What is Experiential Calvinism?
Title: What is Experiential Calvinism?
Publisher: Reformation Heritage Books
“There is no such thing as ‘dead Calvinism,’” writes author Ian Hamilton. Calvinism, simply put, is biblical Christianity. No mere human devised theological system, Calvinism is rooted in and shaped by God’s revelation in Holy Scripture. Hamilton asserts that Calvinism is “natively experiential.” In What Is Experiential Calvinism?, the author shows us that Calvinism is far richer and more profound than five points and helps us see that the lives and ministries of those who are true Calvinists pulse with living, Spirit-inspired, Christ-glorifying, God-centered truth.
“It is not every Christian book (or booklet in this case) that you read and find that nearly every line and thought are gems that urge you to stop reading and ponder and worship the living God of grace! But this is such a book! In a short compass, Ian Hamilton has wonderfully captured the experiential heart of true Calvinism: ‘deeply affectional, God-centered, cross-magnifying.’ In a word, this is an essay deeply needed by all who call themselves Calvinists—and even all those who do not!” — Michael A. G. Haykin, professor of church history and biblical spirituality, and director of the Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
