I have to say I was rather surprised to see this: Time magazine has named Calvinism as one of “10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now.”
As far as the mainstream press goes, it does a pretty good job. It is very heartening, and strange, to see a movement generated by theology in the media. I’ve had my share of criticisms of aspects of this “new Calvinism,” but it comes as an internal critic who genuinely wants the best in Reformed theology to leaven the Church.
I especially like that the article mentions the influence of this Calvinism in contemporary worship. Time cites David Crowder. You could also add everyone else involved with Passion (Charlie Hall, Chris Tomlin, Steve Fee, etc.) which has been heavily influenced by John Piper and like-minded ministers. Most of these worship artists are not full-fledged Calvinists, but the influence is obvious and very welcome.
