Books Read in 2013: No. 2 – Killing Calvinism

14760916Title: Killing Calvinism: How to Destroy a Perfectly Good Theology From the Inside
Date Completed:
Jan 15, 2013

This is a wonderful little book that I recommend to anyone who considers themselves a Calvinist or is interested in Calvinism. Calvinism is a wonderful theology when placed within the larger context of Scripture, however, those of us who consider ourselves Calvinists have a tendency of allowing it to play out in our lives in unappealing ways. Dutcher manages to expertly expose and examine the mistakes Calvinists often make.

Contemporary Calvinists would do well to read Dutcher’s book and to avoid the pitfalls he has revealed. Killing Calvinism works well because Dutcher is speaking as a Calvinist to Calvinists. He is transparent enough to share his own theological journey in a way that shares with (rather than preaches to) his audience.

I highly recommend this book.
