Item description for Evangelical Heathenism: Examining Contemporary Revivalism by E. Calvin Beisner...

By starting with the definition of freedom as the "power of contrary choice," contemporary revivalism theology is forced ultimately to deny nearly the whole defining body of Christian faith: original sin, unregenerate man's moral inability, the imputation of Christ's righteousness in justification, the substitutionary atonement for sin, and the moral and intellectual infinity, perfection, and immutability of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Evangelical Heathenism: Examining Contemporary Revivalism?

Good Critique of the Moral Government Theory of the Atonement  Sep 24, 2007
This book is not so much a critique of American revivalism as it is a critique of the Moral Government theory of the atonement of Christ. Beisner takes the adherents of this theory to task for denying the complete foreknowledge of God, the total depravity of sinful humanity, and the substitutionary atonement of Christ to pay the price for our sins.

The MGT theory is that Christ died to satisfy God's moral government, but that it wasn't needed ot pay for original sin. Defenders of this theory also teach that we have to respond to the saving message of Christ and that we have the moral ability to do this (in spite of Ephesians 2:1-3, Romans 5:12-19, and other texts).

Beisner calls the book Evangelical Heathenism because holders of the MGT theory consider themselves evangelical and John Wesley considers them heathens (Strange reasoning if you ask me).

But I do think that Beisner succeeds in showing the errors of MGT thinking, and he calls on adherents of theory to repent and turn to the real God of the Bible.

I like how Beisner quotes extensively from Arminian literature to show that MGT is NOT a native Arminian idea. Beisner is also one of the few people who knows his stuff well enough to acknowledge that Arminius and Wesley believed in the total depravity of man and that we cannot save ourselves. I appreciate this very much because many Calvinist writers are dishonest and ignorant about Arminianism, and do not know that Classical Arminians would never accept the Pelagian and Semi-Pelagian ideas of MGT theorists.

Way to go Calvin Beisner!
