Amazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism

Our good friend Lane Chaplin posted a wonderful video on his You Tube page about a video resource that is about as good as it gets. The Founder of Ten-Four Ministries, Tony Miano, makes an appearance in the video as well as our good friend Leon Brown from The Evangelism Team.

"Just what is "Calvinism?" Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won't evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God's sovereignty and man's responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists deny the Arminian definition of free will and label it heresy? Why did the Roman Catholic Church condemn the Reformed teaching of predestination and election and embrace free will theology? And why do so many Protestants, perhaps unwittingly, agree with Rome on this issue?

Amazing Grace - The History and Theology of Calvinism is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. This fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten "Sunday-school-sized" sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer."

Thanks Lane for a great post and video and thanks Eric Holmberg with the Apologetics Group for a wonderful, informed, detailed video about a subject that has been abused and twisted through the years.
