About

I’d like to be a mixture of Garrison Keillor and Mister Rogers when I grow up.

What you have here is the personal blog of Steven Wedgeworth.  I hold a B.A. in Literature and Philosophy from the University of Southern Mississippi and an M.Div. from Reformed Theological Seminary.  I am a husband to Anna, a father to Roland, and a master to Percival and Beatrice.  A full-time Presbyterian minister, serving at Immanuel Presbyterian Church, I am also something of an amateur political theory writer and church historian.  You can read my theological writing at The Calvinist International.

  1. Steven,

    I have posted on your site before; I am the minister at Rock Presbyterian in Greenwood, SC. We are currently in dialogue with the EPC and I will soon transfer into Mid-Atlantic presbytery. I have appreciated your wisdom and insights over the years at Reformed Catholicism and the occasional comment at Wilson’s blog. Keep up the good work!

  2. Steven:
    Your writings about 17th Calvinism are very well researched. An earlier post by one identified only as ‘Mello’ referred to an ETS paper I gave two years ago which had substantial areas of agreement with some things you are saying. This paper, in revised form, has just been published under the title “The Five Points of Calvinism: Retrospect and Prospect” in the Autumn 2008 issue of the Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology. I am quite sure that RTS has this, but if not let me know and I can give it to you in Word format. I am sure that we each have our own reasons for wanting to pursue this question further. Mine is that I believe that the revival of Calvinism since 1955 (largely but not entirely due to the BoT) has, without our realizing it, been a revival of ‘high’ Calvinism and this has been passed off as though it were the only Calvinism worth talking about. This, in turn, has spawned denunciations of Calvinism by Norman Geisler, Dave Hunt, and a variety of SBC folks on quite an unprecedented scale. We can interpret this as spiritual blindness if we wish to, but these critics of Calvinism may have something to tell us that we would otherwise be slow to recognize – ie that we have embraced one style of Calvinism as though it were the only variety worth discussing.
    I would be glad of further contact.
