Author: Arminius, Jacobus (1560-1609)
Jacobus Arminius, a 16th
century, Dutch Reformed theologian, had a profound impact
on John and Charles Wesley, and consequently contemporary
Protestantism. But Arminius is perhaps best known as the
father of Arminianism--a theological position which
challenges Calvinism. Yet, Arminius' own work is often
neglected. This three volume set, the Works of James
Arminius, attempts to fix that neglect. It brings together some of
Arminius' most important works, such as the "Declarations of Sentiment"
(volume I), his commentary on Romans 7 (volume II), his letters (volume
III), and "Nine Questions" (volume I). It also contains a variety of
interesting, but lesser-known treatises as well. As a whole, these
volumes will challenge the way you believe; they contain more than
simply critiques of Calvinism, but also subtle and instructive
theological ideas. The Works of James Arminius shows that
should be studied along with other great theologians such as St.
Augustine, St. Anselm, St. Aquinas, and Calvin. Ideal for anyone
interested in the reformation or Arminianism, the Works of James
Arminius is an instructive and important text.
