The first of two programmes focusing on inter-Christian debates over doctrine.

500 years ago the birth of John Calvin heralded the arrival of one who would have a momentous impact on the shape of world Christianity.

Calvinism is most often defined by its belief in predestination. Calvinist James White of Alpha and Omega ministries explains why he believes Calvin was right when he claimed that God’s will alone controls the eternal destiny of humans. Roger and Faith Forster of the Ichthus Christian fellowship defend an Arminian view - that human freewill is part of God’s grace when it comes to human salvation.
