In Salvation and Sovereignty
, Kenneth Keathley opens new discussion on Calvinism's five points by introducing the theology of an early Reformation idea known as Molinism. Keathley argues that only three of Calvinism's five TULIP points can be truly be rationalized when using Scripture and attempts instead to build upon a new acronym known as ROSES:
Radical depravity, Overcoming grace, Sovereign election, Eternal life, Singular redemption
Through a proper understanding of Molinism, readers who have found unbiblical Calvinism's points of "Limited Atonement" and "Irresistible Grace", will find reassurance in the assertion that God's sovereignty is still sound with an equal emphasis on human freedom.
