    Arminian 'covenant' theology

    Do you know of any resources that detail the classical Arminian (Remonstrant) view(s) on the covenant? Considering the fact that Arminianism came out of the Reformed churches, it seems likely to me that they held to some kind of covenant theology.

    According to Dr. Clark, the Arminians rejected the Covenant of Works, but I wonder what their articulation of the covenant of grace and covenant of redemption would be?

    Well, since they don't believe in Predestination and deny irresistable grace I bet you would find their argument to go along the lines of Arminius or Erasmus.

    They would have to deny Covenant Theology.

    Yes and no. I assume they would have affirmed a covenant theology but denied Reformed covenant theology.

    Daniel,

    See Richard A. Muller, "The Federal Motif in Seventeenth Century Arminian Theology," Nederlands Archief voor Kerkengescheidnis 62 (1982): 102-22

    You can probably get it through inter-library loan. Most public libraries do this at no additional cost (to the taxes you pay already). Failing that, email me and I can perhaps help.

    Berkhof has a good review of the Arminian view in his Systematic Theology.

    Arminius' writings would be a good source as well.
