Dr. Stewart and Tony:

I am disappointed that your discussions will be offline, for I would love to read and share in the interaction. I think it truly beneficial for all to see the alternative perspectives under the Calvinistic umbrella. Too often only one perspective is presented as true and all others judged invalid or inconsistent.

Would you reconsider and continue the discussion online?

I am not going to continue allowing you to antagonize commenters on this thread. Enough is enough. For the life of me, I do not understand. Not only has Tony been patient with you, but you had the opportunity to dialog with at least two accomplished scholars--Drs.

This stuff has been out there for years, but has been poo-pooed by the "post-Reformed orthodox" for years. See Janice Knight's: Orthodoxies in Massachusetts: Rereading American Puritanism. And I just heard an excellent paper on John Eaton at the Pac NW regional ETS meeting that supports Knight's contention.
