Time magazine has put The New Calvinism as one of the top three ideas shaping the world at the moment. It’s a very interesting article and well worth the read. I think its a fair assessment of the doctrine, and records some changing trends in American Christianity.
Another Time magazine article – Calvinist Comeback, has an interesting comment on the decline of liberal theology in the face of modern Calvinism.
Thanks to Between Two Worlds for spotting these. Enjoy!
It is refreshing to see the media comment on theological issues without being completely dismissive. It is even better that the teachings of Calvin are becoming more influential. While we rejoice in this, we do not seek to lift up the name of Calvin, but Jesus. Calvin can give us deep insights into the word, but better to be captivated by the Living Word.
Thanks also to tangible thoughts for commenting on my blog. After three months reading through the Institutes its great to see God blessing his people as we study this classic together. You can read the post here.
