Reading List on Calvinism

Reading List on Calvinism

There follows a lengthy list of books and other literature reviewing various aspects of Calvinistic or Reformed theology. We cannot endorse everything written in this listing. In fact, there are some questionable teachings on some matters, even pertaining to salvation. The literature is also of varying quality. However, all of the books show some of the weaknesses of the Reformed faith or Calvinistic system. (Some of the books may now be out of print but many are still available. Check with your “Christian” book store or your local library. If we may provide further information, please wrote or email us.)
