Interesting and easy enough to read without seeming dumbed down. I was hoping to see some of the apparent contradictions in uber-Calvinism taken on, but left a little disappointed here. If 'man' himself can do nothing to obtain salvation, then why in "solus Christus" is hearing the word spoken necessary for election (God alone saves... provided the Reformed church has preached first)? Calvinism is a relief to the unbearable notion that we might not be absolutely sure that we're saved; but, suppo ...more

I have just come into the reformed way of thinking this year. After going through a Ligonier Connect course on the 5 Solas using this book, I finished out the other essays. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to ALL Christians. I seriously cannot tell you how many years I believed in utter heresy out of pure ignorance. Pray that the Holy Spirit will lead you into the truth, then read your Bible and if you get a chance, this book.

Recommends it for: Anyone unfamiliar with Reformed theology
Shelves: essays, theology
This is one of the books that introduced me to Reformed theology and indeed, it makes a great introduction, featuring an essay on each of the five points of Calvinism and five Solas of the Reformation written by some contemporary giants in the world of Reformed Christian preaching and writing. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to become acquainted with the rudiments of Reformed theology.

Essays are actually pretty good. Despite what critics think of Mathison, he didn't invent the Tradition 1, 2, and 3 categories in order to sneakily justify sola scriptura. Those categories are the product of Heiko Oberman, whose thesis is the standard on late medieval theology.
Erik Spohr
Good theological overview of the Christian faith. Chapters 3-7 were excellent.
Steve Hemmeke
Good survey of Calvinism, by taking 5 solas and 5 TULIP points of Calvinism.
Luke Evans
Pretty basic. Very solid though. Ferguson's article particularly excellent.
A good overview of Reformed theology.
Calvinism in a nutshell.
Very good on many subjects
