Welch President Matt Pinson Publishes 40 Questions About Arminianism

GALLATIN, TN—”On April 9, Kregel Academic published a new book by Welch College president Matt Pinson entitled 40 Questions About Arminianism. The book is an introduction to Arminianism to the wider evangelical community.

Kregel Academic is the academic imprint of Kregel Publishers, an evangelical publishing house in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The new book is the latest in the 40 Questions series, edited by Benjamin Merkle, Professor of New Testament at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Pinson said, “I’m so excited Kregel Academic has released this new book. It seeks to answer 40 key questions people often have about the theology that emerged from the teaching of the Dutch theologian Jacobus Arminius. It’s not intended just for Arminians but for people from diverse quadrants of the evangelical community who want a survey of the Arminian doctrine of salvation.”

A number of scholars have recommended the new book:
“. . . provides readers with the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with a vibrant, evangelical Arminianism that is rooted and grounded in Reformation theology.” —Robert E. Picirilli, Welch College

“. . . the best resource in print that provides trustworthy insight into a comparison of Arminianism and Calvinism . . . an irenic apologetic for which Arminius himself would issue high praise.” —W. Stephen Gunter, Duke Divinity School

“Anyone who wants to be thoroughly informed about Arminianism must read 40 Questions About Arminianism.” —Roger E. Olson, Baylor University

“. . . may well rank as the best available exposition of evangelical Arminianism . . . a gracious and profoundly learned response to the biblical Calvinism that I embrace.” —Michael A. G. Haykin, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Pinson conveys a beautiful irenic tone, helping inform fellow brothers and sisters in Christ about many of the frequently misunderstood features of the great tapestry which makes up Christian theology.” —Timothy Tennent, Asbury Theological Seminary

“Matthew Pinson cogently articulates what Arminius and Arminians actually believe, and why they believe it.” —Steve W. Lemke, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

“I’m not an Arminian. However, I am deeply appreciative of the Arminian theological tradition and its contributions to the church catholic. As such, I’m thankful that Matt Pinson has written this important volume.” —Nathan Finn, North Greenville University

“Pinson is very well versed in both Arminianism and Calvinism and challenges both Arminians and Calvinists to rediscover their shared Reformed roots, to get a clear picture of the real differences, and to engage once again in the real conversation about them.” —William den Boer, Theological University Kampen, the Netherlands, and author of God’s Twofold Love: The Theology of Jacob Arminius (1559-1609)
