Jay M. Bylsma’s new novel, THE REPROBATE, remarkably demonstrates that truth can be found in fiction. In the book, a young graduate student encounters an enigmatic nursing home resident who challenges his faith by asking a single question that propels him on a meaningful faith journey.

There’s very good scriptural basis for limited atonement. However, I would take issue with those who say that universal salvation is completely untenable. That’s not to be honest with the Scriptures.

THE REPROBATE by Jay M. Bylsma, and published by Green Ivy Publishing, is a compelling novel that examines the theology that lead to the proposition that the grace of God might be available to the devout of other faiths. Are the gates of Heaven open just a crack more than for born-again Christians? Does the Bible support that conclusion and give credence to the sub-title of the book, “Liberal Christians have proof texts, too.”

THE REPROBATE brilliantly weaves the story in and out of serious theological questions, skillfully using the Bible to substantially bolster both sides of the theological debate.

This is a book for Christians who have all the answers, Christians who are looking for answers, Christians who don’t know what the questions are, and non-Christians who wonder about Christians.

Jay M. Bylsma is a writer, singer, inventor, corporate executive, college professor, and gourmet cook. He has a BBA and MBA from the University of Michigan, and has enjoyed a career as a corporate executive as well as being involved in serious theological studies with the real reprobate for over 30 years.
