Publisher's Summary

Calvinist theology has been debated and promoted for centuries. But is it a theology that should last? Roger Olson suggests that Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, holds an unwarranted place in our list of accepted theologies. In Against Calvinism, readers will find scholarly arguments explaining why Calvinist theology is incorrect and how it affects God's reputation.
Olson draws on a variety of sources, including Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience, to support his critique of Calvinism and the more historically rich, biblically faithful alternative theologies he proposes.Addressing what many evangelical Christians are concerned about today - so-called 'new Calvinism,' a movement embraced by a generation labeled as 'young, restless, Reformed' - Against Calvinism is the only book of its kind to offer objections from a non-Calvinist perspective to the current wave of Calvinism among Christian youth. As a companion to Michael Horton's For Calvinism, readers will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

Great articulation

Olson explains in great detail the Biblical and logical inconsistencies with Calvinism. He also defends Arminianism well when needed. However, the focus is set on the errors of Calvinism. I recommend this to book to all Christians. Many of today's churches do not go into detail about doctrine. I think it is important to know what you believe and why. It is particularly important because of the injustice that Calvinism does to God's character. Olson does not seek to attack Calvinists but Calvinism. Good read.

Great Narrator, ok content.

The Narrator made this book enjoyable. However, the book was not very exegetical at all. There were few Scriptures dealt with, and those few were dealt with redundantly. The book was ok, a few good highlights and analogies, but for the length of the book I don't feel like I am walking away with much information.
