This issue of the Journal for Baptist Theology and Ministry is the first of two dedicated to exploring the soteriological issues addressed by “A Statement of the Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God’s Plan of Salvation” as a result of criticism of that statement. The so called “traditional view” is typically really Arminian, though the views presented by the authors do not necessarily represent the views of SEA. A table of contents is included below.
