Calvinism is Back

Here is an excellent and intriguing article about the resurgence of the teaching and preaching of the Doctrines of Grace in Christianity.

One thought on “Calvinism is Back

  1. Interesting article. What I wonder is, is New Calvinism a backlash to Emergence Christianity, as Tickle claims, similar to how the Great Awakening was brought about from the Enlightenment?

    I would tend to say that both are different reactions to the typical seeker-sensitive American evangelical Christianity. New Calvinism looks from the inside-out, fixing the root problems first (proclamation of the actual gospel, authority of Scripture). Emergence Christianity works from outside-in fixing symptomatic problems first (feeding the poor, social justice).

    Of course Emergents would no doubt disagree with me about this.
