The 1906 Catholic Encyclopedia's article on Calvinism begins with the words “this remarkable (though now largely obsolete) system...” Yeah, right. Try again, 1906 Catholic Encyclopedia (if that's your real name!); The Calvinati are alive and well. And we are everywhere.

Fast-forward a hundred years. The cover of the September 2006 issue of Christianity Today reads "Young, Restless, Reformed: Calvinism Is Making a Comeback--and Shaking Up the Church." This was news to many, but a mere confirmation of what the Calvinati already knew. The doctrines of grace were on an upswing. Young people were sick of bubble-gum pop music and life advice from Jesus in their churches. They were longing to return to the Scriptures, to sound doctrine, to a God who was bigger and a grace more amazing than they could fathom. Indeed, Calvinism was (and is) shaking up the church.

Since that issue hit the stands, Collin Hansen has expanded his cover story into a full book, exploring the phenomenon that is the new Calvinists. And there is much to explore. Calvinism has been thriving in churches, on campuses, and (perhaps especially) on the Internet. In fact, there seem to be new Calvinist websites and blogs starting every day. A sad side effect of all this growth is the all-too-common scenario that finds proponents of the doctrines of grace becoming hopelessly entangled in a never-ending web of inter-referential blogrolls, hyperlinks, articles, and podcasts.

What we need at this point is a central hub of all things Calvinist.
www.calvinati.com is that hub.

Our vision is to be the caretakers of never-exhaustive-but-ever-growing lists of active Calvinist blogs, websites, groups, periodicals, and even churches (all submitted by you, the Calvinati).

calvinati.com is broken up into the following sections:

Whether you're young, restless, and Reformed; old, stodgy, and Presbyterian; or, like me, thirty, hyper, and Baptist, we hope that you find www.calvinati.com to be a useful hub for all things Calvinist.
