Overview

In this current environment of growth among Traditional Calvinism, Arminians of all denominations are looking for a good resource from an Arminiam interpretation. Once again, Forlines and Pinson have worked together to provide such a resource. This book is a valuable contribution to the Arminian-Calvinist debate. Pinson has gleaned and edited the content related to the doctrine of salvation from Forlines' tone, The Quest for Truth, and arranged the material in logical order, in a reader-friendly fashion. The result is a smaller, more topic-specific book that will find an entirely new audience among Arminians who are seeking to defend their theological position against the rise of the New Calvinism. This is an excellent resource tool for further study of the Arminian view.

The Question of the Freedom of the Will: Probably the most enduring controversy over depravity centers on the will. Does fallen man have a free will? If descendants of Adam do not in some sense have freedom of will, they have lost their personhood. One of the factors involved in being a person is to have power of choice or the ability to will. They will can choose and act only to the extent that it is free. To deprive the will of freedom is to deprive it of being a will. I think the debate between Calvinism and Arminianism should be framed over whether fallen man is a functioning, personal being. Does he have a functioning mind, heart, and will?
