Matt 6:32:33

Young, William – Historic Calvinism and Neo-Calvinism, from the Westminster Theological Journal, vol. 36, 1973-74, with editorial revisions from the Rev. Sherman Isbell

Neo-Calvinism was birthed from the thought of Abraham Kuyper, Herman Dooyeweerd, and others in the late 1800’s.  It has had a tremendous effect on, and has become a dominant feature of, reformed thought in America.  Young show where Neo-Calvinism has departed from historic Calvinism on 7 points, including: a change of Covenant Theology, an over-emphasis on cultural renewal and institutions, a depreciation of personal religion, and affirming the unBiblical doctrine of presumptive regeneration with its various implications.
