Problem Texts for Sovereign Grace: Rooting Arminianism Out of Every Verse
Problem Texts for Sovereign Grace provides both believers, and opponents, of the doctrine of Sovereign Grace with a Bible study outline which addresses and properly interprets a comprehensive list of over 150 Bible verses that are either difficult to reconcile with other verses which clearly teach sovereign grace, or are commonly misinterpreted to support decisional regeneration, works-based salvation, etc. The goal of this book is to root Arminianism out every verse.
If you believe in Sovereign Grace, you surely have heard questions or comments like these.
What about John 3:16
The Bible says that Jesus died for the whole world. (1Jo 2:2)
The Bible says "whosover will." (Rev 22:17)
God is not willing that any should perish. (2Pe 3:9)
God will have all men to be saved. (1Ti 2:4)
This book will show you how these verses, and nearly 150 others which Arminians use, reconcile with (rather than contradict) all the verses in the Bible that teach that God sovereignly saves only His elect whom He hath chosen.

With careful definitions of words to elucidate the Holy Spirit's message and comparative analysis from other scriptures, Pastor Wagner's perceptive insights are instructive, inspiring and convicting."
Pastor Tim Boffey - The Cincinnati Church, Cincinnati, OH
"I found this to be an excellent introduction to the study of Proverbs in general and Proverbs 1 in particular. It can be used as a commentary, but also most profitably as a verse by verse daily meditation. Pastor Wagner gives you plenty of “meat” while commenting on each verse and comparing each verse with other scriptures that support its teaching. He also often brings forth examples from other parts of the Bible that illustrate the lesson found in a verse. The understanding of a passage begins with its individual words and Pastor Wagner defines many of the words found in the text so the sense of the text is made plain and the verses are clearly explained and easily understood. When you have finished his commentary on Proverbs 1, you will have a greater understanding of this most important passage that introduces the importance of following Wisdom’s teaching and the danger and destruction that accompany ignoring Wisdom’s way. I look forward to reading and learning from his continued study in the book of Proverbs."
Pastor Phil Jonker - The Grand Rapids Church, Grand Rapids, MI
"Pastor Wagner has done a marvelous job of explaining the purpose of the Proverbs, the method of understanding the Proverbs, the requirements for understanding the Proverbs as well as the insight into the meaning of those Proverbs under consideration. This is a first-class presentation and one that belongs in every pastor’s library."
Pastor James L. Henderson – The Lakeland Church, Lakeland, FL

"Pastor Chad Wagner is a diligent Bible student, especially of the book of Proverbs. His continual reading and in-depth study of Proverbs are evident in his book Get Wisdom Get Understanding. From his book one sees that Pastor Wagner is a man of God who has heeded the call of the apostle Paul in 1Timothy 4:15: "Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly unto them, that they profiting may appear to all" (1Timothy 4:15)."
Pastor Ben Mott - The Detroit Church, Detroit, MI
"In this second volume of "Get Wisdom, Get Understanding," Pastor Wagner continues to lay down a solid, straight roadway for the believer's journey. It is a sound, practical exposition that honors the Bible's own internal rules for understanding its message. The Author of Holy Scripture knows best how it should be studied, and Pastor Wagner shows that adherence to those principles yields excellent spiritual fruit."
Pastor Tim Boffey - The Cincinnati Church, Cincinnati, OH
"You could buy a big book by some famous guy with big words and long chapters and not get much out of it, or you could buy this little book by Pastor Wagner and in a week or less change your life by applying the principles within. Pastor Wagner concisely breaks down the second chapter of Proverbs using only word definitions and supporting scriptures rather than man's opinion. The chapters are short enough to use in family Bible times or would make a nice gift for a young adult or graduation present."
