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.

Olson explains in great detail the Biblical and logical inconsistencies with Calvinism. He also defends Arminianism well when needed. However, the focus is set on the errors of Calvinism. I recommend this to book to all Christians. Many of today's churches do not go into detail about doctrine. I think it is important to know what you believe and why. It is particularly important because of the injustice that Calvinism does to God's character. Olson does not seek to attack Calvinists but Calvinism. Good read.

John Charles Ryle’s best known works have been reissued and widely read over many years. The fine qualities of his writings have ensured that his books are still popular and useful. This volume has become a classic work and is known and loved by many throughout the world. In days when evangelical preachers are accused of being either superficial or dull, we have here a great example of one who was neither of these things. As Bishop Ryle applies his texts, the listener will find his soul examined.

This was an excellent book. It was written over 100 years ago but is a timeless subject. It is very detailed and Ryle's assertions are back with scripture. The reader, Ralph Cosham, is the best audiobook performer I've listened to. His voice is easy to listen to and reads the material like he owns it. Great book! Recommended to anyone interested in Christianity and Holiness.
