Overview

What impact is the Calvinist/non-Calvinist debate having on the Southern Baptist Convention today? This book holds a theological conversation between followers of Christ about issues on which they often disagree. And while such controversial points of doctrine cannot be ignored, neither should they put up impenetrable walls between groups that are committed to the same essential Christian beliefs.

Calvinism: A Southern Baptist Dialogue brings together new presentations from noted Southern Baptists including Daniel Akin, Tom Ascol, David Dockery, Charles Lawless, and Ed Stetzer that address misperceptions, stereotypes, and caricatures of the debate over Reformed theology. Each strives to speak the truth in love and humility while seeking clarity in the presentation of the Gospel, improving the health of our churches, and seeking the kingdom of Christ above all.

Endorsements:

"What do we have to agree on?  The doctrines of what it means for us to be lost, and of how we are saved could not be more important.  This book explores how much we can disagree over these things and still work together.  If you care about both evangelistic cooperation and doctrinal integrity, this book is a book for you."

—Mark Dever, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and president of 9Marks.org
