Smith’s book is short, but packed with insight and employs an attractive writing style.
And in light of this, Dr. James K. A. Smith, a "New Calvinist" himself in many respects, writes us all a series of letters as "an invitation to the Reform Tradition."
This popular book does just that - it serves the church; it provides an accessible and erudite introduction to the Reformed faith in an epistolatory format.
