Description

A warm-hearted, accessible introduction to the five points of Calvinism, showing how a true understanding of them can make you a more humble and loving Christian.

For some Calvinism is synonymous with being argumentative, arrogant, and unloving. Author Jeff Medders shows how taking Calvinism to heart should fuel a love of Christ and his people that builds others up, rather than tearing them down.

Commendations

A great book on how to be robustly Reformed and savour the doctrines of grace without being a jerk about it. I wish I had read this book when I was in seminary. This book is about how theological knowledge and Christlike love go together, and if they don’t, then you’re doing it wrong.

Lecturer in Theology, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia

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.

Maybe in another generation the term "humble Calvinism" won't seem like such an oxymoron. If so, this encouraging and challenging book will have been used by God to help us live up to what we believe.

Independent reviews

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!”

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!”

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

“Calvinism is About Jesus, not TULIPs”

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?
