"[Stanglin and McCall] have set out to write a clear, balanced, and sympathetic introduction to the theology of the Dutch theologian, Jacob Arminius (1559-1609)... This book presents the teaching of Arminius on God and Christ, creation and fall, sin and salvation, grace and predestination. Ultimately it shows that Arminius taught what we might call a very Augustinian Arminianism... It succeeds in what it set out to do: present an introduction to the theology of Arminius. The book helped me see Arminius as a theologian of the goodness of God." --W. Robert Godfrey, President and Professor of Church History, Westminster Seminary California
"Keith Stanglin and Thomas McCall have provided a much needed introduction to the thought of this major theologian that is both scholarly and accessible. They set aside the prejudices and stereotypes that have often plagued the study of Arminius and provide a significant access to the main themes of his thought--a work to be studied by scholars in the field and valued by all students of the early modern roots of contemporary Protestant thought."--Richard A. Muller, P. J. Zondervan Professor of Historical Theology, Calvin Theological Seminary

Thankfully we have this book. This book is a must read for Arminians and for those interested in Arminianism. Don't bother trying to understand Arminianism through Calvinists but instead, read Arminius. This book covers not just a brief overview of the life of Arminius but also his major writings. All that we have of Arminius is lost to us today except his debates that he had with Calvinists of his day. We must bear in mind that Arminius was dead by the time of the Synod of Dort which was a kangaroo court and was not open to hearing a fair defense of Arminianism.
Arminius was a great man. He was a reformer in every sense of the word. I often see Luther, Knox, and Calvin all lifted up as great reformers of the Church but Arminius was also a great reformer. In many ways, I put him past these men. Arminius corrected Calvin and moved us closer to a pure understanding of the gospel. His life was marked by debates but also of his pastoring and loving people into the kingdom.
Overall, all disciples of Jesus need to read this book. You'll learn much about the man Arminius and his theology and perhaps will see that he is not what you thought he was from reading Calvinists.
