A Display of Arminianism (Owen)

(You save $2.45 )
Old Paths Gospel Press

Of the seventeenth-century Puritans, John Owen was by far the most influential. His defenses of the Reformed faith were so articulate and precise that they stand unrefuted even to this day. In this book, Owen meticulously exposes from the Scriptures the heresy of Arminianism, or Semi-Pelagianism, and shows that its doctrine of free will stands opposed to the biblical doctrine of the sovereignty of God.
