The rise of the New Calvinists

with one comment

Justin Taylor (drawing on Mark Dever) and Tim Challies have been having an interesting conversation about the rise of “new Calvinism.” There are some helpful perspectives and insights here.

First, Justin pointed to ten factors identified by Mark Dever, adding his own fairly typical thoughts. I thought Dever’s were insightful, though Taylor’s revealed a narrower range of appreciation.

Then, Tim – not unexpectedly – zeroed in on the role of the interweb. I think Tim is right.

Next, Justin nuanced that with further thoughts on the internet and institutions. His point about free internet – a ministry rather than business model – is an important one, but I am concerned that institutions apart from the one which Christ has established are not a safe haven for the gospel (even if, as Justin tries to argue, they exist to support the church).
