The Sofa Rule proposes Biblical resolutions to seeming paradoxes considered historically by Calvinism, Arminianism, the problem of evil, open theism, and more. The Sofa Rule examines what the Bible says, compares that with popular philosophical views and theological understandings, and then considers why these things matter for everyday life. Designed as a college or seminary textbook, The Sofa Rule is written in a popular style accessible even to those unfamiliar with the controversies, who simply want to understand how God can be sovereign while people have choice at the same time. The Sofa Rule strives to be a practical handbook, challenging its readers to action, and not simply intellectual exercise in philosophy, theology, and worldview.
