Resurgence of Calvinism noted by Louisville Courier-journal

The Louisville Courier-Journal and writer Peter Smith are to be commended for an even-handed treatment of "new Calvinism" and the way it is exemplified within the Southern Baptist Convention by Pleasant Valley Community Church (PVCC). This is the church whose application for membership the Davies-McLean Baptist Association rejected last year (you can read my thoughts about that fiasco here).

Here is a video that accompanies the story in the Courier-Journal. It is encouraging to see and read honest reporting about the resurgence of the doctrines of grace from a secular source. Some Christian bloggers, reporters and pastors would do well not only to read and watch the report, but to take notes on how Peter Smith did it. Read the article here.
