Arminian Theology

Arminian Theology

$40.99

Hardback

In this book, Roger Olson sets forth classical Arminian theology and addresses the myriad misunderstandings and misrepresentations of it through the ages. Irenic yet incisive, Olson argues that classical Arminian theology has a rightful place in the evangelical church because it maintains deep roots within Reformational theology, even though it maintains important differences from Calvinism.

Myths addressed include:

  • Myth 1: Arminian Theology Is the Opposite of Calvinist/Reformed Theology
  • Myth 2: A Hybrid of Calvinism and Arminianism Is Possible
  • Myth 3: Arminianism Is Not an Orthodox Evangelical Option
  • Myth 4: The Heart of Arminianism Is Belief in Free Will
  • Myth 5: Arminian Theology Denies the Sovereignty of God
  • Myth 6: Arminianism Is a Human-Centred Theology
  • Myth 7: Arminianism Is Not a Theology of Grace
  • Myth 8: Arminians Do Not Believe in Predestination
  • Myth 9: Arminian Theology Denies Justification by Grace Alone Through Faith Alone
  • Myth 10: All Arminians Believe in the Governmental Theory of the Atonement
Roger E Olson deals with the myths and misconceptions in detail, arguing powerfully that the Arminian tradition has a rightful place within evangelicalism because it maintains deep roots in Reformation doctrine. 250 pages, from IVP.

"Roger Olson's new book,Arminian Theology,provides the definitive defense of Arminian theology to date. This winsome and well-crafted work dispels chapter by chapter the ten major misconceptions or myths about Arminian theology perpetuated by foes and friends alike. While intended for a wide and general readership, this well-researched and documented text is really a profound essay in historical theology in which Olson gives voice to leading Arminian theologians past and present, allowing them to speak for themselves and define what Arminianism really stands for. Thus, not an exercise in defense,Arminian Theologyis the most lucid and effective book-length restatement of true Arminianism in print today. Olson's gracious and irenic spirit shines through the text even while his scholarly documentation of point after point shreds the many misperceptions of Arminian theology so prevalent today. This is a must-read book for educated laypersons, pastors, and scholars interested in, and concerned about, the current and historic debates between Calvinists and Arminians.Arminian Theologycertainly raises the theological bar against those who want to theologically discredit Arminianism and relegate it to the backwaters of history and the life of the church."
