Summary

"The old truth that Calvin preached, that Augustine preached, that Paul preached, is the truth that I must preach to-day, or else be false to my conscience and my God. I cannot shape the truth; I know of no such thing as paring off the rough edges of a doctrine. John Knox's gospel is my gospel. That which thundered through Scotland must thunder through England again." (C. H. Spurgeon)

A Defense of Calvinism is a classic text by Charles H. Spurgeon. This rendition is beautifully narrated by Bryan Nyman.

No evidence

I am leaning towards being more of a Calvinist in my beliefs, and I was hoping Spurgeon would cite some Bible passages to support his beliefs, but I don’t honk he even mentioned one verse, and that is unfortunate because I was hoping this would be full of verses and not just his opinions an/or feelings.

Short

Interesting from the perspective of the person satisfactions, intellectual and emotional, that Spurgeon found in his “doctrine of grace.” However, readers will not find a well-reasoned defense, and Spurgeon is vague on why he does not consider himself a hyper-Calvinist, whatever that is.
