Reviews - What do customers think about What Is a True Calvinist? (Basics of the Reformed Faith)?

Great reminder for those in the Reformed tradition  Jun 26, 2006
An excellent book that clearly communicates that at the heart of the Christian faith is the worship of God. "The goal of theology is the worship of God. The posture of theology is on one's knees. The mode of theology is repentance." (Sinclair B. Ferguson, pastor of St. George's Tron Church in Glasgow, Scotland and professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia). Ryken does an wonderful job of putting forth the essential elements that must be evident in the lives of those who adhere to the doctrines of Calvinism - they are a God-centered mind, a penitent spirit, a grateful heart, a submissive will, a holy life, and a glorious purpose. Using the story of Isaiah chapter 6, Ryken demonstrates these characteristics in the life of Isaiah as well as arguing that these attributes should be part of the committed Christian life. Ryken is honest enough to point out that Calvinism carries with it the unfortunate concept to many of pride and indifference - and Ryken clearly communicates that these attributes have no place in the humble walk of a true believer. This is a wonderful and concise read for those wanting to know more about what it means to be a Calvinist.
What a Calvinist Should Look Like  Jul 24, 2003
The title may give the impression that this is an explanation or defense of Calvinism. However, this small volume is written more to show what a Calvinist looks like. Another way of saying this that Ryken spends most of his time describing what effects Calvinism has on the life of the one who embraces it.

With that in view, this little booklet does an excellent job. It is a welcome respite from the "everyone who isn't a Calvinist is an idiot" genre of writing that so often characterizes usCalvinists. It has none of the combative tone that many works on Calvinism possess.

Ryken shows that the one who is a true Calvinist will not be characterized by his combativeness. The true Calvinist will be characterized by God-centeredness, humility, penitence, gratitude, and holy living among other things.

This is a good litmus test for those of us who follow the Calvinistic tradition. If our doctrine has not produced the above characteristics in us then something is missing in our theological education.
