There are a lot of misunderstanding and misrepresentations of the doctrines of grace also nicknamed "the five points of Calvinism". It is much easier to build a straw man (i.e. hyper-Calvinism) and knock it down than to study the history and exegetical work behind these doctrinal statements. As you know I hold firmly to the "five solas of the Reformation" and understand the "doctrines of grace" to represent a right interpretation of Scripture. It is a systematic presentation of Biblical theology. Questions are often posed to me about these doctrines concerning prayer and evangelism from people who are trying to reconcile what they are learning from Scripture with what they have (usually erroneously) learned from their religious tradition. Recently Voddie Baucham responded to such a question and his response was, while not exhaustive, clear and concise. Follow the link below and hopefully you will find this helpful.
