Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, January 2019
The January issue of Tabletalk covers the Synod of Dort. Reformed soteriology is typically summarized using the five points of Calvinism, which come from the answers that the Synod of Dort (1618–19) gave to the Arminian Remonstrants four-hundred years ago. While many Christians are familiar with the five points of Calvinism, few understand the circumstances that led the Reformed churches in the Netherlands to develop them. The influence of Dutch Reformed theology and piety around the world and particularly in North America is also a vital aspect of church history. This issue looks at the history, teaching, and lasting influence of the Synod of Dort and Dutch Reformed theology to help Christians grow in their understanding of Reformed Christian history, theology, piety, and practice.
