(p.112) Chapter 7 Libertarian Calvinism
Free Will and Classical Theism

Oliver D. Crisp

Oxford University Press

It is often thought that theologians in the Reformed tradition are committed to some version of theological determinism. However, things may not be quite so clear cut: some Reformed theologians have denied that their views imply determinism. In an attempt to clarify this issue, Oliver D. Crisp’s essay considers whether it is possible to be reformed without commitment to determinism. In the course of his argument he also sets out a libertarian version of Calvinism, which appears to be consistent with the confessions of the Reformed tradition, particularly the Westminster Confession of Faith, which is the historic subordinate norm for much Presbyterian theology.
