Item Description...
This study takes the reader to the intriguing debates on justification in seventeenth-century English Puritan thought. Richard Baxter (1615-91), the well-known Kidderminster pastor and theologian, insisted that the Calvinists of his day, with their unyielding emphasis on the sola fide of the Reformation, ran the danger of ignoring the conditions that came with God's gift of the covenant of grace. Justification, Baxter insisted, required at least some degree of faith and works as the human response to the love of God. As one of his antagonists, John Crandon, put it: "If we magnifie one grain of our own pepper to that height that we make it a part of that righteousness by which to stand at Gods tribunall this one grain will sink us down to hell, so hot a poison is Mr. Brs pepper-corn." The mix of theological differences and unbending personality traits resulted in years of acrimonious and unyielding debate. Building on previous studies of Baxter's soteriology, this study maintains that Baxter is best understood as an eclectic scholastic covenantal theologian for whom the distinction between God's conditional covenant and his absolute will is key to the entire theological enterprise.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Serious printing flaw to book, be aware.  Jan 7, 2010
I purchased the book for re-sale and wanted to alert buyers that in my book, the hardcover (not a dust jacket, there is none) shows "A Hot Pepper Corn" and looks just like the picture shown. But the inside is a completely different book "Indonesian Syariah" Defining a National School of Law". Whether this is a legitimate copy from the publisher or is a knock off, I don't know. I recommend double checking the content if purchasing from a Marketplace seller.
