A review of What is Reformed Theology? by R.C. Sproul

What is Reformed Theology? is a great overview and introduction to Reformed Theology–that is, the whole of theology and not just the five points of Calvinism with which it is often equated. The overview of the TULIP was very well done, the section on Total Depravity presented a good overview of Jonathan Edwards understanding of the freedom of the will. Even if you don’t agree with the finer points of reformed theology (e.g. their view of the Sacraments) this book is worth reading for its overview of Reformed theology and a brief introduction to its history; especially the overview it gives of Covenant Theology (contrasting with the commonly held idea of Dispensationalism), and what Calvinist’s really mean by TULIP.

This book gets a rating of 5/5
