Chapter Summary

As an examination of Jacobus Arminius’s doctrine of the assurance of salvation, this book Arminius on the Assurance of Salvation: The Context, Roots, and Shape of the Leiden Debate, 1603-1609 is primarily concerned with what we may call the epistemological question concerning soteriology, that is, how one knows whether one is saved. Such a discussion presupposes at least a cursory familiarity with Arminius’s doctrine of salvation in general, especially the ontological question, that is, what is salvation, or how one is saved. For the purpose of laying a foundation for the assurance discussion, this chapter sets soteriological debate in its theological and historical context. It surveys the broad contours of Arminius’s soteriology in its Leiden context. The chapter reveals certain significant features of Arminius’s theology and gives the reader a sense of the shape of his soteriology. The order of the Disputationes privatae reveals the shape of Arminius’s ordo salutis.
