Product Description

Few evangelical Christians today understand Reformed theology, even though it has become an immensely influential theological tradition. Recognizing only key terms relating to predestination or the five points, many Christians want a better explanation of the concepts and beliefs that make up a Reformed perspective. What is Reformed Theology? is an introduction to a doctrine that has eluded so many evangelical Christians. And who better to teach about Reformed theology than R. C. Sproul? In thoroughly expounding the foundational doctrines and five points, Sproul asserts the reality of God's amazing grace. For anyone wanting to know more about Reformed theology, this candid book offers a coherent and complete introduction to an established belief. Previously published as Grace Unknown.

    I read the book in 8 days and it was a great read and I definitely learned more about Reformed Theology from it. But when I wanted to get this book I thought that it was filled with Scriptural support for each point, but I was disappointed. The 'Westminister Confession of Faith' is cited frequently, philosophical arguments, Calvin, Augustine, Luther, but I would've loved more Scriptural support for each of the 5 points of Calvinism.

    R.C. Sproul is my favorite author. I love his intellect and insight. This book, however, is a bit of a "heavy" read. I am reading it slowly to absorb what he offers. No matter - I'll read anything Sproul offers.

    "Calvinism," "Covenant Theology," "Reformed Theology"...what does it all mean? How is it distinguished from "Dispensationalism?" Does it really matter? These are questions that often haunt thinking evangelical believers. Where does one even begin find clarity when the Bible seems to support both the reformed and dispensational positions? I would recommend this book. Sproul avoids the pitfall of most theologians who employ dated terms that tend to confuse the 21st-century reader. Although regularly drawing support from Luther, Calvin, and the Westminster Confession, he does so with clear explanation. The first part of the book includes chapters on basic systematic theology (Theology Proper, Bibliology, Soteriology, and Christology), while part two adeptly walks the reader through the five points of Calvinisim (TULIP). Sproul actually renames each of those points in an effort to amplify their meaning from the reformed perspective. His illustrations are vivid and on-point. This book is ideal for both the one just beginning to investigate reformed doctrine, as well as those looking for a brief refresher course.
