I don't like doing bad reviews and I really don't like to totally slate a publisher or author but... Two new children's books recently came in from a well known publisher, a reformed publisher, one which states that it is committed to being faithful to God's inerrant, infallible Word. One I can trust to produce Biblically sound books within a reformed framework then? I was sadly disappointed.
Some may call me 'hyper' (those that want to will know what I mean), but since when has 'free-will' been part of TULIP? Since when have Calvinists encouraged 'Decisionism'? I'm sorry, but a storyline that encourages the main character to 'make a decision' about being a Christian or even to 'pray a prayer' to become a Christian strikes me as being decidedly Arminian.
I don't particularly want to 'Name & Shame', but I am interested to know how books like this can pass through a reformed editorial team and be deemed as suitable for publication. Perhaps I am too straightlaced for many, but where are the standards? If you are a Calvinist, stand up for the 5 Points. Why should we accept watered down theology, and certainly let's not put this in the hands of innocent children.
