This book examines and compares the theological views of Dr John
Owen (1616-83), the Puritan pastor and theologian, and John Wesley
(1703-91), the evangelist and founder of Methodism. Protracted
doctrinal debate occurred during their lives over the doctrines of
atonement and justification, Owen and Wesley representing the
Calvinist and Arminian interpretations of the controversy. The
author demonstrates that the Arminian reaction to 17th century high
Calvinism might have been avoided had theologians like John Owen
pursued the relatively moderate theological formulations of John
Calvin and his 16th century colleagues. The analysis seeks both to
assess the various aspects of the debate within the context of
historical theology, and to evaluate them according to the criteria
of biblical exegesis. The author discusses the philosophical
foundations of the ultra-orthodoxy of John Owen and offers a
positive solution to a controversy which was shelved rather than
solved, and which continues to vex those who seek a coherent
biblical grasp of the Reformed Faith.
