I highly recommend this article by Chris Chapman. It seems especially relevant in light of my recent responses to C Michael Patton on his “The Irrationality of Calvinism” post. While portions of Chapman’s post may seem offensive to some, it still illustrates a compelling narrative for why many end up turning to Calvinism. I have often gotten the same vibe from just having discussions with Calvinists, especially based on their personal descriptions of coming to Calvinism. I wonder if there are any former Calvinists out there who can attest to this narrative as rather accurately reflecting their own process in coming to Calvinism?
