The New Calvinism Considered: A Personal and Pastoral Assessment by Jeremy Walker (Click here to buy in my Amazon store.) My rating: 4 of 5 stars Jeremy Walker, pastor of Maidenbower Baptist Church, Crawley, England, presents a disturbing book. That may be an understatement.

I cannot speak to whether John Piper is saved or not. All I can say is that I really hope he repents. He betrayed his church when he allowed that wolf, Rick Warren, to speak at the Desiring God conference in 2010. Many people will say that it is not right to call it a […]
