Calvinism has an image problem. For far too long it has been synonymous with being argumentative, arrogant, and unloving. Somehow the doctrines of grace often haven’t made those who believe them actually gracious.

Self-confessed recovering, cranky Calvinist, Jeff Medders wonders whether the love of God has been replaced with the love of Calvinism. It’s one thing having the “five points” all worked out in your head, but have they really penetrated your heart?

His warm-hearted, challenging (and surprisingly witty) book reveals how a true understanding of “the five points” fuels a love of Christ and his people that builds others up, rather than tearing them down. He urges readers to be humble and gracious as well as zealous for the truth, to the praise and glory of Christ and his church.

Praise for the Print Edition

If you’re not a Calvinist, this book is for you; and if you are a Calvinist, this book is for you. Jeff Medders explains simply, winsomely, and humbly from a Calvinistic perspective what the Bible teaches about five key doctrines. And he demonstrates throughout that no one truly understands the “doctrines of grace” unless they themselves are gracious and humble. Down-to-earth, often funny, and with a keen knack for illustration, Medders makes plain what biblical Calvinism—Humble Calvinism—looks like in everyday life.

—Donald S. Whitney, Author, Praying the Bible; Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean, SBTS, Louisville

Maybe in another generation the term “humble Calvinism” won’t seem like such an oxymoron. If so, this encouraging and challenging book will have been used by God to help us live up to what we believe.

—Collin Hansen, Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition; author, Young, Restless, and Reformed and Blind Spots

Reformed culture seems to be known for its harshness and lack of grace. Yet Reformed soteriology should create a joyful heart and a deep, glad humility that overflows into compassionate evangelism and graciousness to all. I hope Jeff’s book will be used by God to renew a spirit of gentleness and humility among us, and will encourage those who have rejected these beautiful beliefs to consider them anew.

—Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Dallas; President, Acts 29; author, Take Heart
