William Romaine

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from William Romaine's A Treatise upon the Life of Faith (1764). Romaine was ordained a deacon in the Anglican Church in 1736 and a minister two years later. Theologically, he adhered to a moderate form of Calvinism, championing the doctrine of election and rejecting the Arminianism of Wesleyan Methodism despite an amiable relationship with the brothers John and Charles Wesley. In his Treatise upon the Life of Faith, Romaine argued that faith is a divine gift that cannot be earned and strongly urged his readers to pursue a life of holiness in order to have peace and happiness.

Keywords:   faith, William Romaine, A Treatise upon the Life of Faith, Calvinism, Arminianism, John Wesley, Charles Wesley, holiness, peace, happiness
