Review: Lectures on Calvinism

User Review  - Jacob Stubbs - Goodreads

Review: Lectures on Calvinism

User Review  - Matthew Lamaster - Goodreads

Good principles and logic, good understanding of Calvnistic theology. Unfortunately, it is applied to a Hegelian hermeneutic of history. His apologetic is that Calvinism is the most developed version of religion in modernity, not a very good argument if you're not a Hegelian. Read full review

User Review  - John Yelverton - Goodreads

An absolutely amazing look at Calvinism and how it effects not just your religious life, but your entire worldview. Be warned that it is extremely dated and smacks of European superiority in parts, but the good parts far outweigh the bad. Read full review
