The system of theology known as Calvinism has been immensely influential for the past five hundred years, but it is often encountered negatively as a fatalistic belief system that confines human freedom and renders human action and choice irrelevant. Taking us beyond the caricatures, Michael Horton invites us to explore the teachings of Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, by showing us how it is biblical and God-centered, leading us to live our lives for the glory of God.

Horton explores the historical roots of Calvinism, walking listeners through the distinctive known as the “Five Points,” and encouraging us to consider its rich resources for faith and practice in the 21st Century. As a companion to Roger Olson’s Against Calvinism, listeners will be able to compare contrasting perspectives and form their own opinions on the merits and weaknesses of Calvinism.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon Reid | 1/20/2014

    " Passionate yet humble defense of Reformed theology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 10/31/2013

    " Very instructive, especially the section on evangelism and also God's use of means of grace to call us home. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 7/9/2013

    " Here is narrow-path Calvinism, in all of its elegant peculiarity--intellectually rigorous and surprisingly winsome. You won't find the dolefulness of the Reformed stereotype here, but you will find an exhilarating, unapologetic passion for the grammar of Grace and for mysteries of covenant theology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 2/2/2013

    " A great objective look at the doctrines of grace, Calvinism. You know it's going to be decent book on Calvinism when the introduction is written by an Arminian. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 7/26/2012

    " Good introduction to historic Calvinism that corrects many misunderstandings, including those held by its adherents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 7/13/2012

    " I thought both the For Calvinism and Against Calvinism books were good introductions to the debate, but aren't all that helpful once you have moved beyond the initial curiocity with all the hubbub. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Rutherford | 2/5/2012

    " Very solid presentation of calvinism, thoroughly biblical. Awesome to see the forward written by Roger Olsen, author of Against Calvinism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 11/3/2011

    " Outstanding defense of Calvinism that is similar to the book "what's so Amazing about Grace" - its a must read in my mind "

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.
