Brian Abasciano on Calling

, posted by SEA

This is an excerpt from Brian Abasciano, “Paul’s Use of the Old Testament in Romans 9.1-9: An Intertextual and Theological Exegesis” (Ph.D. thesis; University of Aberdeen, 2004). This doctoral thesis is available in full here at our site, and has been revised and published under the same title. This excerpt explains how the biblical concept of calling is not in line with the Calvinistic view of effectual calling, but actually supports Arminian theology.
