David GoughAlexandria, VAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A clear and concise introduction to CalvinismJune 16, 2014David GoughAlexandria, VAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5No greater need exists within today's church than for its rediscovery of the reformed doctrines of grace. And while that subject can be extensive and its pursuit intensive, its most fundamental tenets can be reduced to what are frequently referred to as "the five points of Calvinism." The "TULIP" acronym (total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints) elicits emotional responses on both sides of the soteriological aisle, frequently producing mischaracterizations and faulty understanding. In his small (94 pages) but helpful book, John Piper cuts to the chase and lays out a clear presentation of "The Five Points." He begins with a brief historical overview, proceeds to explain them concisely, and concludes with his testimony and that of others who have blazed the trail of Calvinism before him. This small volume would be useful as introduction to the subject for those just beginning to consider it, as well as brief rebuttal to those who oppose it. It also would serve as a helpful launch pad for small groups wishing to discuss the doctrines the grace. As with all of his writings, Piper is thorough without being needlessly verbose. The book's brevity is its strength. Those wishing to dig deeper will be motivated to do so by first reading this introduction.

The chapter on limited atonement is particularly helpful. I highly recommend it for any Christian but particularly those in positions of spiritual leadership in the local church.
