The polemical revisionary writings of 17th-century puritan pastor Anthony Wotton on topics such as Christa€™s redemptive suffering and the imputation of justifying righteousness, Goda€™s saving grace and the moral law, faith and works, and the gracious covenant and legal covenanta€”as well as the bitter doctrinal controversy that they stimulateda€”are examined in this scholarly study. The book also traces the Wottonian complexion of the theology of John Goodwin, who became, over the course of a 30-year period, a prolific exponent of unorthodox notionsa€”perhaps the most provocative of Englanda€™s learned a€œhereticsa€ and a€œblasphemersa€ in the age of the Long Parliament and the Interregnum. In analyzing contemporary responses to Wotton and Goodwin, this consideration reveals how fixed the core positions of orthodoxy were at the time, and how worrisome the challenges posed to them were. In reassessing and reimagining the use of certain theological language, Wotton and Goodwin exposed how unstable the communication of a€œtrutha€ could be, and their impact on traditional Calvinist theology is appraised in this book.Perez Zagorin, A History of Political Thought in the English Revolution (London: Routledge aamp; Ke- gan Paul, 1954), pp. 81a€“86; George L.
