Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the apparent conflict between the apostles Paul and James in their teachings on justification, an exegetical embarrassment which has never ceased to cast its shadow over the doctrine of gratuitous justification. It shows that, consistently with Calvin's overall position, Tillotson actually clarifies and rectifies the one questionable element in the Reformer's otherwise cogent theology of justification.

Keywords: Protestant Reformation; justification; John Owen; John Wesley; Richard Baxter; John Tillotson; apostles; Calvinism
