What Is Experiential Calvinism? IanHamilton There is no such thing as dead Calvinism, writes author Ian Hamilton Calvinism, simply put, is biblical Christianity No mere human devised theological system, Calvinism is rooted in and shaped by God s revelation in Holy Scripture Hamilton asserts that Calvinism is natively experiential In What Is Experiential Calvinism , the author shows us that Calvinism is far There is no such thing as dead Calvinism, writes author Ian Hamilton Calvinism, simply put, is biblical Christianity No mere human devised theological system, Calvinism is rooted in and shaped by God s revelation in Holy Scripture Hamilton asserts that Calvinism is natively experiential In What Is Experiential Calvinism , the author shows us that Calvinism is far richer and profound than five points and helps us see that the lives and ministries of those who are true Calvinists pulse with living, Spirit inspired, Christ glorifying, God centered truth Cultivating Biblical Godliness Series D Martyn Lloyd Jones once said, The world today is looking for, and desperately needs, true Christians I am never tired of saying that what the Church needs to do is not to organize evangelistic campaigns and attract outside people, but to begin herself to live the Christian life If she did that, men and women would be crowding into our buildings They would say, What is the secret of this Many people who are new to the church need instruction in the most basic aspects of godly living Even where churches are engaged heavily in discipleship, visitors and members often have gaps in their understanding and practice One of the greatest needs of our time is for the Spirit of God to cultivate biblical godliness in us in order to put the glory of Christ on display through us, all to the glory of God the Father For these reasons, Joel Beeke and Ryan McGraw are coediting a series of booklets titled Cultivating Biblical Godliness These booklets treat matters that are vital to Christian experience, and each contribution aims to address a wide variety of people and circumstances at a fundamental and introductory level This includes teaching people what to believe in order to practice personal holiness as well as specific directions on how to cultivate biblical godliness in relation to issues that are common to God s people The distinctive feature of this series is its experiential tone While some booklet series aim to enlighten the mind, these booklets aim to warm the affections as well The goal is to promote communion with the triune God and to transform the entire person in thought, speech, and behavior To this end, we intend to include a wide range of authors whom the Spirit has blessed to skillfully stir up the church to personal holiness and affection to Christ through their preaching and writing ministries We need a Christianity that puts the transformative power of God in the gospel on display through developing a communion with God that is visible to the world Our prayer is that through this series, the Lord would revive His church by producing Christians who are full of love for Christ, who deny themselves in order to follow Him at great personal cost, and who know the joys of walking with the triune God This is the kind of Christianity that we need This is the kind of Christianity that the triune God has used to turn the world upside down May He be pleased to do so again Author Ian Hamilton is minister to Cambridge Presbyterian Church in Cambridge England and author of The Erosion of Calvinist Orthodoxy Endorsement It is not every Christian book or booklet in this case that you read and find that nearly every line and thought are gems that urge you to stop reading and ponder and worship the living God of grace But this is such a book In a short compass, Ian Hamilton has wonderfully captured the experiential heart of true Calvinism deeply affectional, God centered, cross magnifying.

  1. David Steele

    Each year, I put together a top ten list, books that have personally encouraged me books that I would commend to others It is unusual to include a booklet in such a list but after reading Iain Hamilton s, What is Experiential Calvinism this book will certainly make the top ten list in 2015.Calvinism is quite possibly one of the most misrepresented system thoughts both in the church and in the marketplace of ideas Christians and non Christians alike slice and dice this theological system into a c [...]

    Excellent little book Much to think about and meditate upon Will be re reading this a few times.Here is one of so many excellent passages in this book Third, the experiential Calvinist had a deep sense of the sinfulness of sin It is the greatest tragedy of our age that the supreme focus in much of the Christian church today is man, not God Man and his needs, not God and his glory, is the organizing principle and central concern of much that passes for evangelical Christianity Perhaps the greate [...]

    A good little booklet that is a worthwhile read Hamilton emphasizes how Calvinism is too often simply viewed as the five points, TULIP Does it include those Yes But it is so much and with the number of pages he is allotted he does a great job of explaining what is meant by experiential Calvinism, for it is ultimately biblical.

    A favourite line from this little book Can we dare call ourselves Calvinists if prayer is not one of the pulse beats of our congregational and personal life Surely it is prayer that most manifests our conviction that God the Holy Spirit is the great convincer, convicter, and applier of Christ s saving merits to sinners.

  5. Michael Stilley

    Hands down, every Calvinist should take a couple of hours and read through this short booklet Authentically biblical and soundly theological, yet highly practical and readable for all.
