Please click on the link to view the Journal for Baptist Theology and Ministry (Spring 2011) Vol. 8.1: Calvinist, Arminian, and Baptist Perspectives on Soteriology. Please note that while there are articles from differing perspectives, the editorial lead of the journal tends to take the view that both Arminianism and Calvinism are wrong, but that the Baptist view is right. However, when one looks at the view presented as Baptist, it turns out to be a 4-point Arminian stance. Please also note SEA vice president James Leonard’s contribution to the journal issue as well as then SEA member’s Glen Shellrudes’s in a piece that appeared on SEA before its appearance in the journal. The table of contents is listed below.
