Humble Calvinism: And If I Know the Five Points, But Have Not Love …
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.
