As I was polishing up a section in my little book on What is Calvinism? everything you need to know about Calvinism...and then some (hopefully available at The 2013 John 3:16 Conference next month) I got a kick out of this statement by Edwin H. Palmer in his little book, The Five Points of Calvinism (Baker Books; 1972, 1980). He writes:
"And, the Calvinist freely admits that his position is illogical, ridiculous, nonsensical, and foolish" (p. 85).
But pardon me in love: so far as I can personally tell, the Calvinists about whom Palmer speaks were surely a dying breed...
