A study of Jacob Arminius’s theology that shows how he deviated from the Reformed churches and presented an alternative Protestant conception of salvation.
J. V. Fesko has repeatedly shown himself to be an expert interpreter of the Reformed tradition’s history on both the doctrinal and contextual fronts. In this insightful volume on Jacob Arminius, he applies that same care to one of the classic foils of Reformed theology, giving nuanced exposition to Arminius’s thought on the nature of divine grace and our salvation and exploring how Arminius developed his views even from within the context of a Reformed church and university.

In his well-known lucid academic style, Dr. Fesko paints a clear and honest picture of the theology of Arminius. A careful analysis of the sources combined with placing Arminius in the context of early modern Calvinism makes this book a great contribution to the history and the lasting relevance of Reformed theology.
