The Francis Asbury Society

A Day with Jacob Arminius


On April 5th, FAS will partner with the Asbury University Department of Christian Studies & Philosophy to host “A Day with Jacob Arminius.” Authors Keith Stanglin and our own board member Tom McCall will be lecturing on their recent book published through Oxford University Press:  Jacob Arminius, Theologian of Grace.

Jacob Arminius (1559-1609) is one of the few theologians in the history of Christianity who has lent his name to a significant theological movement. The dissemination of his thought throughout Europe, Great Britain, and North America, along with the appeal of his ideas in current Protestant evangelical spheres (whether rightly understood or misunderstood), continue to attract both scholarly and popular attention. Keith D. Stanglin and Thomas H. McCall’s Jacob Arminius offers a constructive synthesis of the current state of Arminius studies. There is a chasm separating technical, scholarly discussions of Arminius and popular-level appeals to his thought. The authors seek to bridge the scholarly and general discussions, providing an account based on interaction with all the primary sources and latest secondary research that will be helpful to the scholar as well as comprehensible and relevant to the undergraduate student.

This event is free and open to the public. Please attend any or all lectures at your convenience.

Note: This event will be held on the campus of Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky. All sessions will take place in the Kinlaw Library board room.
