Calvinism and the Southern Baptist Convention: A Response to Non-Calvinist Objections
What is Calvinism, and what does it have to do with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC)? In recent decades, the term has become controversial within the SBC. Ironically, Calvinism today is often perceived as something foreign to the ethos and values to Southern Baptists. Many non-Calvinists within the SBC do not understand Calvinism, and many who think they do often misrepresent it. In this book, Rod Walls demonstrates that the heritage of the SBC is staunchly Calvinistic and is a biblical teaching all Southern Baptists should wholeheartedly embrace. He further seeks to clear up some of the confusion over Calvinism by answering a number of the major objections raised by non-Calvinists. Does man have free will? Does God love everyone equally? Does Calvinism discourage evangelism? These are just a few of the questions Rod addresses in this easy-to-read book on a hotly-debated topic.
