A Series on Wesleyan Prevenient Grace in William Burt Pope


At the beginning of the year, I asked Dr. David Fry, whose PhD dissertation at TEDS focused on Wesleyan prevenient grace, to help me think through the section on prevenient grace in William Burt Pope’s Compendium of Christian Theology. Our discussions led us to a wide range of topics (e.g., recapitulation, regeneration, justification, free will, the initium fidei, revival, preaching, evangelism, infant baptism, and the sacraments) and Christian thinkers (e.g., Irenaeus, Athanasius, John Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, Augustine, John Cassian, Pelagius, and Charles Finney). If you’re interested in listening through these discussions, I’ve organized the five-part series into one player for your convenience:
