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, listeners 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 audiobook 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, listeners will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

    " Wow! I thought I knew a few things about Arminianism but this book really opened my eyes to the hatchet-job most theologians have done on true Arminian theology. This is a must read if you are interested in issues surrounding Reformed theology, Calvinism, predestination, election, etc., etc. "

    " I imagine many Calvinists have never read a book contrary to their view on TULIP. May this be the first of many. "

    " Not very good. I was hoping for some solid arminian arguments to grapple with and I really wasn't challenged by Olsen in this text. "

    " Good book. He makes a strong and clear case against Calvinism. The book is a bit repetitive. I was glad to see that he so highly commended Thomas Oden's book, The Transforming Power of Grace. "

    " great read, challenging and insightful "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 6/18/2012

    " Loved the book. Easy to read. Very much recommend it. After the very heady reading of "Whosoever Will" this was a good and challenging but easier read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 6/13/2012

    " Best book against Calvinism that I have run across. He uses reasonable argument rather than emotion, though he makes some errors and I disagree with his conclusions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 1/3/2012

    " Coming from a more Calvinistic bent I really enjoyed and learned from this book some of the pitfalls of Calvinism and it opened my eyes to view the Scriptures differently. I am still wading through the whole Calvinism Vs. Arminianism debate. "

    " Ok I understand that you believe the God of calvinism is a moral monster, move on from just merely asking questions...endlessly. There has to be a better defense against calvinism out there. But then again maybe not... "

About the Narrator

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
