Over at CT, Rodger Olson has a short review of Ken Stewart’s book Ten Myths About Calvinism. According to Olson:
Stewart chides major personalities of the current Calvinist upsurge for thinking as though it “appeared Melchizedek-like, ‘without genealogy.’?” He names two heroes of the mostly 20-something crowd of new Calvinists, John Piper and Mark Driscoll, as culprits of this de-historicized vision of contemporary Calvinism. Stewart concludes that the new Calvinists need to recognize how their movement “stands in succession to and dependency on … earlier movements.” Recounting the stories of five earlier Calvinist upsurges, he calls on contemporary Calvinists to admit interdependence between past and present, show loyalty to both, eschew triumphalism, and practice unity and forbearance.
An okay read if Calvinism (pro or contra) is your interest.
My own note of Ken Stewart’s book is here.
