I really do like Calvin but I am enjoying the following debate over Calvinism in an online review of Randal Rauser's book Finding God in the Shack.
Rauser is critical of Calvinism in his book and some Calvinists have taken strong exception to that (understandably). So here is one of them critiquing Rauser and then Rauser's reply (with a bit of heady too and fro). All very stimulating.
For the record: in my view Rauser has not misunderstood Calvinism at all. His critique is spot on.
Should we thus abandon Calvinism? No, but, in my opinion, it does need some reworking.
