    One thought on “What Love Is This?: Calvinism's Misrepresentation of God”

    1. A former pastor handed me this book to try and deter me "off my Calvinist cliff", as he called it. I read it thoughtfully and took a ton of notes. Sadly, Hunt refused to actually deal with the doctrines of grace accurately, despite his high intelligence. I suspect his emotions and staunchly held world view kept him from approaching the subject with any kind of objectivity. Right from the beginning, his objections were straw man imaginations, often presenting silly caricatures of Calvinist belief [...]

    2. I'll link a detailed review, but please note that within a 6 month span Hunt went from saying that he had never read original sources on Calvinism to saying that he probably knew more about Calvinism then most Calvinist's. However, it is quickly apparent that he is still not familiar with primary sources which causes his misrepresentationsegracelifepulpit/art

    3. A better subtitle would be "Dave Hunt's Misrepresentation of Calvinism." When I read this I was looking for a good, scholarly Arminian tome that would provide some good counter arguments to a reformed soteriology. This is not that book, as it's arguments are very repetitive and many straw men are burned to death.

    4. I've been running in Reformed circles for a few years now.  The name "Dave Hunt" has come up a few times.  Never in flattering terms.  Funny, but listening to Calvinists rail against him, I would reflect fondly on a "Dave Hunt" I read as a younger man.  Hunt was a curmudgeonly old Christian who loved eschatology and wrote hit pieces against the Catholics and Muslims.  Surely not the same guy.  Wellme guy!  I recognized Hunt's bald dome on the back cover immediately!  Small world.  Cal [...]

    5. Apparently I believe that God damns even those that desperately love Him but don't know how to be saved. That's odd. Hunt's criticisms of beliefs are all true, but no Calvinist that I've met holds to the beliefs. So, I agreed with the entire book, save where he blithely asserts what we believe. I had hoped for better.

    6. I read this book all the way through for a class, and later reread a few parts. It was written in a "reference" style, so it repeats itself a lot if you read it from cover to cover.The author of this book seemed to go out of his way be as offensive and insulting as possible toward those who disagreed with him, making sweeping generalizations about what "all" Calvinists believe. He ended the book with a made-up story that he intended to be heart-breaking, but just sounded ridiculous. Any traces o [...]

    7. If you're looking for the most detailed refutation of Calivinism you can possibly find, then this book should fit the bill nicely. If, however, like me, you don't find all that predestination stuff even remotely convincing to begin with, then reading this book in its entirety amounts to nothing less than extreme overkill. The topic is interesting, but Hunt is a fairly lackluster writer and thorough almost to a fault. Hunt doesn't just beat a dead horse: he beats it, skins it, smokes it, chews it [...]

    8. I have a lot of respect for Dave Hunt, a Christian apologist/theologian. This book is impeccably researched and written in a very straightforward, matter-of-fact tone, yet he does not hold back in pointing out inconsistencies in Calvinist/Augustinian doctrine when compared to Scripture. There is a lot of useful and interesting historical context and I am learning a lot as I read - including important events in the history of the Christian/Orthodox/Catholic church, how other religions have come i [...]

    9. A must read if you have questions about Calvinism.A very good book for anyone who wants to know the truth about Calvinism. It's thorough and informative. I will be recommending this book to many in the future.

    10. This is a masterful exposition of Scripture regarding the love of God and the ways in which the Calvinist TULIP stands in contradiction to it. With all due respect to my Reformed brethren, this book is worth your honest investigation. You may find it liberating.

    11. If I could I'd give it six stars. I always knew Calvinism had serious flaws, but until I read this book, I didn't know just how insidious it was. The late brother Hunt, has once again done discerning believers a great favor.

    12. Dave Hunt masterfully shows why Calvinism is heresy and misrepresents God. A must read for all Christians.

    13. This may be more than a beginner would want to swallow, but this is a well researched and important book on the subject of human will. The aim of the author is to illuminate the rigid systems of some branches of Christian theology that stress God’s sovereignty in such a way that human choice is effectively denied and drained of any meaning. Hunt emphasizes, using much Scripture, that choice is necessary for real heart change, and that this is not “giving man the upper hand,” as some fear, [...]

    14. This was a fantastic book detailing the heresy of Calvinism, and contrasting that with what the Bible says. It is VERY thorough, often repetitive, but does a great job covering every angle of the Calvinist belief system. I highly recommend it.

    15. Needs a good editor This is not a review of theological conclusions, it is simply a review of the presentation format.After reading How Close Are We? by Dave Hunt, I was very much looking forward to another book by this author. I found the first book an exciting read, its points easily accessible and memorable.This book, however, felt like it was written by a different author, and, more than anything, it begs the attention of a good editor. I found it to be almost impossible to follow, due to th [...]

    16. he repasado de nuevo este libro leído durante este año. Sin duda alguna casi 600 páginas de teología. Recomiendo este libro a cualquiera que quiera hacer un estudio serio sobre el calvinismo. He disfrutado el hecho de que el hermano Dave puso la Biblia y sus enseñanzas por encima de cualquier sistema de teología.

    17. Gave me a good history of Calvinism and its state today, but also left me very sad. Left me with a lot of questions about TULIP and it's base. Makes me want to go back to school and get a religious studies degree.

    18. I am currently reading this book at a snails pace because there is so much info to devour, but it is an excellent book when it comes to refuting the heresy of Calvinism. I wish they had it on the kindle because it is over 500 pages!

    19. Fallacies abound, from straw man to poisoning the well.Embarrassingly, I found this thoroughly convincing when i was a teenager, but I have since come to see how deceptive his rhetoric is. Avoid this like the plague.

    20. Great anti Calvinism bookthis book even though very long is a great treatise on the evils of predestination and the theology it creates

    21. i think a fair question might be to ask Dave what love is this in regards to the tone of the book. sadly seems angry and argumentative and not at all the informative read I was hoping for.
