Hardcover edition suitable for use as a text book.
Discussions with many people around the world reveal that multitudes of sincere, Bible-believing Christians are "Calvinists" only by default. Thinking that the only choice is between Calvinism with its doctrine of eternal security and Arminianism with its falling away, and confident that salvation cannot be lost because of Christ's promise to keep eternally those who believe in Him, they therefore consider themselves to be Calvinists.
It takes only a few simple questions to discover the fact that most of those who regard themselves as Calvinists are largely unaware of what John Calvin and his early followers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries actually believed and practiced. Nor do they fully understand what most of today's leading Calvinists believe.
While there are disputed variations of this doctrine, among its chief proponents (whom we quote extensively in context) there is general agreement on certain core beliefs. Multitudes who believe they understand Calvinism will be shocked to discover its Roman Catholic roots and Calvin's grossly un-Christian behavior as the "Protestant Pope" of Geneva, Switzerland.
Most shocking of all, however, Calvinism's misrepresentation of God who "is love." It is our prayer that this book will enable readers to examine more carefully the vital issues involved and to follow God's Holy Word and not man.

What's changed since the last edition?
What Love Is This? by Dave Hunt has been reissued with a brand new, expanded index. The inside text has remained basically unchanged with the exception of a few places where first names were added for identification, a couple footnote corrections were made, and a few punctuation errors were corrected. The big change in this book is the exhaustive index, which is a great improvement over the first two editions. Dave created this index as one that he would be able to use himself when he is at speaking engagements and needs to find an answer quickly. You will enjoy perusing the index all by itself to discover facts about Calvinism, Roman Catholicism, Martin Luther, etc.
