    Amazing Grace: The History & Theology of Calvinism

    Some friends of ours from church graciously allowed us to borrow this dvd on the history of reformed theology. It's amazing to me how the theology of our Christian forefathers has nearly slipped out of the foundation of mainstream churches in America today.

    The first part deals with history of the debates between Augustine and Pelagius through the semi-pelagian controversy, Martin Luther and his debate with Desiderius Erasmus, then ends with the the 5 points of Arminianism and the response from the Synod of Dort.

    The second part compares Arminianism to the Word of God and how the 5 points of Calvinism came about to respond.

    The third part is about evangelism, God's sovereignty, man's depravity, and God's amazing grace in saving sinners.

    The speakers are some of the great theologians and speakers of our time:

    Dr. R.C. Sproul, Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. George Grant, Dr. Stephen Mansfield, Dr. Thomas Ascol, Dr. Thomas Nettles, Dr. Roger Schultz, Pastor Walt Chantry, Dr. Joe Morecraft, Dr. Ken Talbot, Pastor Walter Bowie and Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr....not to mention from Martin Luther, Augustine, and the 'Prince of Preachers' Charles H. Spurgeon who are heavily quoted.

    It's a documentary that would be beneficial for any believer. It gets down to the core of the gospel of Christ and helped to give us a fresh taste of how amazing grace really is.
