    I found the book to be a thoroughly refreshing treatment of Calvinism When I was in school the Calvinists I knew where nothing like my impressions of Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, William Carey, Adoniram Judson, or Charles Spurgeon, who all struck me as warm hearted and genuinely evangelistic For that reason, and because of the belligerence of some I know toward Calvinism without, of course, reading what Calvinists write about what they believe I was generally put off of any considera I found the book to be a thoroughly refreshing treatment of Calvinism When I was in school the Calvinists I knew where nothing like my impressions of Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, William Carey, Adoniram Judson, or Charles Spurgeon, who all struck me as warm hearted and genuinely evangelistic For that reason, and because of the belligerence of some I know toward Calvinism without, of course, reading what Calvinists write about what they believe I was generally put off of any ...
