166 - The Five Points of Calvinism Part 1

This week we begin our long awaited-for series on the five points of Calvinism. Before we explore each of the points themselves, Dr. Brian L Hanson joins the podcast once again to give us a historical perspective on this controversial topic. Brian is the assistant professor of history and theology at Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis and an elder at Bethlehem Baptist Church. It's an interesting discussion so put on your thinking caps and get to take notes!
