What Book Book Brought You To Calvinism?
A short time ago the guys over at the Reformed Forum did a show on which book got you started on Calvinism and what's the story that goes with it. I thought it would be great to ask that question here. For me, believe it or not, it was An Eschatology of Victory by Marcellus Kik. I'm sure someone is asking how an eschatology book got me started. As the story goes, back in my dark years, I was a dispensationalist. I called my Pastor at the time to inquire of him some piece of information on the subject and I was told that he did not hold to dispensationalism. "I'm a postmillennialist." I was floored. Couldn't believe it. He loaned me his copy of EOV which got me further into Reformed theology. What I didn't know at the time was that he was steadily converting to Reformed theology by reading Joy Unspeakable by Martin Lloyd-Jones. (So I guess, indirectly, that book got me into Reformed theology as well.) The rest is history - I've been Reformed and reading Reformed theology ever since. What's your story? What's that book that got deep into Reformed theology? I want to hear from all of you.
