Girardeau, John – Calvinism and Evangelical Arminianism  Buy  1890  584 pp.

Evangelical Arminianism is the popular teaching of the church at large today.  It is often hard to pin down in order to analyze carefully.  Here Girardeau carefully articulates it and contrasts it to the Biblical truths of Election, Reprobation and Justification, which fully exposes the inadequacies of Evangelical Arminianism.  An easy to read book, but in-depth with much meat.




John ‘Rabbi’ Duncan

“Hyper-Calvinism is all house and no door: Arminianism is all door and no house.”

“Calvinism and Pelagianism are the only consistent systems.  Arminianism is utterly inconsistent and irrational.”
