Overview

Calvinism is on the rise both in seminary classrooms and in church life. Yet the weaknesses that have plagued it historically remain relevant today; in particular, a view of salvation that can weaken gospel presentations.

In Calvinism: A Biblical and Theological Critique, editors David Allen and Steven Lemke lead a team of top-notch scholars in carefully critiquing five-point Calvinism. Sections are devoted to its core commitments, historical issues, biblical and theological issues, and ministry issues, providing a wide-ranging assessment of Calvinism’s foundations and implications.

Fair-minded, deeply informed, and focused on the gospel, Calvinism: A Biblical and Theological Critique will benefit students, pastors, lay leaders, and anyone wanting to better understand the downsides of Calvinist teaching.

    Before purchasing I'd like to see who wrote the articles in this book, but the table of contents page is not part of the preview. Can you add the table of contents to the preview?
