I was not required to write a positive review. It must be that Olson didn’t understand what Craig meant. Another guiding principle should be ‘Do not impute to others beliefs you regard as logically entailed by their beliefs but that they explicitly deny’.
Myths and Realities IVP, The opinions I have expressed are my own. Many Calvinists have a grave heologia of classical Arminianism basically, I think, because they may not have not read Arminius’ “Works” I wonder if apologists like James White or theologians like MacArthur read it.
Olson closes his book with a plea for understanding and unity among Arminians and Calvinists. Indeed, if I had a penny every time some smart aleck purported to resolve the great Calvinist – Arminian debate by declaring “I’m a Calminian! The historical research in this book After reading Olson’s “Against Calvinism” I wasn’t teologix how much I would enjoy this book.
He is also coauthor of 20th-Century Theology. Oden, Olson introduces the reader to many orthodox Arminian thinkers while at the same time, pointing out the serious errors made by some thinkers who claimed to be Arminian but who often distorted Arminianism e.
That’s because that’s not the goal of this book. Olson addresses ten “myths” that theological opponents often make against Arminianism, such as “the heart of Arminianism is belief in free will” and “Arminians do not believe in predestination. I particularly liked the author’s conclusion in which he encouraged open dialogue among Calvinists and Arminians rather than the demonizing my word that often takes place.
Arminianism was the dominant Protestant soteriological framework for two hundred years, and is still prevalent amongst Methodists, Pentecostals, and a large chunk of Baptists today. This book is incredibly useful as resource for getting to know historical and contemporary Arminian theology, for an Arminian this will help them understand their theology better, for a Calvinist this will furnish you with a better understanding of the theology that many Evangelicals realivades to.
I was somewhat surprised to see in the classical sense, just how close Calvinism and Arminianism really are to one another. For the question of why you should adopt an Arminian view of soteriology, you should read Olson’s other books.
He allows tremendous grace for Christians teollogia hold to different positions, but sometimes I think he should have been more aggressive in pointing out difficulties with some of these positions i. Reformed Protestants are likely to dismiss it as either Pelagian or semi-Pelagian. Olson situates the Arminianism squarely within its Reformation heritage.
Recommended to Pat by: He does this by surveying the writings of Arminian thinkers throughout the centuries, starting with Jacob Arminius himself and then going on through John Wesley, and other major Christian theologians up to the modern era. When you look at the teolobia of the major Arminian theologians throughout the century, it is clear that Arminianism is much misunderstood by many of its critics. Lists with This Book.
Much of what he does is also refute As is so often the case in theology, one side presents the other’s case in an almost unrecognisable fashion so that they end up arguing with straw-men rather than the opposition’s case in reality.
I did feel he was a bit condescending at times towards Calvinists, but perhaps this is justified by what he teologka to be hundreds of years of misrepresentations and hurtful comments directed towards his theological niche. Olson very clearly and respectfully compares the differences and the similarities between classical Calvinism and classical Arminianism. It’s a wonderful book that works through ten common myths straw-men really about Arminian theology, e.
The value in “Arminian Theology” is the clarity he gives to Arminius’ teachings and points exactly where others have gotten it all wrong; and, I must admit, in my experience discussing Arminianism as compared to Calvinism, the Calvinist brings up these exact misrepresentations of Arminianism as Olson points out in the book. From this introduction, Olson then thoroughly debunks ten of the most common misun Arminianism is quite possibly the most misunderstand theological position within Christendom today arminiwna often misrepresented both by its opponents and adherents!
Mittospages. Jun 23, John Kight rated it mitoa was amazing. This is an excellent book for anyone seeking to understand Arminian theology properly, that is, as taught by James Arminius. I am thankful for the time he took to lay out his position on many issues in a clear and concise way. In the end, the myths are dispelled and the critiques of Arminianism are demonstrated to be fallacious.
Roger Olson debunks 10 myths about Arminianism which are often put forward by Calvinists or even Arminians who do not know any better.
