The Joy of Calvinism

I am thoroughly enjoying Greg Forster's The Joy of Calvinism, and hope everyone reading this post will buy the book. It's important as it seeks to erase the caricature that is often drawn of Calvinism, while painting a portrait of our theology that is biblical, beautiful, historic, and truly experiential. Those who are not reformed should jump on this to obtain a healthy understanding of what Calvinism (or at least basic Reformed soteriology) is really all about. But, perhaps more importantly those who are reformed will benefit from this book by being reminded of the humble joy the doctrines of grace should produce. In my case my early years in the Reformed faith were characterized by pride. This was not the fruit of Calvinism, but the byproduct of a heart that was not yet grasping the theology I was reading. I was missing the forrest for the trees. God was gracious in directing me to a few specific books that helped me to see much of what Forster writes in The Joy of Calvinism.

Get this book now. You won't be disappointed.
