Answers to More Questions about the New Calvinism

Here are a couple more video answers to some questions posed by readers at the Brazos Press Facebook Page.

Q from Devan DeCicco: ‎"Calvinism" (as distinct from Reformed) has always been around - you could listen to Calvinist preachers on the radio and read their books. What, then, has caused this resurgence in interest? To which cultural, ecclesiological, theological, political, and other factors would you point?

Q from Mason Slater: Do you think that some of what attracts people to the new calvinism might be not that far off from what attracts others to the emerging/emergent church?
That on some level both are a response to a church that shunned deep thought and hard questions?
