About

About Dr. Muller & his Works

Dr. Richard A. Muller (see Wikipedia) is one of the foremost historians of Reformed theology from the Reformation and puritan eras and is a professor of historical theology at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  

Muller has been a tremendous influence in the surge in recent decades in exploring and furthering interest in reformed theology from its classical period.  All of his writings are eminently valuable.

Muller’s four volume magnum opus, Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics  Buy  gives a survey and analysis of the history of development of the major reformed doctrines of the first part of a systematic theology from the primary sources.

Muller is also noted for being a leading force in overturning the ‘Calvin vs. the Calvinists’ thesis, the notion that later scholastic Calvinism (characterized as a predestinarian system) was a deviation from the earlier humanism of Calvin.  Muller has successfully argued instead that later ‘Calvinism’ was an organic development of continuity, not just from Calvin (or even primarily from Calvin), but from the broader reformed tradition, and that not centered around predestination, but around traditional and Biblical loci, or topics.

Muller’s works reach far beyond these few points and have opened up to us a rich storehouse for all those who seek to recover Reformed orthodoxy with Reformed orthopraxy (right-conduct).

Duplex cognitio dei” in the Theology of Early Reformed Orthodoxy  1979  12 pp. in Sixteenth Century Journal 10 (1979): 51-61.  The article can be read for free if one opens up a JSTOR account.

The Latin means ‘the two-fold knowledge of God’, referring to Calvin’s phrase and idea that:

“…in the fashioning of the universe as in the general teaching of Scripture the Lord shows himself to be simply the creator.  Then in the face of Christ he shows himself the Redeemer.”

Audio Lecture

“Jonathan Edwards and the Absence of Free Choice: A Parting of Ways in the Reformed Tradition”  1 hour & 11 minutes, Sept. 29th, 2010, at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, being the Inaugural Lecture for the Jonathan Edwards Center.

This lecture was made into a journal article below: ‘Jonathan Edwards and the Absence of Free Choice’

“Jonathan Edwards is often regarded as an epitome of Calvinism for his teaching on the freedom of will, though he was, in his own time and for a century after his death, a much-debated thinker whose views polarized Reformed circles. This lecture will concentrate on Edwards’ reception in Britain, which has received little attention despite its significance in the Reformed tradition. Concentrating on two historical contexts, Dr. Muller will consider the mixed reception of Edwards’ thought, note differences between Edwards and the older Reformed orthodoxy, and point to a parting of the ways in the Reformed tradition that took place largely in the eighteenth century.”
