Description

Humble Calvinism is both a helpful summary of what Calvinism is, and a helpful challenge to those who are convinced Calvinists. It calls us to hold Calvinism in our hearts, not just in our heads, so that we are humble and gracious as well as zealous for the truth, to the praise and glory of Christ and his church.

Author Jeff Medders admits that he is quick to defend Calvinism, but often slow to humbly love Christians who take a different view. His warm-hearted, challenging (and surprisingly witty) book takes readers through the the five points of Calvinism, revealing that a true understanding has a humbling effect on our hearts, fuelling a love of Christ and his people that builds others up, rather than tearing them down.

Commendations

Read this if you are a Calvinist. Read it if you don't understand Calvinism. Read it if you dislike Calvinism! I am certain you'll be encouraged, and you might even be pleasantly surprised. Both timely and helpful, from the first page to the last this refreshing book encouraged me to delight in Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Jeff dives into some heady theology with wit and clarity, but above all with gospel-centred lightness by constantly extolling our Saviour.

Calvinists should be humble and happy. It’s sadly not always the case, and Young, Restless and Reformed has too often become Proud, Aggressive and Tiresome. The trouble is we’ve misunderstood and misapplied Calvinism. J.A. Medders has done us all—and me in particular—a very great service in providing some helpful and necessary correction. I was both convicted and encouraged by his exhortation, and you will be too.

Reformed culture seems to be known for its harshness and lack of grace. Yet Reformed soteriology should create a joyful heart and a deep, glad humility that overflows into compassionate evangelism and graciousness to all. I hope Jeff's book will be used by God to renew a spirit of gentleness and humility among us, and will encourage those who have rejected these beautiful beliefs to consider them anew.

To say I loved this book would be selling it short

Noah, Heirs Magazine

It was funny, entertaining, engaging, informative, encouraging, and convicting all at the same time...... continue reading

A hilarious page-turner which will stir your affections for Jesus more than any sweet-smelling tulip.

Jonny Ivey, Heirs Magazine, March 1st 2019

It’s for people who haven’t heard of Calvinism. It’s for people who dislike Calvinism because of arrogant Calvinists. But above all, Humble Calvinism is for arrogant Calvinists.... continue reading

“Fantastic! A must-read!”

(Review written for 'Humble Calvinism')

Oh I love this. It's easy to read, it's warm, gracious, honest and so important! You don't have to be a Calvinist to read it; I think it would be really helpful for any Christian to read. But I DO think calvinists should read it. I really do!
Perhaps it could be compulsory summer reading for young people about to start university? So much grief could be avoided if we'd all humble ourselves and treasure Christ more.
What better way to learn about Calvinist doctrine than by reading a book that embeds it in humility and grace?

I really hope calvinists will be humble enough to read it!

“Helpful!”

(Review written for 'Humble Calvinism')

A nice summary of TULIP. Really good to give to someone who hasn't thought about Election before.

“Calvinism is About Jesus, not TULIPs”

(Review written for 'Humble Calvinism')

Call me a sceptic - but I thought 'Humble Calvinism' would be a really nice stick to beat grumpy Calvinists around the head with. In a: "Hey you! Grumpy Calvinist, read this and repent!" kind of way. What we have here instead, is a really warm, exposition of what it means to believe the five so-called doctrines of grace, how they take us to Jesus, and God's kindness to us in the gospel.

My only caveat is I don't think it's a book I could give to someone who is older than a millennial. There are too many pop-culture references, slangy turns of phrase, and Americanisms to give it the wide audience it deserves.

Otherwise I loved it. It made me praise God for his salvation in Jesus. What more do you want?
