Greg (Baptist minister)5 Stars Out Of 5Arminius vindicated - again!April 6, 2015Greg (Baptist minister)Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an excellent text by a very capable scholar, well equipped theologically and linguistically for his task. Picirilli shows (again) quite conclusively that a monumental disservice has been done in the history of theology to that great Dutch scholar and gracious Christian Dr Jacobus Arminius (1560-1609), Professor of Theology at the University of Leiden. His courage in challenging from Scripture the dominant Calvinism of his native Holland eventually led to his vilification at the Synod of Dort, and the subsequent misrepresentation of his views for centuries, even to our own day. Picirilli, in treating this controversy in the context of a fine Biblical exposition of the doctrine of salvation, has given us an excellent book, marked by lucid exposition of relevant Biblical texts. Picirilli's book stands worthily with other recent and excellent books by Roger Olson, Jerry Walls inter alia. A "must read" for thinking Christians.
The Seeking DiscipleLexington, SCAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Defense for Classical ArminianismFebruary 26, 2011The Seeking DiscipleLexington, SCAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. Picirilli's book is an excellent and well thought out defense for the theological thinking of Jacobus Arminius known as Arminianism. In this work, Dr. Picirilli argues for a return to the classical theology that Arminius built from the Scriptures. He begins by tracing the history of Arminianism and then he begins to look at the issues involving Arminianism versus Calvinism. The book is easy to read and each chapter builds on the others.
Overall this is an excellent work and will help the Arminian know their beliefs as well as answer those questions by those curious about what Arminians believe.
DonaldH4 Stars Out Of 5October 13, 2009DonaldHHe did an excellent job on the subject matter. I gave it four stars, it's readable for people that are well read. But for someone looking for the basics, I think someone should write a text - Arminianism For Dummies.
