Calvinist theology has been debated and promoted for centuries. But is it a theology that should last? Roger Olson suggests that Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, holds an unwarranted place in our list of accepted theologies. In Against Calvinism, readers will find scholarly arguments explaining why Calvinist theology is incorrect and how it affects God’s reputation. Olson draws on a variety of sources, including Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience, to support his critique of Calvinism and the more historically rich, biblically faithful alternative theologies he proposes.

Description

Calvinist theology has been debated and promoted for centuries. But is it a theology that should last? Roger Olson suggests that Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, holds an unwarranted place in our list of accepted theologies. In Against Calvinism, readers will find scholarly arguments explaining why Calvinist theology is incorrect and how it affects God’s reputation. Olson draws on a variety of sources, including Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience, to support his critique of Calvinism and the more historically rich, biblically faithful alternative theologies he proposes.


Addressing what many evangelical Christians are concerned about today—so-called “new Calvinism,” a movement embraced by a generation labeled as “young, restless, Reformed” —Against Calvinism is the only book of its kind to offer objections from a non-Calvinist perspective to the current wave of Calvinism among Christian youth. As a companion to Michael Horton’s For Calvinism, readers will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

Very sound Arminianist theology
This is an excellent book and exposes the necessary conclusions of meticulous providence and the horrendous, even demonic, doctrine of double predestination. Olson is a wonderful teacher and author, here making admirable defense of the Arminianist correction of Calvinist error.

Importance of consistency
This book shows why it is so important to draw our theology from the consistency of scripture and not from western philosophy. So many people today are confused on the teaching of predestination and election because western philosophy has been allowed to muddy the clear understanding of scripture. I equate it to the historical christian understanding of a young earth creation which is understood by all Christians because it was so clear in scripture....that is until Darwinian evolution was introduced and promoted by so called"modern scientific christians", and now everyone is confused and churches are further divided.

Excellent book and quite thorough for it's reasonable length
This book does an excellent job of analyzing and showing via Scripture, logic, reason, philosophy and theology why Calvinism (particulary and specifically the 5 point variety, especially the middle 3 points thereof- UL and I) is an untenable minority view. Highly recommended.
