A new form of Calvinism took the shape of a movement from about 2005, but it differed from the original in its acceptance of ‘the world’. This critique written in 2009 was sharply attacked by New Calvinistic preachers but strongly endorsed by conservative preachers worldwide.
This tender yet challenging message from a pastor’s heart deals remarkably with personal temptation, and includes many profound observations. ‘There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it’ (1 Corinthians 10.13)
In the light of recent Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrations might I offer these comments. All manifestations of racial disrespect are disgraceful to sincere Christian people.

How much we need the challenging call of Howard Guinness’ Sacrifice! Only this level of commitment will take us through life’s journey used by God, and rejoicing in his power and love. From his time as a medical student at Bart’s, London, through his years as a worldwide student evangelist, and during his long ministry in Sydney, Dr Guinness lived the message of this book. May we do so also, to the glory of God.
