Overview

W. Robert Godfrey has written this personal story of how he came to Reformed Christianity to show the “value and vitality” of Calvinism in an individual’s life.

Godfrey’s journey started when as a teenager he first heard of Calvinism. Sharing his heart and his sense of humor, he describes his first experience with a Reformed congregation, his introduction to God’s inspired Word, and his discovery of biblical worship.

“For too many, Calvinism has seemed either an intellectual exercise in theology or an inherited religious commitment,” Godfrey writes. “I believe that Reformed Christianity is the best fullest form of biblical religion. And with that provocative claim, I hope that you will read and reflect on what follows.”

Editorial Reviews

JOEL NEDERHOOD
For those puzzled by the ongoing grip of Calvinism on many serious believers, Godfrey’s journey from an Alameda, California’ high school swimming pool to the biblical truth we call Calvinism will be an eye-opener . . . and possibly a turning point in their own lives.
Michael S. Horton
Although written in autobiographical form, this book is really about God. Regardless of one’s theological background, any believer can read with great edification this hymn to God’s grace in Christ from one whom many of us have been privileged to know as a mentor, example, churchman, and friend.
