9780852349687: The New Calvinism Considered: A Personal and Pastoral Assessment

Of all the various movements that have affected the evangelical
Christian Church in the early years of the 21st century, the
young, restless and reformed or New Calvinists are among the
most significant. Jeremy Walker acknowledges the difficulties of
tackling this subject, which he approaches with some caution. He
writes of his desire to provide a balanced and appropriately
irenic assessment as he considers the contribution of various
personalities:
At the core you will hear names such as John Piper, Mark Dever,
C.J. Mahaney, Al Mohler, Mark Driscoll, Matt Chandler, Kevin
DeYoung, Ligon Duncan, Tim Keller, Don Carson, and Wayne
Grudem. On the websites and in the blogosphere names like
Justin Taylor and Tim Challies are prominent.
More on the fringes, and with a much more ambivalent
relationship, are men like R. C. Sproul and John MacArthur on
the one hand and James MacDonald and Francis Chan on the
other.

Review:

The best thing about this assessment is that Jeremy has
approached the matter in genuinely Christian fashion. He speaks
of the difficulty of speaking accurately about such a large and
diverse movement. He understands the necessity of guarding his
criticisms in a way that is deeply Christian. He does not forget to
commend the movement where it can and ought to be
commended. Nevertheless the critique he launches loses none of
its helpfulness and power for all this. He notes how difficult it is
to boldly provide such criticisms in the context of the cult of
celebrity and triumphalism that sometimes characterizes the New
Calvinism. It is always difficult to be the little boy who tells the
world that the emperor has no clothes (or has at least stripped
down to his underwear), but Jeremy does so with both candor
and kindness. . . .
If you are not sure what to think of the New Calvinism, you need
to read this book. If you have friends struggling with it, you need
to give them this book. If you are being reproached for not
embracing it, use the arguments and cautions of this book to
defend yourself. If you are in danger of rejecting the whole of
New Calvinism root and branch, you need the care of this book to
restrain you. --Dr. Sam Waldron, Academic Dean of the Midwest Center for Theological Studies,
