Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Although most famous for his critique of Catholicism in his book Roman Catholicism, most of Boettner's work concerns topics within Reformed theology. In six sections, his book elaborates upon and defends the "five points" of Calvinism, placing particular stress on the doctrine of predestination. The book's first two sections introduce and define Calvinism's basic doctrines, while the third through fifth sections explain and argue for the validity of predestination as a Christian doctrine. The final section gives a short exposition of Calvinism's role in history. Many, both inside and outside the Reformed tradition, consider Boettner's summary and defense a staple among writings on Reformed theology. Clear, concise, and finely structured, this book is very accessible to any reader interested in the subject matter.
