Overview

Calvin vs. Wesley: Bringing Belief in Line with Practice by Don Thorsen

The theology "de jour" originates withJohn Calvin, with an emphasis on “the elect” and"sovereign will of God.”So much Calvinism saturates our air that Christians may not know there is another way of thinking about their faith, one well represented by Wesley.But no matter what people think, manyact in ways that promiseto change the world by offering grace andhope but alsoby helping to provide food and shelter to hurting people. In other words, they believe like Calvinists but they live like Wesleyans.

This book is not intended to put downCalvin but to point tosignificant differences betweenCalvinand Wesley. Eachwrote about major tenets of the church: who God is and what God's will is for us; the place of Scripture; the atonement of Christ; the role of human responsibility; the work of God’s grace, the relation of the church and world;and how these beliefscan connect to how people practice their faith. But Calvin and Wesley were different,and following their prescriptions will lead us down different paths.
