Mark Dever, pastor of Capital Hill Baptist Church is writing a series that explains where all the Calvinists are coming from. This is interesting on several levels as Calvinism has become a big issue in Baptist churches. He is exploring the issue historically by looking at major influences that is bringing this revival of reformed doctrine.
Where'd All These Calvinists Come From? Part 2 of 10 by Mark Dever
When Jim Packer is asked the question "who is the greatest man you've known" I have, on several occasions, heard him reply without hesitation "Martyn Lloyd-Jones."
Where'd all these Calvinists come from? Quietly, all over the world young Christians, young ministers have had their spiritual tummies rumbling after they've been reading many of the spiritual bestsellers, books that are full of jokes and life tips, whose height of profundity have been something like "Lighten up and Live!" And someone has turned them on to Lloyd-Jones. And, by God's grace, they have learned about the grace of God, and the God of that grace.
