McKnight on "Against Calvinism"

Categories Theology

Against Calvinism Over at Jesus Creed Scot McKnight is working his was through Roger Olson's Against Calvinism.

So I asked him, “What was he?” His response was “Liberal.” “Perhaps more liberal than you, but Barth was in the Reformed Church.”

He was shocked so I asked him who he thinks represents Reformed theology today the best. His response: “Piper and Driscoll.”

As I read Olson, that is the problem he is addressing.
