Chapter Summary

The book Arminius on the Assurance of Salvation: The Context, Roots, and Shape of the Leiden Debate, 1603-1609 describes and analyzes Jacobus Arminius’s doctrine of salvation in general and his doctrine of the assurance of salvation in particular, thus supplementing current scholarship on Arminius and on Reformed soteriology. In view of this goal, Arminius and his theology have been placed in their academic context at the University of Leiden and his views of the ontology of salvation and the epistemology of salvation have been examined. Throughout the book, the author provides a comparative analysis of Arminius and his closest Reformed contemporaries that demonstrates both the similarities and the differences in their systems, thus further illuminating the roots of the Arminian debate in Leiden and the low countries. This chapter recapitulates some of the chief conclusions of the book and reiterates the position of assurance in the overall thought of Arminius.
