Time Magazine has just published a list of the 10 ideas changing the world right now. Number 3. New Calvinism.
There’ll be a bunch of links to some reactions in my link post today. But here’s the actual article.
And here’s a quote:
“Calvinism, cousin to the Reformation’s other pillar, Lutheranism, is a bit less dour than its critics claim: it offers a rock-steady deity who orchestrates absolutely everything, including illness (or home foreclosure!), by a logic we may not understand but don’t have to second-guess. Our satisfaction — and our purpose — is fulfilled simply by “glorifying” him.”
The article names John Piper, Mark Driscoll and Albert Mohler as leaders of this pack.
