Not only does Michael Lynch here provide an accomplished reassessment of John Davenant's 'hypothetical universalism,' but he also argues for a major rethinking of this issue within the Christian theological tradition. This is a work brimming with new discoveries and insights that should change how historians of Reformed theology approach a whole range of theologians and related issues. This is original work of the greatest importance. * Anthony Milton, Professor of History, University of Sheffield * Michael Lynch's closely argued but engaging study offers what is undoubtedly the most sophisticated analysis of Davenant's hypothetical universalism currently available. Approaching Davenant's theology through a deftly-drawn background of medieval and early Reformation thought on the atonement, as well as a revelatory account of the British Delegation's activity at the Synod of Dort, Lynch puts together a compelling case that Davenant's hypothetical universalism should be considered a well-rooted variant within, rather than a deviation from, Reformed Orthodoxy. This learned and informative discussion will repay careful consideration by scholars of the English Church and the wider Reformed Tradition alike. * Stephen Hampton, Dean of Peterhouse, Cambridge * It is arguable that in no other area of Reformed theology has the debate about its development proved more tricky and more contentious, and more difficult to separate historical analysis from later polemics, than the atonement. That fact alone makes Michael Lynch's study of John Davenant a signal achievement. Lynch successfully demonstrates that Davenant's thought can only be understood when his work is allowed to speak for itself. This book is a significant contribution to the growing body of scholarship on Reformed Orthodoxy, a welcome analysis of a key but neglected Reformed theologian, and a great example of how to do historical theology. * Carl R Trueman, Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies, Grove City College *
