Product Description

In 2009, Time magazine named "The New Calvinism" as one of the 10 ideas Changing the World Now . Minister's such as John piper and Mark Driscoll are among the spearheads of this movement that is growing rapidly in Christianity.

Why is this so? Well, while it may be certain that Calvinsim's recognition of human limitation, frailty, and imperfection resonates strongly with young postmodern disillusioned by a hyper-belief in humanities own ability to save the world; a belief that was in many ways nurtured by liberal Protestantism. Today it is different, in a world defined by the 20th century, human optimism about its own ability and certainty seem displaced, and Calvinism addresses those trends meaningfully.

This book The Five Points of Calvinism: A Study Guide Edwin Palmer examines the "doctrines of grace" by examining them biblically, theologically, and to some extent, philosophically. It serves to vet out the doctrines, examine their true shape, and their true implications. But palmer also provides an apologetic by explicitly and powerfully refuting misconstrues of the doctrines by both opponents and proponents of Calvinism who have taken the doctrines too far.

To say the least, this book is an excellent tool for learning about the doctrines, whether you agree with them or not. If you do, it is an excellent discipleship guide that will increase dramatically your understanding of the faith, and the long line of Calvinist believers. It will be an outstanding tool for church small groups of any kind, and also any study group.

    It is cause for excitement to see a new edition of this great modern classic of theology.In 1978 I was given this book to read and as an Arminian didn't know anything about Calvinism. What I discovered in the pages of this little book changed my entire view of the Christian life and gave me assurance about my salvation in Christ. I had not realized how totally confused (or rather taught incorrectly) I was about the Bible's teaching on salvation. I read the book and had many questions and was able to write to Dr. Palmer. He did write back and encouraged me and was so gracious and was able to suggest other books as well as lead me to the Bible.This book is a series of sermons on the five points of Calvinism. They are clear, incredibly Biblical and life changing. Dr. Palmer had a doctorate in Greek, was at one time a professor at Westminster Seminary and was the General Secretary of the NIV Bible project. He went to Glory in 1980 (there is a dedication page to him in the NIV Study Bible).If you want to understand reformed doctrine here is a book that will become a treasured friend. I have read it at least eight times. It is a masterpiece of theology and very understandable.
