In preparing for my discussion on Total Depravity at Providence Church, I have been reading through my old Professor John Frame’s Introduction to the Reformed Faith. In discussing Hyper-Calvinism he writes in a footnote:
It is hard to define hyper-Calvinism. Often I am inclined to say that a hyper-Calvinist is somebody who thinks I am not Calvinistic enough! But it is probably best to associate hyper- Calvinism with the historic tradition which is represented in our century especially by the teaching of Herman Hoeksema and the Protestant Reformed Church (emphasis mine).
