Saved by Grace – Introduction, and The Occasion and Rise of the Controversy

The Introduction is a reminder of the historic Synod Utrecht of the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands in 1905 and the contributions of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck’s theology to the debates at that time. Bavinck’s book on calling and regeneration is placed in its historic and theological context.

Supra, Infra, and Biblical Theology

This article is about supralapsarianism and infralapsarianism and the decrees of God. It makes the case that supralapsarianism is less consistent with the biblical-theological eschatology principle, in that it makes creation a means to redemption. The author also offers a possible modification of infralapsarianism, to address the objection that it fails to do full justice to the glory and sovereignty of God.
