Publisher's Summary

The system of theology known as Calvinism has been immensely influential for the past five hundred years, but it is often encountered negatively as a fatalistic belief system that confines human freedom and renders human action and choice irrelevant. Taking us beyond the caricatures, Michael Horton invites us to explore the teachings of Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, by showing us how it is biblical and God-centered, leading us to live our lives for the glory of God.
Horton explores the historical roots of Calvinism, walking readers through the distinctive known as the 'Five Points,' and encouraging us to consider its rich resources for faith and practice in the 21st Century. As a companion to Roger Olson's Against Calvinism, readers will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

For Calvinism

The constant reciting of verse sources for the scriptural portions was very distracting and greatly disturbed and interrupted the flow of the reading.

A must listen for both sides...

Once though myself as an Arminian... now thinking Molinist....

The issues I have with Calvinism weren't all addressed, but this book cleared up a lot of misunderstanding.

My problem is really hearing Calvinists and thinking "yea, I agree with most of the things you say..."

Then hearing Arminians and thinking "I agree with even more of what you say..."

I honestly believe the truth is somewhere in the middle... which Molinism seems to be where it lies...

This will be one of the great questions answered by the Messiah when we are all standing in our glorified bodies before Him...
