Young Restless and Reformed by Colin Hansen

OK, I admit it – I was a little disappointed in this book. However, I really can’t explain what I was expecting in reading it. Hansen, a Christianity Today Editor has traveled the country speaking to the major figures on Calvinism, as well as students and others, to find out WHY reformed theology is once again popular. The book speaks with John Piper, CJ Mahaney, Al Mohler, Joshua Harris and Mark Driscoll, while also explaining some theology behind  Calvinism. Young people are coming to understand and believe in the doctrines of Grace and making unlikely people their heros – I.E. John Piper, a grandfather, is becoming an icon figure for the new, young, calvinist!! Interesting interviews with some interesting people – but thats about it.
