    This is an excellent collection of essays by a number of protestant scholars (from a variety of protestant traditions) which provides powerful historical proof that protestant theologians, from the earliest years of the Reformation to the present day, have consistently used, and in some cases relied upon, the thought of Thomas Aquinas/5(6). Aquinas, Calvin, and Contemporary Protestant Thought: A Critique of Protestant Views on the Thought of Thomas Aquinas (Washington: Christian University Press, ). It is clear that Feser would celebrate any renewal of Aristotelianism (if, indeed, there is such a renewal) when he says "How significant is Aristotle? Well, I wouldn't want to.

    But Calvin insisted that heresy and blasphemy (the two concepts were sometimes used interchangeably by Protestant champions of persecution) insult the supreme majesty of God and should be punished for that reason. The punishment of heretics and blasphemers vindicates the honor of God. Calvin was the hardest among hard‐ liners.   John Calvin was a Gulliver in the land of Lilliputians, a titan in the midst of dwarfs. He stands head and shoulders above the rank and file of theologians, scholars, and biblical experts down through the ages. He abides in the elite company of men like Saint Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, and Jonathan Edwards.

      The Reformers are indebted to Aquinas for his trifold division of God's law (moral, judicial, ceremonial). Calvin and the Puritans agreed with him that musical instruments had no place in the worship of the church. His remarks on just war theory and the best form of government were very much in line with later Reformation thought. Some modern studies comparing the views of Aquinas and Calvin on predestination include Charles Partee, “Predestination in Aquinas and Calvin,” Reformed Review, 32, no. 1 (Fall ): ; Caspar Friethoff, Die Pradestinationslehre bei Thomas von Aquin und Calvin (Freiburg: St. Paulus, ); A.D.R. Polman, De praedestinatieleer van.

Arvin Vos is a protestant (in the reformed tradition) professor of philosophy. The purpose of the book is to show that there is a current trend in modern protestant thought to misinterpret Aquinas' thoughts. Aquinas, Calvin, & Contemporary Protestant Thought is an important work. It shows how there is much in common in Aquinas and Calvin's thought.

Later chapters also explore how today’s Protestants might appropriate the work of Aquinas to address a number of contemporary theological and philosophical issues. The authors set the record straight and disavow the widespread impression that Aquinas is an irrelevant figure for the history of Protestant thought.

On this subject Aquinas stands tall among medieval theologians, though he later came under serious fire by Protestant theologians. Like many medieval theologians, Thomas taught that Christians receive an infusion of grace at baptism that remains within the soul, though it does not take over the will and force it to do good works.

Thomas Aquinas has had a long but, on the whole, not very happy history among Protestants. While some early Protestant reformers were well versed in Thomistic theology, Martin Luther was not among of Luther’s important teachers were disciples of the Franciscan theologian William Ockham.

The Occamists taught a theology of grace that tilted in. I have taken this and some other extracts of Aquinas from Arvin Vos, Aquinas, Calvin, and Contemporary Protestant Thought (Grand Rapids: Wm. Eerdmans Publishing Co., ), [4] The presence here of the idea of personal merit, which came to be central to the opposition of the Reformation, reminds us of Thomas’s Roman Catholicism.

Aquinas’s thought is often considered an exemplary balance between Christian faith and natural reason. However, it is not always sufficiently clear what such balance consists of.
