This book, however, was a breath of fresh air in many respects. Roger Olson debunks 10 myths about Arminianism which are often put forward by Calvinists or even Arminians who do not know any better.


I do highly recommend this book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Olson holds that God is sovereign over all arminiaba sin.

Before I became a Molinist, I thought the same thing. Olson does a good job in defending Arminianism from the host of myths and misinformation that Calvinists have laid to its charge over the centuries.

My only gripe is that he constantly refers to an issue of Modern Reformation magazine dating back to From this introduction, Olson then thoroughly debunks ten of the most common misunderstands around Arminian theology: I gave the book two stars because it was, as the rating system indicates, “okay. Olson’s primary argument in this book is a distinction between Semi-Pelagianism and Arminianism.

Olsen allows for a person, like me, to say they don’t know, but shows that while there is common ground between Calvinism and Arminianism, they are different enough you can’t be both.

Reading another book, “Four Views On Eternal Security”, confirmed my suspicion that no, all Arminians don’t fit into the same box. He is also coauthor of 20th-Century Theology.

Recommended to Pat by: The book also shows why there is such a gap between the two today as Calvinism morphed into hyper Calvinism, and Arminianism morphed into semi-Pelagianism, both of which This book should be read by every serious student of the word of God.

I’ve seen two patterns in other writings – there are either two categories that everybody fits into Calvinism or Arminianism or there I will admit – like a lot of people, I received my impression of what Arminian Theology was from those who consider it to be a flawed belief if not a false gospel.

Arminian Theology is an excellent reference for both Calvinists and Arminians to clarify what is Arminianism, how it realirades from Calvinism and Pelagianism, and why it found the implications of Calvinism ,itos.
