Thomas A. Noble, “Grace and Election in the Theology of John Wesley and T.F. Torrance”

Abstract: The theme of grace is an important one in the theology of John Wesley and in the theology of T. F. Torrance. Since most readers of Participatio are likely to be less familiar with Wesley, we shall begin by looking at two contemporary studies of his thought which highlight the theme of grace, and then look back into the Arminian tradition in which he professed to stand. That will then allow us to look at the more specific characterization of Wesley as an evangelical Arminian (as opposed to other kinds), and we shall then in conclusion compare and contrast his doctrines of grace and election with those of T. F. Torrance.
