    Calvinist theology has been debated and promoted for centuries. But is it a theology that should last? Roger Olson suggests that Calvinism, also commonly known as Reformed theology, holds an unwarranted place in our list of accepted theologies. In Against Calvinism, readers will find scholarly arguments explaining why Calvinist theology is incorrect and how it affects God's reputation.

    David says: "Relatively fair presentation"
    "Clear teaching in a sea of confusion"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Against Calvinism the most enjoyable?

    The reading was clear and easy to follow. Maurice England did a superb job of reading this text.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Against Calvinism?

    For me, it was being able to listen to the book and read it at the same time to help me understand the theme all the better.


    Which character – as performed by Maurice England – was your favorite?

    There were no "characters" in this work. It's a study from Roger Olson view of Calvinism.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It has seriously made me go back to Scripture and re-evaluate my own convictions about commonly held views that can be traced back to Calvinism's influence.

    Story
    (28)

    For the background to this historical novel, a tale of mystery, suspense and unsolved murder, Dickens chose the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots of 1780. Mayhem reigns in the streets of London, vividly described by Dickens, and the innocent Barnaby Rudge is drawn into the thick of it.

    Tad Davis says: "Wonderful"
    "Absolutely spellbinding!"

    Mesmerizing

    Beautiful


    What did you like best about this story?

    Charles Dickens's ability to bring out human nature at its darkest and finest. These characters are like every day people we all know.


    What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Barrett's ability to make the characters come alive and to give them their own voice was truly remarkable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, yes, and yes!


    Any additional comments?

    My wife and I thouroughly enjoyed listening to this with the book open in front of us each night this past week. We'll definitely be making this a regular practice.
