Don't worry, including MacDonald's Sermons makes up for it ;)

I have never read Calvin. I don't agree with all of Calvin's positions on everything. But you would probably (wrongly) call me a "Calvinist." I was driven to the doctrines of grace by reading The Bible. I did not hear them from anyone else, until after I had already discovered them in Scripture. Maybe you should try reading the Bible with an open, inquisitive mind and heart? Just a thought.
