In summarizing the beliefs of Calvinism, writer and professor Dr. Jim Orrick writes, "First, a Calvinist believes that God always does whatever he pleases. Second, a Calvinist believes that God initiates, sustains, and completes the salvation of everyone who gets saved."

In his book Mere Calvinism, Orick provides an excellent introduction to the Doctrines of Grace, explains the biblical basis for the Five Points of Calvinism, and defends the doctrines of Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and the Perseverance of the Saints.

Listen as our guest Dr. Jim Orrick explains what Calvinism teaches and addresses objections to and misunderstandings of these important doctrines.

Whether you are a committed Calvinist, are uncertain about these doctrines, or unfamiliar with them you are sure to gain a lot from our interview with Dr. Orrick on the basics of Calvinism.

On This Episode We’ll Discuss:

  • What the main beliefs of Calvinism are
  • Which of the Doctrines of Grace are the most controversial
  • How to respond to those who object to these doctrines
  • Why God's sovereignty in salvation does not minimize evangelism
  • How Calvinists can be more winsome in sharing their theological views
