Reformed Bloggers Encouraged; Challenged

Dr. Andrew Jackson, a friend of mine, and creator and blogger of SmartChristian.com, recently reflected on his perception that some "Reformed and Calvinistic blogs ... often portray and attack Arminian theology as being almost heretical." He has encourage Reformed bloggers to read Roger E. Olson's book, Arminian Theology: Myths and Realities.

I'm curious.

If you are a Reformed/Calvinistic blogger, do you plan to take up Dr. Jackson's challenge?

And for those that may have already read the book, what are your thoughts of the book?

And for everyone - what do you think of Dr. Andrew's assessment/perception regarding "Reformed/Calvinistic" blogs?

Scot McKnight over at Jesus Creed is blogging the crap out of Olson's book.

There is no reason to think there aren't any Arminians in heaven. A lot of Calvinist come out of Arminian teaching. Our attitude should be one of grace towards them. Yet like B.B. Warfield said, Calvinism is Christianity come to it's own.

I agree, David. I came from an Arminian background, and I was saved at the time. There's no doubt that God's grace must be paramount in our dealings with ALL, Arminian, Reformed, Hyper-Calvinists, the unsaved - ALL! Thanks for your great comment!

I appreciate you thoughtful (as always) thoughts! ;)
