Book Overview
Understanding Calvinism in our hearts as well as in our heads. Self-confessed recovering, cranky Calvinist, Jeff Medders wonders whether the love of God has been replaced with the love of Calvinism. It's one thing having the five points all worked out in your head, but have they really penetrated your heart? His warm-hearted, challenging (and surprisingly witty) book reveals how a true understanding of the five points fuels a love of Christ and his people that builds others up, rather than tearing them down. Medders urges readers to be humble and gracious as well as zealous for the truth, to the praise and glory of Christ and his church. For some Calvinism is synonymous with being argumentative, arrogant, and unloving. Author Jeff Medders shows how taking Calvinism to heart should fuel a love of Christ and his people that builds others up, rather than tearing them down.
