This booklet aims to introduce Voetius to an English readership and to show how he wed a reformed scholastic methodology to a heartfelt piety. Standing at the pinnacle of scholasticism immediately prior to its disintegration, Voetius illustrates how orthodox Reformed theologians used scholasticism as a methodology which, contrary to the oft-repeated caricature, promoted neither a departure from Calvin’s theology nor a dead orthodoxy.
The church today needs Voetius' balance of systematic and experiential theology to promote what John Murray has aptly called "intelligent piety."
