Four Views on the Warining Passages in Hebrews.(Grand Rapids: Kregel Academic, 2007) Kindle editionINTRODUCTIONThe Four Views of the Warning Passages in Hebrews, by the general editor Herbert W. Bateman IV is a great read. The Letter to the Hebrews is one of the most challenging topics among scholars. However, In Four views of the Warning Passages in Hebrewsthe reader is introduce to four New Testament scholars that contribute to the work; Grant Osborne (Classical Arminian), Buist Fanning (Classical reformed), Gareth Cockerill (Wesleyan Arminian) and Randall Gleason (Moderate Reform) 1and each give their perspective views in a fashion that is methodical. The editor Herbert Bateman can best summon up the warning passages, “The warning passages clearly force us to addressthe issue of assurance and the doctrine of eternal security.”2CLASSICAL ARMINIAN POSITIONOne of the most ongoing debates throughout history has been between the Calvinist and Arminian.
