Kevin DeYoung: Why I am a Calvinist

This is a great post by Kevin DeYoung. I like the whole post, but especially
The influence of Calvinism is growing because its God is transcendent and its theology is true...
What draws people to Reformed theology is the belief that God is the center of the universe and we are not, that we are worse sinners than we imagine and God is a greater Savior than we ever thought possible, that the Lord is our righteousness and the Lord alone is our boast.

The attraction of the New Calvinism is not Calvin, but the God Calvin saw—not some new fad, but something old with new life blowing through it from the Spirit of God.
