Product Description

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.

Jeremy Walker has placed us in his debt with this balanced assessment of the New Calvinism. He writes with an easy style, but also with substance. It is a book that demands re-reading often.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid guide 7 Feb 2014
Although Jeremy Walker claims not to be an expert on the ‘New Calvinism’, his book demonstrates the broad knowledge of a well-qualified guide. He offers some personal reflections on his own observations, writing in the same racy style found on his blog, ‘the Wanderer’ ([...] ). Walker doesn’t attempt a definition of the New Calvinist movement, given the hazy and hotly-debated nature of its outer boundaries, but he explores its spectrum of opinions and identifies several common, if not definitive, characteristics.

This book wouldn’t serve as a great introduction to someone who is completely new to the subject. It assumes a basic familiarity with the New Calvinist conferences, mega-churches, books, websites and ‘big names’. Walker shows us the vast landscape of the movement, pointing out features which we may have spotted before, and seeks to interpret them for us.

There are many high points in the landscape: a focus on the work of Christ and the grace of God; a heart for mission; a biblical view of gender roles; an exploitation of technological and cultural opportunities for the gospel; and a commitment to bible preaching. But there are other parts of the landscape where the traveller should tread with caution. Here Walker lists pragmatism and commercialism (in pursuit of size and influence); an unbalanced view of culture (sometimes becoming submerged rather than engaged); a troubling approach to holiness (opening the door to antinomianism); a potentially dangerous ecumenism; confusion about the cessation of some spiritual gifts; and a triumphalism which can border on arrogance.

Because the movement is so nebulous, he is forced to generalise, and some readers may therefore question some of his assessments.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed book. 25 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this a most helpful book and very profitable. Jeremy Walker deals with issues presented by New Calvinists is a very sensitive, caring yet firm way. He is critical when he needs to be and points out the weaknesses and highlights the strengths of this movement. A book that every discerning Christian should read
