    “The Joy Project is a celebration of reformed theology, and in this way it’s more in keeping with the Bible’s treatment of the subject—behold the beauty before bemoaning the controversies.

But too often the defenders of Calvinism explain it only in highly technical, formulaic, and negative terms. As a result, most people today don’t understand what “Calvinism” really is.

In this book, Forster describes in great depth while still remaining a conversational tone what Calvinism is and what being a Calvinist implies. — The value of TULIP in negating the views Calvinism does not hold — A few problems with TULIP — Calvinism from the perspective of God’s love — A strange fact: Calvinism is drenched in joy — The advantage of a layman’s perspective — .
