What are the five points of Calvinism? What do they mean? Why should we believe them?

This anniversary edition of The Five Points of Calvinism, now with Scripture quotations from the English Standard Version, contains updated source information and new appendices on such themes as "A Kinder, Gentler Calvinism," "Perseverance and Preservation," and "The Practical Applications of Calvinism."


“One could hardly wish for a better study resource to show the five points’ faithfulness to Scripture."

 —J. I. Packer

“Truly a classic—clear, concise, and warm in its presentation of historic Reformed theology. This latest edition is even better than the original.”

—R. C. Sproul

“It is a privilege to commend this enlarged and revised edition to a new generation. A model of clarity, full of biblical teaching.”

—Sinclair B. Ferguson

“Next to the doctrine of salvation, the sovereignty of God has, to me, been the most powerfully comforting truth. My thanks to P&R Publishing for issuing a new edition of this excellent book.” 

—Joni Eareckson Tada

“I am delighted to see this masterpiece in its new, revised edition. For anyone seeking to understand, teach, and enjoy the doctrines of grace, this book is quite simply a ‘must.’ ”

 —John Blanchard

“The authors’ scholarship is extensive, they never fudge an issue, and they carry their readers along in an inoffensive way to their conclusions. A superb depiction of Calvinistic soteriology.” 

—Robert L. Reymond

“The appendices serve to deepen one’s understanding of what true Calvinism is all about.” 

—Jerry Bridges

“The best and the most complete short introduction to the doctrines of grace.” 

—Philip G. Ryken
