The system of theology known as Calvinism has been immensely influential for the past five hundred years, but it is often encountered negatively as a fatalistic belief system that confines human freedom and renders human action and choice irrelevant. Taking us beyond the caricatures, Michael Horton invites us to explore the teachings of Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, by showing us how it is biblical and God-centered, leading us to live our lives for the glory of God. Horton explores the historical roots of Calvinism, walking readers through the distinctive known as the “Five Points,” and encouraging us to consider its rich resources for faith and practice in the 21st Century. As a companion to Roger Olson’s Against Calvinism, readers will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

If you enjoy reading theology, laymen or not, get this book and the companion volume, Againsr Calvinism, and treat yourself to the striking contrast between someone with nothing new to say and one gifted and refreshingly humble in his discussion of the things of God. Horton's respect for his subject and his reader are so refreshing. And as becomes clear quickly, this guy knows what he is talking about and solidly refutes and exposes his "opponents. This guy is the real deal.
