Stuart., PB Paternoster, an imprint of Authentic Media PP Bletchley, Milton Keynes; Waynesboro, GA YR 2006 SN 1842273981 9781842273982 AB Clarke examines the theological development of Arminius up to his magnum opus, the Declaration of Sentiments (1608). Arminius argued that Christ himself is the foundation of election, and that we are saved by a new relationship with God through Christ. Both these insights led him at last to reject the Calvinist concept of salvation and damnation through a hidden decree made in a Christ-less secret counsel of the divine wisdom. Arminius was unsuccessful in the short term, but this study contends that his views have much to teach us.
