“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one coming to Me I will never cast out....No man is able to come to Me, unless the Father, who sent Me, draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.” These statements found in the sixth chapter of John’s gospel are among some of the most striking and challenging statements made by the Lord Jesus Christ. Dr. James White implores the Christian to listen to the words of Christ anew and to ponder them in the light of the wonderful grace and sovereignty of God in salvation. If we fail to study to show ourselves approved, especially as regards these vital truths, our Christian life may well become one characterized by confusion and erroneous notions about God’s plan of salvation and the Gospel. In Drawn By The Father, you will learn what Scripture teaches about these matters and better appreciate the Father’s will, the Son’s work for, and promises to His people, and man’s role in the eternal plan of redemption. You can come to a settled conviction and a thankful realization of the marvelous love of God for His people.

Simple But Consise Treatment of Irrestiable Grace! Dr. James White is known for his defense against Mormonism and other cults. However, Dr. White is also a strong defender of Calvinism. In this book, Dr. White takes John 6:35-45 and exegetes the passage to reveal God's irrestiable grace. In the book he also takes time to answer common questions about the doctrine of irrestiable grace and shows how the text can not mean anything but that we are saved only by the sovereign drawing of the heavenly Father. For those interested in studying a Calvinistic approach to John 6:35-45, I would highly recommend this book. --Roy Ingle (Augusta, GA)
Outstanding exegetical study! In my opinion, James White is one of the foremost defenders and experts on the reformation. Books like Scripture Alone truly demonstrate this fact and Drawn by the Father is no exception. This small 64 page book is an exegetical study of probably the strongest passage in regards to the Doctrines of Grace in all of Scripture. But don't let the small number of pages fool you: this book is full of meat and enough arguments to refute any claim posed by anti-Calvinists. It is highly inconceivable that any anti-Calvinist could read such a work and still deny the doctrines of Grace. The only objection I could imagine to this work would be-- Well, you're just taking John 6 out of context because over here in John 3:16 it says...blah blah blah. And this is the problem with so many anti-Calvinists. They refuse to deal with the text. And with a work such as this, it would be very hard for anyone to get around these profound truths. Something else I appreciated was the devotional value of this work. James truly writes from his heart and his love for the Word really becomes apparent. The... fact (is) that anti-Calvinists have brought up objections to Calvinist interpretations of John 6:35-45, although they are few and far between... (but) Dr. White avoided this for a reason; maybe to avoid making this an exhaustive work, so as to appeal to laymen. So for those who would like to get a more exhaustive look at the Doctrines of Grace, I would recommend reading The Sovereign Grace of God also by Dr. James White. --M. Felker (Dawsonville, GA)
An excellent book - highly recommended! This book, though small, is very well written, as are all of the books I've read by James White. He goes into an indepth study of John 6:35-45. He shows so clearly, that it is indeed God who draws His elect unto Himself. Another thing I like about his writings is that when he quotes from another source, he has a number by it, and it's easily found in the Endnotes. I highly recommend this book. --The Lord Reigns! A.
