There have been a few books published on this issue lately, but none by anyone with as high a profile as Dave Hunt. Due to this, it has had a larger circulation and this has led to bitter gnashing of teeth in some quarters and vitriolic refutations.
It is fairly easy to read and relies on quotes from many Calvinists themselves, as well as biblical exigesis which is not founded on the traditional eisigesis of Calvinsts (at least in relation to this doctrine).
I would recommend this book to any Christian who wants to get a sound biblical veiw of soteriology (salvation) that steers between the two extremes of Calvinism and Arminianism. For more advanced readers try Laurence Vance "The Other Side of Calvinism" but for beginners in this subject this is an excellent intro.
There is a new inlarged hardback edition which I hope to get hold of. Debating Calvinism by Hunt and White is good as well, with Hunt clearly getting the upper hand.
FINALLY! I CHALLENGE ANY CALVINIST TO READ THIS, IF YOU HAVE GOT THE GUTS. INSTEAD OF JUST SLAGGING IT OFF, BASED ON SOMETHING YOU READ OR HEARD! May God be blessed and your soul be saved through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved".
Well, the quotations and historical evidences are right here in this book, from John Calvin's bloody and unChristian life to common Calvinist attacks on those who disagree with them. Each component is thoroughly and comprehensively analysed. TULIP is solidly and rationally rebuked. There is sufficient presence of the Scripture here. An excellent scholar does not have to be neutral, when a human sees something infuriating, it is certainly natural and okay to criticise it.
It covers the Five Points of Calvinism that is T.U.L.I.P and refutes each point by point in a biblical manner.
It is interesting to note that James White rather than try to refute Dave Hunt simply states that there is no actual biblical exegesis in the book something that most Calvinist's would simply accept at face value.
Hunt covers the historical John Calvin his attitude and admitted cruelty. Facts that even Calvinist's dare not deny but instead try to justify.
This is an invaluable and timely book that every discerning Christian should read before committing themselves to the so-called `Doctrines of Grace'.
Oh and I am no relation to Dave Hunt!
