 Arminian based commentary?

Someone asked me the other day to recommend a good arminian based
commentary…I said Adam Clarke.

They asked for more…I said I didn’t know of any.

So I ask…do you?

A bit dated, but John Wesley's.

 Re:

Thanks Jimmy, I forgot about that.

Is Arminian theology fading out?

I mean are there any recent, 30 years or so, Aminian commentaries?

I never really thought about it until now.

 Re: Arminian based commentary?

I don't know of anyone except Wesley, but would like to make a suggestion: ;-)

If you are tending towards Armenianism get a Calvinistic commentary and study it.

If you are tending towards Calvinism, get an Armenian commentary and study it.

If you aren't sure, get both.

Either way - if you don't throw the book out of the window first - you will probably end up being a bit more balanced in your theology on the subject!

Jeannette :-P

If you are in the third group you can do weight lifting with a book in each hand. That really would be balanced!

Sorry, but I just can't take Armenianism vs Calvinism very seriously any more. After wrestling with the subject for several years I eventually decided that both predestination and free will are true, and only God understands how that's possible.

 Re:

There are so few Arminian commentaries available today because:

A) Arminianism falters when the context is presented.
B) Arminians have tried, but become Calvinists once they get to Romans.
C) Arminians have so many differing views they can't agree on what Arminianism means.
D) They are too busy seeking the lost to worry about writing commentaries.

:-P

I'm no expert on commentaries, but it seems to me these days commentaries tend to be written by a single author concerning a single book of the Bible. Gone are the days where men publish full blown commentaries on the entire Bible.

However, to get an idea of what commentaries out there are coming from what perspective, I came across this little gem in seminary called:

"New Testament Commentary Survey" by D. A. Carson.

This book survey's commentaries, tells the strengths and weaknesses, and tells the general perspective of each commentator.

In my opinion, most evangelical commentaries come from a Reformed point of view, as most commentaries are written by academics, who tend to be of Reformed persuasion, as those of the Reformed persuasion have prided themselves on their standing within the academy.

If this is true I must not be the Arminian I thought I was! Actually I don't call myself an Arminian; he was far too Calvinist for my tastes.
