Item Description...
Provides a centrist between Arminian and Calvinist theologies. Examines teh relvant biblical, historical, and theological issues and how this view is more faithful to scripture.

Publishers Description
A revised and abridged edition of "Beyond Calvinism and Arminianism: An Inductive Mediate Theologyof Salvation," in Which theologian/missiologist Olson gives the fruit of a 25-year theological pilgrimage. His inductive focus on Scripture results in a middle view of salvation truth, thus resolving polarized extremes. This edition is much more readable and accessible for most Christians. The exegetical methodology emphasizes context, word studies, and grammar of all relevant passages, with extensive support for eternal security and refutation of deterministic concepts of salvation. In the foreword, Dr. Tim LaHaye refers to the incredible distribution of the academic edition, which sold out in 3 years. A revised academic edition is forthcoming in 2006.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
You can't have enough of these books  Apr 2, 2008
We need a thousand more books just like this, laying out these truths. If your familiar with the calvinist line, you know what a convoluted spider web it is. Where "God so loved the world" does not mean the whole world, and where "God wills that all be saved", means that God wills that only a *few selected all* be saved.

In this convoluted world, when a marriage proposal to be the bride of Christ is refused by a lost soul, it's just a sign that God made that proposal simply as a technicality, and with no true sincerity. Else He would have made that proposal too irresistible to refuse.

Remember, the only one who gets around well on a spider web... is the spider!

Having said that, this book will gladly fit in my library, but now that I have it, I realize that what I'm really looking for is a table of scriptures used by the calvin line, and revealing how they are twisted. A kind of a reference book, where the exegetical details are brought out on an as-needed basis. Unfortunately then, I found myself in this writing, wading through pages of flourish, hoping to get to the point.

You may also want to check out Dr. Laurence M. Vance's work. He lays out with pin-point accuracy all of today's manipulative tactics used in this spider web which puts God in an uncanny likeness to an Olympian deity.

Why do men showcase men?
Perhaps because secretly, they want to be seen of men and sit in the chief seats themselves.
The Holy Spirit is the Answer  Aug 10, 2007
One cannot understand salvation theology without contemplating the convicting work of the Holy Spirit. From Radical Calvinists to Wesleyans to Lutherans to Open Theism Arminians, no one seems to consider what it means for the Holy Spirit to convict of sin, judgement and righteousness. Olson understand the missing scholarship and gets the entire Christian community a real starting point for further thought.
Correcting Deductive Scholasticism  Jun 22, 2007
This is Dr. Olson's 2005 abridged and revised edition of his groundbreaking "Beyond Calvinism and Arminianism: An Inductive, Mediate Theology of Salvation" (2002). This version is suitable for Pastors, Elders, and laypeople alike who don't necessarily need all the exegetical details of the full version. Although we have been seeing more and more good books coming out on this important subject over recent years, I appreciate Dr. Olson's willingness to do a fresh exegesis on the issues at hand using an INDUCTIVE method. This is part of what puts this book head and shoulders above the rest. He is not afraid to dig deeper into resources that have been ignored by others, or to recognize that some Bible translations are better than others in some areas. Over the course of the book, he also enlightens the reader on how deductive/scholastic theologies have hindered the growth of the Church since the Reformation.

Furthermore, Dr. Olson goes on to point out how the MEDIATE position he is advocating is decidedly different from those who say one must be either an Arminian or Calvinist. I hope that this work will help put an end to that kind of deductive reasoning. He goes on to show how even church historians like Philip Schaff have recognized a Semi-Augustinian position going back many centuries [e.g. Volume 3, Chap. 9, 160]. He also rightly points out how Calvin's disciple, Beza, was one of main actors in moving "Calvinism" away from what Calvin taught. French Calvinism remained truer to Calvin over and against what the Dutch and English Calvinists developed after his death. In any case, Dr. Olson shows how biblical Evangelical Protestantism has moved beyond Calvin, who could not shake himself free from all the errors of the Roman Catholic Saint Augustine.

Some might ask why Dr. Olson goes into the history of missions and evangelism in relation to this topic, and therein lies another of this book's strengths! As an actual missionary who served in Pakistan, he has seen firsthand the deadening effects of deductive theologies on evangelism, and the growth of churches. Doctrine does indeed have serious application to evangelism. Beyond just rehashing many of the same old issues, as other books have done, Olson proves this has, and continues to be, a historical result of teaching Calvinism. Too many of today's Theology and Missions majors are still indoctrinated by materials written from a Reformed slant that gloss over the whole truth. Dr. Olson gives the reader just a taste of what the real story is.

As several of the book's endorsers have noted, in spite of its incredible distribution "The reason no one has attempted to refute it is that they cannot." I highly recommend both books not just to Biblicists, but also to everyone who sincerely desires to be a serious student of the Gospel!

Excellent  Jan 9, 2007
I have often been troubled by claims by friends that Salvation is limited to the "Elect" -- in that only those who have been "chosen" and "irresistibly drawn" can be saved, essentially saying all others have no hope of salvation. I have found Dr Olson's work gives a refreshingly clear approach to the vexing questions regarding God's sovereignty in salvation, and in detail shows that "whosoever will may come," provided they come through faith in the revealed Gospel. Salvation isn't limited, it is for all who believe.

I commend this book to all who may be similarly troubled. It looks at many "key" verses and by using basic Bible study disciplines disproves the errors of 'predeterminism.'

The book also addresses errors of universalism and "Arminianism" with clear answers for those vexed in these areas.
