What’s “new” about the New Calvinism?

Kevin DeYoung, Ligon Duncan, and Al Mohler discuss the unifying factors that characters the “new Calvinism” (e.g. authority of Scripture, sovereignty of God, gender roles, etc.).

I thought this video was particularly interesting in light of a recent post by R. Scott Clark arguing that such “predestinarian evangelicals” aren’t really Reformed at all. He makes a good point about the fact that people often use “Calvinist” and “Reformed” to refer almost exclusively to certain ideas related to sovereignty and predestination, neglecting the rich depth and distinctiveness of Reformed theology in so many other areas.

Regardless, the video is worth watching.
