The Consistent Calvinism Of The New Divinity Movement
William & Mary Quarterly
The New Divinity theologians opposed compromise with Arminianism, and held fast to the doctrine that God's sovereignty did not excuse sinners from responsibility for their own damnation. Discusses disagreements among Calvinists over atonement, original sin, and moral agency. The New Divinity resisted the enthusiasm of the Great Awakening. The aggressive defense of Calvinism and the quest for a reconciliation of freedom and necessity contributed to a new spirit among the New England clergy.
