- Karl Barth was a PostCalvinist and not an Evangelical Calvinist : February 12, 2016
In 1922, Karl Barth loved John Calvin so much that he wrote a letter to his friend Eduard Thurneysen to confess that he could spent the rest of his life with Calvin alone! (♥) This short letter, which I’ve quoted below, has become so famous that anytime Calvin and […]
- George Hunsinger on the Pathogenicity of Rationalistic Calvinism : July 11, 2015
B. B. Warfield’s famous “The Order of Decrees” chart from The Plan of Salvation is figured above. I’ve colorized the chart so that the darkest swim lanes are those most endorsed by B. B. Warfield (and most exemplifying Rationalistic Calvinism.)
George Hunsinger referenced B. B. Warfield’s famous “Orders of Decrees” chart (see […]
- Bruce McCormack on Double Predestination is not the Central Doctrine of John Calvin and classical Reformed theology : May 19, 2014
Orthodox and Modern: Studies in the Theology of Karl Barth, by Bruce L. McCormack
Friedrich Schleiermacher was a Calvinist, and although he is known as the father of Liberal Protestantism for his definition of god as “a feeling of absolute dependence”, he was nevertheless a Calvinist and John Calvin was his […]
- B.B. Warfield against Amyrauldism (Hypothetical Universalism) : January 31, 2014
Moïse Amyraut (1596 – 1664) was a Huguenot, as my own ancestors were as well, and this name means French Calvinist. Moses Amyraut was of the school of Saumer, and this man is interesting because of his modified Calvinism, that allowed for Hypothetical Universalism and hence became the eponymous founder of Amyrauldism.
- Second Council of Orange against the Semi-Pelagians : June 27, 2012
Saint Caesarius of Arles presided overthe Second Council of Orange 529 A.D.
The Second Council of Orange (529A.D.) is an anomaly in Denzinger’s Sources of Catholic Dogma because it is a surprising twist and turn where not only the Pelagians are anathamized, but also the Semi-pelagians! The Second Council of Orange was […]
- Freedom of the Will by Jonathan Edwards : November 14, 2009
I purchased and read the new Yale paperback edition of Jonathan Edward's The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Vol. 1: Freedom of the Will. Normally, each volume of the Yale Edition of Edward's Works costs over $100! but recently three of the volume were rele...
- The Mortification of Sin by John Owens (Review) : July 1, 2009
I highly recommend The Mortification of Sin by John Owen with a foreword by J.I. Packer. The longer title of Owen's book is On the Mortification of Sin in Believers, and it is available online in entirety for free (here and here). It's another short an...
- Christ and Culture Revisited by D.A. Carson (Review) : February 12, 2009
D.A. Carson is arguably the greatest N.T. Theologian alive today. Carson has published over 50 books and this week I read one of his latest books: Christ and Culture Revisited (April 2008) and I highly recommend this book! D.A. Carson revisits H. Richa...
- Jonathan Edwards Biography : July 25, 2008
I'm currently reading Jonathan Edwards : A Life by George M. Marsden. I'm rarely interested in biographies, but if you're like me, then you should make this one exception and read this book! The book begins by describing New England in the 1700's -- an...
