Lists with This Book. Jan 07, Paul rated it it was amazing Shelves: Myths and Realities IVP, Calvinists or Reformed should buy this book and add it to their library. This is especially true for Calvinists who engage in theological dialog with Arminians on the internet or at the workplace or at school. It will prove useful in at least four ways: That is, he is simply explaining what Arminian theology is. Put briefly, Olson mito on the above: Another key doctrine is prevenient grace.
Arminians have had a high view of sovereignty and providence. It does not believe in some innate goodness of man. Many non-Arminians have noted this.
Man ee be saved without grace. It is a conditional predestination. God predestines to save all those who freely believe on Jesus Christ. Many other Arminians have followed suit. Some Arminians have held problematic views, but then so have some Calvinists.
Arminius and others held to a penal substitution view. I did feel he was a bit condescending at times realidadess Calvinists, but perhaps this is justified by what he takes to be hundreds of years of misrepresentations and hurtful comments directed towards his theological niche. An ironic and unfortunate aspect to the book was that Olson displayed his own unfamiliarity with Calvinism and seemed unable to use less emotionally charged words when describing it. Given his desire to be more descriptive in his approach, and his admitted wide target audience rather than specialists 10he failed to make some important distinctions and qualifications.
One of his main desires was to show that Arminianism is a legitimate evangelical option at one level, this is true.
No doubt this is what they believe, but the same sentiments are uttered by Mormons when accused of denying certain Christian doctrines. Frequently Olson responds to charges by claiming that Arminians have said the opposite. For example, Arminians say believe that grace is necessary for salvation and that salvation is all of grace, and, teklogia one sense, they do believe this.
Other times I think Olsen confused misrepresentations with logical entailments. So, some of the things said against Arminians were meant as logical conclusions from their position. It seems to me that the charitable interpretation of some Calvinists who claim that Arminians deny sola gratia is that they realjdades claiming that the Arminian position logically denies the biblical teaching on sola gratiawhether they come right out and say this or not.
Or, that since the Arminian position holds an unbiblical view of grace, then that they hold to salvation by grace alone is true in an attenuated way, and ultimately uninteresting as a biblical statement on the matter. But, if some people have given the impression that Arminians deny salvation by grace alone in any sensethey should be corrected.
And, if Calvinists have contributed to this misunderstanding, they should take more caution to properly represent their opponents. I empathize with his frustration at misrepresentations of his position, and some of the hurtful things that can be said in zealous attempts to show a position in error.
I am positive he arminianw a genuine desire to be faithful to the Bible. I am thankful for the time he took to lay out his position on many issues in a clear and concise way. I would not claim that his Arminianism will keep him from salvation, or that we are not both united to Christ, part of the same body. Having shown my desire to not commit fratricide, I must now desist with the three-hanky and commence with some critical analysis.
For those interested, I continue this review here amd make some heavy critical comments. Mitod 28, Adam Balshan rated it liked it Shelves: A good resource for the serious Arminian theologian who wants the tradition of Arminius 3.
A good resource for the serious Arminian theologian who wants the tradition of Arminius and those who followed him disambiguated from later Arminians who disagreed or departed that tradition.
Arminian Theology: Myths and Realities by Roger E. Olson
Feb 21, David Varney added it Shelves: As is so often the case in theology, one side presents the other’s case in an almost unrecognisable fashion so that lkvro end up arguing with straw-men rather than the opposition’s case in reality. What Olson does really well in this book is presenting a clear and careful treatment of classical Arminian theology, beginning with Arminius himself, and working through the ages by referring to arminiaba classical Arminians such as Wesley, Miley, Wiley, Summers and Oden.
Much of what he does is also refute As is so often the case in theology, one side presents the other’s case in an almost unrecognisable fashion so that they end up arguing with straw-men rather than the opposition’s case in reality.
Much of what he does is also refute other mistaken positions that have come from the later Remonstrant Arminians and others that have deviated from classical Arminianism but have helped the opposition to build a case.
Arminian Theology: Myths and Realities
Olson is generally fair and honest in his comments on Calvinism and also the weaknesses of his own system. My only gripe is that he constantly refers to an issue of Modern Reformation magazine dating back to This single issue seems to provide all of the material he uses despite admitting in a footnote that Horton has since changed his position on Evangelical Arminianism.
Overall my understanding of Arminian theology has been greatly strengthened and this title is well worth getting hold of for anyone seeking to engage with Arminian theology. Aug 27, J. Rutherford rated it liked it. I found Olson’s book to be very useful, but also desperately lacking in areas beyond just the usual Arminian-Calvinist divide in which I find myself on the opposite side of Olson. This book is incredibly useful as resource for getting to know historical and contemporary Arminian theology, for an Arminian this will help them understand their theology better, for a Calvinist this will furnish you with a better understanding of the theology that many Evangelicals adhere to.

Though it is a useful I found Olson’s book to be very useful, but also desperately lacking realicades areas beyond just the usual Arminian-Calvinist divide in which I find myself on the opposite side of Olson.
Though it is a useful resource, I found that Olson disingenuously described realidadrs few Calvinist beliefs and that he did a better job unintentionally proving that the Libertarian definition of free will and human responsibility is the heart of Arminianism over either God’s nature as he claims or free will as many opponents claim.
If someone unfamiliar with contemporary Calvinism reads this book they will come away having a insufficient and distorted understanding of it, arrminiana if you are going to read this book also read a good contemporary treatment of Calvinistic belief from a Calvinistic writer Packer, Piper, Sproul, Carson, Schriener, etc For my full review of Olson’s Arminian Theology go here; https: Mar 07, Jonny added it Shelves: My problem with this book is that it was a huge deflection.
The problem with Arminianism is more than historical, it is logical, theological, and scriptural.
All these problems have been thrown against Arminianism over the ages, and Olson seems to think he can solve them by devoting a book to citing Arminians who explicitly realidaades certain charges.
Saying you believe x, y, or z doesn’t prove much if your argument can be defeated through multiple channels. It just proves your thinking is irrational My problem with this book is that it was a huge deflection.
Teo,ogia just proves your thinking is irrational or inconsistent. There’s way too much playing afminiana victim in this book. The chapter about the history of Arminianism was admirable though. On every single page, he had the honesty to highlight Arminians throughout history who were also Pelagian, Universalist, Unitarian, Liberal, etc.
But they’re the black sheep, right? Dec 20, Josh Pannell rated it really liked it. I am so glad that my initial thoughts were proven wrong. Though Olson’s writings are still full of sarcasm, demeaning statements, straw men, card stacking, and glittering generalities, I still found this book both helpful and informative overall.
Olson’s primary argument in this book is a distinction between Semi-Pelagianism and Arminianism. Olson does an incredible job. The historical research in this book After reading Olson’s “Against Calvinism” I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy this book. The historical research in this book is outstanding.

Because of the nature of the “myths” Olson addresses, at times this book’s repetition does get tedious. Olson defends his view very well. This is a must read for any person desiring to understand Historic Arminianism. Feb 25, Pat rated it liked it Recommends it for: Anyone truly interested in trying to understand Arminian theology without all the rhetoric. Recommended to Pat by: Read another of the author’s books and decided to give this one. A fairly realivades view of some of the myths about Arminian theology and the r reality.
The author presented views by certain Calvinist theologians and scholars and then presented the opposing views of their Arminian peers even the ones that aren’t necessarily favorable to Arminianism.
