The theological system known as Calvinism is often caricatured as harsh, dour, and illogical. But as Dr. Joel R. Beeke argues in this important new book, this image could not be further from the truth. Beeke, a pastor, educator, editor, and prolific author, shows instead that Calvinism is a theology that is firmly rooted in Scripture and works its way out into every area of the believer’s life. He aims to “cover the intellectual and spiritual emphases of Calvinism, the way it influences the church and everyday living, and its ethical and cultural implications.”

In this comprehensive survey of Reformed Christianity, Dr. Beeke and eight fellow contributors offer twenty-eight chapters that:

  • trace the history of Calvinism
  • explore its key doctrinal tenets, such as the so-called five points of Calvinism and the solas of the Protestant Reformation
  • reveal how Calvinists have sought to live in devotion to God
  • and survey Calvinism’s influence in the church and in the world at large.

In the end, the book asserts that the overriding goal of Calvinism is the glory of God. Saturated with Scripture citations and sprinkled with quotations from wise giants of church history, this book presents Calvinism in a winsome and wondrous fashion.

This is without a doubt one of the most important books one could read in order to get a comprehensive understanding of the historic Reformed faith. Practically all facets of the Reformed faith are covered. Dr. Joel Beeke writes most of the chapters but includes guest writers who are experts in their subject area as well. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to understand the Reformed Christian faith.
