism and less to ground it in beliefs that Calvinists and Arminians hold in common. As such it will be received more amiably by those who already espouse Calvinism and are looking to research its creedal and Biblical support.

Grudem’s Systematic is a very clean, concise, and convenient reference work on Christian theology in general, and the Reformed tradition in particular. Each entry includes references to hymns, scriptures, and even notes on where to find entries on the same doctrine in virtually every other Christian tradition. While no philosopher, Grudem proves a decently clear, accessible, and coherent thinker throughout. Linked resource is not necessarily the same edition as what’s cited on this blog.
