The prominent perception of Calvinism is a set of doctrines which have been disputed by proponents of Arminianism ever since both doctrinal positions emerged, but Calvinism is much more than just a set of doctrines, Calvinism is the true religion of the Bible, it is the lived out reality of God's special revelation. It is not solely confined to theological discussions, its scope is vast and extensive, with real societal implications. In this publication, Dooyeweerdian philosopher H. Evan Runner (1916-2002) traces the development of Calvinism in Europe and its arrival in North America, and distinguishes it from its false distortions.


Howard Evan Runner (1916-2002) graduated with honours from Wheaton College. He earned a Bachelor's degree in theology from Westminster Theological Seminary. He subsequently received an appointment as a junior fellow at Harvard University. After earning a Master's degree in theology at Westminster he traveled to The Free University of Amsterdam where he earned his Ph.D. degree. Runner taught Philosophy at Calvin College from 1951 until his retirement in 1981. He is the author of The Christian and the World, The Relation of the Bible to Learning, and several other publications collected in the Walking in the Way of the Word: The Collected Writings of H. Evan Runner.
