Following the publication of my book The Gospel Offer is Free â€“ my reply to George M.Ellaâ€™s The Free Offer & The Call of the Gospel â€“ I received some friendly correspondence from Alan Clifford, including a copy of his Amyraut Affirmed. The point at issue was this: How could I believe in both a free offer and particular redemption? And why, in my book, had I not dealt with those biblical texts which (seem to)1 speak of universal redemption?2 My reply was twofold. First, since Ella had not raised the issue with me, I had not delved into the matter. Secondly, I do not think the extent of the atonement has any bearing on the free offer, and I had said as much in my book.
