Academic Calvinism Is a Misnomer

In this excerpt from his teaching series, Calvinism and the Christian Life, Ian Hamilton explains why academic Calvinism is a complete misnomer.


This is why academic Calvinism is a complete misnomer. You cannot be apprehended in any sense by God’s majestic grace and gracious majesty and not be powerfully, deeply, and permanently affected in the inner man or the inner woman. This is Calvinism, and this is the note that the framers of the Westminster Shorter Catechism wanted to sound at the very beginning of the catechism: “What is man’s chief end? It is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.”
