R. K. McGregor Wright (1940–2012) Defines Hyper-Calvinism

Hyper-Calvinism. The illogical conclusion of some Calvinists that because God is sovereign and so will certainly save the elect, we are not responsible for our sin, for preaching the gospel, for inviting all sinners to come to Christ or for missionary endeavors. Some have also denied common grace, rejected missions and preached antinomianism.
R. K. McGregor Wright, No Place for Sovereignty (Downers Grove, IL: IVP, 1996), 237.

I think there are some problems with this definition historically, but I wanted to highlight his true statement that some who are hyper-Calvinistic deny common grace.
