    I received a full scholarship to study at Asbury Theological Seminary. So far, the readings have been pretty diverse, including some Reformed authors.

    As you see it, what are the similarities between the Reformed and Wesleyan perspectives?

    (I know there are many differences, but I'd be interested to hear where you see overlap.)

    I think you will find that this is the case at most seminaries simply because most of the academic writing comes from reformed academics. I was genuinely shocked at some of the textbooks from reformed authors that were required when I was getting my undergraduate degree at Liberty.

    Do folks think it would be easier to point out the differences rather than the similarities?

    Hello jupebox, welcome to PB!

    I would think the basic difference is that the Wesleyans are -- those that are true to their doctrinal commitments -- hardcore Arminian, and having any paper from it would likely do you more harm in Reformed Baptist or Presbyterian circles than good.
