Arminian Theology: Myths and Realities - eBook
Given the choice, I would always rather have my opinions presented and explained by a competent opponent than an incompetent friend; but my strong preference is for a competent friend to undertake the task. Thus, it is always very useful to have those views with which we disagree explained to us by those who are competent and sympathetic to the views under discussion. Of such is this book by Roger Olson. While few readers of New Horizons will be in much sympathy with Olson's theology, it is nonetheless useful to have a book on Arminianism written by an Arminian. Olson's purpose is twofold: to clarify Arminian theology through refutation of ten myths about this theological tradition which Reformed people propagate; and thus to further rapprochement and dialogue between the two traditions. He is basically successful in the first; but I think the very clarity of his presentation will leave readers with a renewed and helpfully clarified appreciation of how great the divide is between the two. The myths Olson refutes are: Arminian theology is the opposite of Calvinist theology; a hybrid of Calvinism and Arminianism is possible; Arminianism is not an orthodox evangelical option; the heart of Arminianism is belief in free will; Arminian theology denies the sovereignty of God; Arminianism is a human-centered theology; Arminianism is not a theology of grace; Arminians do not believe in predestination; Arminian theology denies justification by grace alone through faith alone; all Arminians believe in the governmental theory of atonement.

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. The issues are alive because they concern matters of central importance to Christian faith. In this book Roger Olson gently and firmly corrects misunderstandings of Arminian theology that are often held by Calvinists--and Arminians! His deft expositions of the historical texts offer a significant contribution to the health of theological reflection and relationships. At the same time he demonstrates how to be irenic without adopting an empty tolerance that makes doctrine irrelevant to the church's life and mission. He introduces his readers to a large world which many will never before have entered, the world of Arminian and Wesleyan theology, and even those familiar with this world will become more informed about it.

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. Whether we advocate a particular theological perspective or not, it is imperative that we as Christians describe other theological perspectives with integrity, fairly and accurately. Olson is to be complimented for this excellent contribution. It is an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to gain a cogent and perspicacious introduction to historical, evangelical Arminian theology.

Беккер поблагодарил. Отпил глоток и чуть не поперхнулся. Ничего себе капелька. В голове у нее стучало. Повернувшись, она увидела, как за стеной, в шифровалке, Чатрукьян что-то говорит Хейлу.
- Это прозвучало как сигнал к окончанию разговора. Он отпил глоток кофе. - А теперь прошу меня извинить. Мне нужно поработать.
