“It could be said that “Tulip” has a doctrinal progression which may be likened to the golden chain of Romans 8:28‐30, to which Boettner alludes, whereas “Juniper” is not so logically connected. However Romans 8:28‐30 assumes the preceding explicit gospel context of Romans 1‐8, from which “Tulip” has become historically disconnected. Hence “Juniper” is a preferable acrostic representation of sovereign grace truth because it is more essentially comprehensive.” – Barry Horner
