By an accident of history in the 17th Century five great Christian truths, formulated by successors of the Reformers at the Synod of Dort to counter a drift from the gospel, became linked with the name of the Genevan Reformer who had died half a century earlier. The label "Calvinism" was at first a propaganda tactic on the part of the opponents, but while defenders of the Reformation Faith recognised that it could well be called by another name they came to accept the term as denoting those doctrines which place man in entire dependence upon the free grace of God in salvation. This booklet is written to explain that teaching.

Customer Reviews for The Five Points of Calvinism
Review 1 for The Five Points of Calvinism
Date:June 22, 2011
The TULIP concept is summarized nicely in this little booklet. In a brief, simple, and straight-forward manner, it foundationally lays the groundwork for the Calvinist approach to Scripture. I would recommend this thought-provoking booklet to anyone, regardless of their theological perspective.

Review 2 for The Five Points of Calvinism
Date:August 6, 2010
This booklet is a brief introduction to The Doctrines of Grace. You might do well to read Romans ch. 9 and Ephesians ch. 2 prior to reading this booklet, then ask yourself, "What can a dead man do?" The answer: nothing. A dead man ("spiritually dead", in our case) must need some outside force, or first cause, before he can do anything, otherwise he can do nothing. What's more, have you ever seen anyone give birth to himself? Yet, Christ tells us that we must be born again. This birth is not by some "decision" (work) that we do to gain salvation. We depend upon God to regenerate us unto a genuine, saving faith. Highly recommended.
