Perhaps this has been a theme of a thread in the past , but I will press ahead . This thread is meant mainly for the Calvinists here . What Arminians of the past and/or present do you respect despite their theological weaknesses ? Many Arminians of the past , for instance , were godly men who might have even been scholarly . There is much to learn from them . I place Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910) at the top of my list . He was a friend of Spurgeon . MacLaren's sermons were considered topnotch . I only have one ( in a collection of sermons by many preachers ) : The Pattern of Service . It was based on Mark 7:33,34 . At some point I will acquire a book of his messages . He is solid ( with qualifications ) . George Campbell Morgan ( 1863-1945 ) ranks rather high . He was the senior minister at Westminster Chapel in London . Morgan recruited Dr.Lloyd-Jones as his Associate pastor . I mentioned a book of sermons in the previous paragraph . Morgan has :The Perfect Ideal of Life . It is based on John 8:28-30 . His sermons are not really my cup of tea -- they're not doctrinal enough -- but they do show a keen intellect . I've had his life story by Harold Murray for several months . But I may donate it to my church library . I don't have any sermons or books by Frederick Brotherton Meyer ( 1847-1929 ) but I have known of him for a long time . If I can secure an inexpensive paperback by the man , I will . Well , my fellow beievers in the doctrine(s) of grace -- now it is your turn to name some notable ( or not so famous ) Arminians that you have looked up to .
