The Arminian Theological Studies Collection (5 vols. – for Logos Bible Software) introduces a compilation of works on the theology of Arminianism from two of today’s top professors on the subject matter. Robert E. Picirilli and F. Leroy Forlines bring you a solid perspective on Reformed or Classical Arminianism. They find the basis of their theology not from Wesleyan Arminianism, but from biblical exposition and the teachings of Jacob Arminius himself. These five books cover the fundamental themes of salvation, justification, sanctification, perseverance, and election from a Free Will Baptist perspective. The Arminian Theological Studies Collection (5 vols.) is not only a great read for scholars, pastors, and students, but is aimed towards the modern reader who wants a deeper understanding of Arminius’ ideas and doctrines that created the Free Will Baptist church.
