Product Description
John Goodwin (1593-1665), the eminent Puritan Arminian divine, was a man ahead of his time who lived in a turbulent and eventful era in which many principals, both theological and governmental, were subjects of controversy.

In "Redemption Redeemed," completed in 1650, he provides a superb defense of the Biblical position of unlimited atonement. This work is an adversarial treatise in which he, step by step, examines the overwhelming scriptural and theological evidence that Christ died for all mankind. Goodwin also refutes the opposing Calvinistic arguments of his day and argues that God, through his grace, provides the opportunity for all people to be saved. Some of Goodwin's thoughts on God's foreknowledge, election and decrees are included as well.

The Methodist Quarterly Review noted: "Had 'Redemption Redeemed' been his only publication, it should have been enough in itself to perpetuate his (Goodwin's) fame. Its great learning, clear reasoning, sound judgment, and admirable spirit, render it worthy of the study of the lovers of this glorious doctrine, and the name of its author is one which all Arminians should delight to honor. A volume so ably written, and going to the bottom of the controversy, could not in that polemic age fail of creating a storm."

In the contemporary period, as Christians enter the 21st Century and Calvinisn with its disturbing implications is making a resurgence, Goodwin's master work is a welcome and much needed contribution to those seeking to understand the truths of God's word. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Redemption Redeemed a Must!
This is an invaluable companion tool to possess alongside your Bible for defending the biblical doctrine of an Unlimited Atonement of Christ Jesus. John D. Wagner has done the body of Christ an immense service in editing this treasure of a book.

John Goodwin (1593-1665), a Calvinist-turned-Arminian Puritan, defends the biblical doctrine of Unlimited Atonement utilizing both Scripture, church history, and logic. He leaves no stone unturned, but covers the subject in an exhaustive style. He even quotes from the likes of Luther, Melancthon, Chemnitius, and Calvin himself, demonstrating from their own writings the presence of a Universal Atonement, highlighting the fact that though Christ's sacrifice is sufficient to cover each and every individual, even intending (p. 129) to cover all people, His redemption will only be applied to the believer.

In an age when the false assumptions of Calvinism is growing, this book stands as a beacon of hope, exhorting every believer to preach and teach the atoning sacrifice of the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world (John 1.29). What John Owen's 'The Death of Death in the Death of Christ' is to the Calvinist, so is John Goodwin's 'Redemption Redeemed' to the Arminian. No other book I have read covers the doctrine with such thoroughness and clarity.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Defense of Unlimited Atonement I've Ever Read
John Goodwin, in his classic work Redemption Redeemed, presents us with a thorough examination of the doctrine of Unlimited Atonement, and should be a staple in any Arminian's library. Redemption Redeemed could potentially have the same sort of impact on Christian thinkers as John Edwards' Freedom of the Will, and if not, it should (in my humble opinion, Goodwin blows Edwards out of the water). The work is detailed and covers a broad range of Bible passages and relevant subjects. The language bears some of the seventeenth century style and therefore will be difficult for the average modern reader, but take your time and it will pay off. There is a lot of content, so I'll note a few examples.

In chapter 2, Goodwin focused on passages which state that God desired to save or propitiated for all men. At the forefront is 1 Timothy 2:1-6, where for example we read that "he wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth" (verse 4). What is especially handy here is that he not only did he provide a solid interpretation of this passage, he addressed specifically the various arguments of Calvinists that "all men" doesn't mean "all men." He demolished the interpretation of "all men" as "some of all sorts of men" thoroughly, an argument which is still frequently used today by Internet Calvinists. An aside, one observation you will walk away with from this book is that there is nothing new in Calvinist arguments, and folks like Goodwin already dealt with and refuted many arguments centuries ago, which are still propagated today.

There are many other relevant passages that Goodwin drew from, including many which I never thought of as supporting Unlimited Atonement until now. Chapter 5 started with the Parable of the Wedding Banquet, Matthew 22:1-10. As you may recall, the parable outlines a situation where a king's invitation to a banquet gets rejected by his friends. As a result the king instead invites average people off the street. The original invitees were symbolic of the Jews who rejected Christ and the gospel. Goodwin noted from this that as the king intended the banquet for his friends, God intended His grace to be for Jews first. Entailing from this, Christ died for Jewish people who would go on to reject Him. If this is the case then Christ died for people who wouldn't be saved, and therefore He died for all men. Now initially, it doesn't seem to logically follow, but think about it for a moment. If Christ died for one person who would ultimately be condemned, why would he not die for all others? Since God is not partial, one has to conclude that either Christ died only for the elect, or for all people. Since Christ died for some who were not elect, we are left with the only alternative, that He died for all people.

Goodwin was careful in his definition of Unlimited Atonement, neither providing a definition agreeable to Calvinists nor sliding down the slippery slope into Universalism. He spent a good portion of Chapter 6 explaining why the Arminian doctrine doesn't lead to Universalism and then refuted Universalism itself.

Redemption Redeemed is clearly an excellent work. There is much more that I haven't covered here, but I hope this review has whetted your appetite for a good, solid defense of the Arminian doctrine of Unlimited Atonement.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Puritan Defense of God's Love & Grace
It should be obvious to any objective student of the Word that the Calvinist doctrine commonly known as Limited Atonement did not come about through an inductive exegesis of the Scriptures, but instead through a rigid system of deductive logic imposed upon it. Although I have read and reviewed other books on this vitally important subject, I appreciated the fact that Puritan John Goodwin treats some passages not usually considered in some of the more modern works, and that he comes at it as a contemporary of the scholastic John Owen. Overall, it becomes blatantly and wonderfully obvious that God has indeed woven the doctrine of General Redemption throughout all of His Word!

In spite of the sometimes-heavy Puritan style of writing, I have to give this work a high rating for the following reasons:

As with all points of the Calvinist T.U.L.I.P., we find, and Goodwin reveals, that their "horrible decree" of Reprobation is always lurking in the shadows. Since, in their logic, God has in eternity past "decreed" that the vast majority of the human race were to be created by Him as already damned, and that that even "pleased" Him, why should Christ pay the ransom for their sins? This scholastic presupposition inexorably drags them to this end in spite of any normative interpretation of the many verses of Scripture involved. This error has forced Calvinism to become more philosophic and systematic than the Bible allows. In fact, Owen's notorious work "The Death of Death" is shown to be based on a faulty premise of "double payment".

Evangelism 101
Most importantly, and thus the importance of works like Goodwin's, is the sad and practical result of this doctrine: Limited Atonement deadens hearts to the fact of God's love manifest throughout the Scriptures to all sinners without exception. As Goodwin so aptly points out, "In all these Scriptures, with their fellows, evident it is that salvation is held forth and promised by God unto all, without exception, that shall believe; yea, that it is offered and promised unto all men, upon the condition of believing, whether they believe or no. So that, upon such declarations of the gracious and good pleasure of God toward the universality of men as these, the minister of the gospel, or any other men, may with truth, and ought of duty upon occasion, say to every particular soul of man under heaven, "If thou believest thou shalt be saved," even as Paul saith that he preached Christ, "warning EVERY man, and teaching EVERY man in all wisdom, that we might present EVERY man perfect in Christ Jesus" Colos. i.28. Yea, this apostle, saith, that God "now commandeth all men every where to repent, " Acts xvii. 30".

Goodwin's quote of Melanchthon puts it this way, "It is necessary to know that the gospel is a universal promise, i.e. that reconciliation" with God "is offered and promised to all men." And " it is necessary to hold fast against" any "dangerous conceits about predestination, lest we fall to reason thus, that this promise belongeth to some few others, but doth not belong unto us. But let us be resolved of this, that the promise of the gospel is universal. For as the preaching of repentance is universal, so the preaching of remission of sins is universal also. But that all men do not obtain the promises of the gospel," i.e. the things here promised, "it ariseth from hence, that all men do not believe."

This explains why, historically, Calvinists in general have always been so detached from missions and evangelism. Any objective study of men like Carey and Spurgeon reveals that they were at best "non-conformist" Calvinists and consequently persecuted by many of their own "brethren".

In addition, in chapter 8, Goodwin lists 32 noteworthy fathers of the early church, including St. Augustine, along with various synods and councils, which all held to General Redemption. Although this is not in itself authoritative, as their writings were not inspired, it is nonetheless interesting to note that this was without a doubt the view held by the vast majority in the church from the Apostles to even past Calvin's day. However inconsistent Calvin's teaching may have been in the conception of Limited Atonement, it was in fact, as Goodwin states, Calvin's disciple Beza who gave birth to it, and the Synod of Dort who fostered it. For those who call themselves "Augustinians" it should be rather ironic to note that part of St. Augustine's attack against the Pelagian error of his day was "to hold that Christ died not for all men" (p. 285). According to St. Augustine Limited Atonement is Pelgianism!

One last note, non-Arminian readers should be aware that Goodwin repeatedly states that a believer, although once saved, can lose his salvation. Statements like "...salvation is never conferred upon any man but upon his believing and continuance in believing unto the end", and believers must "believe perseveringly" bear this out (e.g. pg. 191).

For those who are looking for further biblical studies on General Redemption, please be sure to reference THE DEATH CHRIST DIED a Case for Unlimited Atonement by Robert Lightner, Did Christ Die Only for the Elect? A Treatise on the Extent of Christ's Atonement by Norman Douty, and the mediate position advocated in Getting the Gospel Right: A Balanced View of Calvinism and Arminianism by C. Gordon Olson (esp. Chap. 16).

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Treatment of Atonement Coverage
This excellent work is the most comprehensive treatment of Atonement Coverage I have seen. Not only does it encompass the broadest scope of Biblical texts in an exegetically accurate, responsible way, but it cites commentaries and works of theologians from Calvin and Melanchthon to authors contemporary to Puritan John Goodwin. These citations show that the L of TULIP is unfounded, both in careful Bible scholarship and by the observations of these noted scholars themselves.

I heartily recommend this work not only to those sympathetic toward "God so loved the (literal population of the entire) World"; "Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World (literal earth's population)" viewpoint. But also those disposed to "God so loved the (representative segments in the world) 'elect'"; "Look the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the (savable, atonable sectors of humanity) 'elect'."

5-0 out of 5 stars Goodwin - Redemption Redeemed
Goodwin, a rare Arminian Puritan, admirably defends unlimited atonement.Goodwin primarily argues from scripture, but he also provides some arguments from reason and church history.Goodwin's primary scriptural arguments are based on passages saying Christ died for the world, passages saying Christ died for all, the universal offer the gospel, passages saying Christ died for those that ultimately perish, and passages saying God wants none to perish.Goodwin then clearly explains what "unlimited atonement" does and does not mean.Goodwin finishes up with giving solid reasons why Christ died for all and reviewing the historical position of the Church on the issue.

Goodwin provides a unique level of depth on the issues.For example, he goes over the word "world" in great detail, and then reduces multiple Calvinist interpretations of passages like John 3:16 to absurdities. Goodwin covers multiple Calvinist counterarguments to all of his arguments.Through detailed explanations of his position, and contrasts with Calvinists views from multiple angles, Goodwin crystallizes the Arminian viewpoint on the extent of the atonement.

Along the way of accomplishing his mission of defending unlimited atonement, Goodwin gives the reader some real gems.Among my favorites were Goodwin's explanation of the will of God as well as his explanation on conditional election.

Goodwin's style is similar to most Puritans and as such Redemption Redeemed is a tough read. One could use Redemption Redeemed as a reference tool.There's a comprehensive index of scripture references in the back.But my advice would be to put the work in and reap the full reward!It's well worth it.

Product Description
John Goodwin (1594-1665) was one of the most prolific and controversial writers of the English Revolution; his career illustrates some of the most important intellectual developments of the seventeenth century. Educated at Queens' College, Cambridge, he became vicar of a flagship Puritan parish in the City of London. During the 1640s, he wrote in defence of the civil war, the army revolt, Pride's Purge, and the regicide, only to turn against Cromwell in 1657. Finally, repudiating religious uniformity, he became one of England's leading tolerationists. This richly contextualised study, the first modern intellectual biography of Goodwin, explores the whole range of writings produced by him and his critics. Amongst much else, it shows that far from being a maverick individualist, Goodwin enjoyed a wide readership, pastored one of London's largest Independent congregations and was well connected to various networks. Hated and admired by Anglicans, Presbyterians and Levellers, he provides us with a new perspective on contemporaries like Richard Baxter and John Milton. It will be of special interest to students of Puritanism, the English Revolution, and early modern intellectual history. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Goodwin needs to be better known
I am the editor of the book "Redemption Redeemed: A Puritan Defense of Unlimited Atonement" (2004), a compilation of excerpts from a larger book Goodwin wrote in 1650. I was thrilled to learn that a prominent historian was writing a biography of this major 17th Century English figure.
Goodwin was a very well-known and respected pastor-theologian and public figure who wrote about 60 books and pamphlets on many issues. Coffey does a great job of describing Goodwin's life and significance.

I have been used to studying Goodwin as a Puritan who was a former Calvinist turned prolific Arminian. He had many theological fans and opponents. But Goodwin wasinvolved in many controversial issues during his life including those that were political. He was like an English version of Sam Adams, writing in support of the English Civil War (supporting the Parliamentary forces against the King) and was a supporter of "tolerance" of various religious perspectives. The man was really ahead of his time.

Coffey writes: "during the middle decades of the seventeenth century, few had done so much to redefine the theology, ecclesiology and politics of English Protestantism."
In terms of public knowledge by Christians, Goodwin is probably about where the (now) famed English Calvinist theologian John Owen was in the 1950s. Owen (who lived during Goodwin's era) was largely unknown then. His books were subsequently republished and he gained more recognition.
The same needs to happen with Goodwin as an Arminian. I hope this biography and my edited work will contribute toward that end.
I deduct one star because of the very expensive price. I really think Coffey could have made a better choice of publisher. It amazes me as well that Boydell charges $105 per book and couldn't even be bothered including a dust jacket.

Product Description
Every day, the Abyss claims more Supernal knowledge, more lore is lost to the steady crumbling of history and to the mortality of the Awakened. There are those who claim that mages should be looking to the future, but how can they, when they have allowed so much of the past to be lost already? What good does new avenues of learning do if they cannot hold onto what is already known?
The Mysterium stands against that crumbling and preserves the lore of the scions of Atlantis. Whether they are dedicated scholars peering into long-forgetten secrets in dusty libraries or two-fisted adventurers looking for traces of the Supernal in mankind's archaeology, the Awakened owe the Mysterium much for the preservation of their lore.
An Order book for Mage: The Awakening
A comprehensive examination of the origins of the Mysterium, stretching back into the misty legends of Atlantis.
Details of how the Mysterium approaches its Supernal mandate to gather and preserve all knowledge, as well as the secrets of the Atlantean Mystery tradition at the core of the order.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid, but not the stuff of legend (well, technically it is, but...)
As a Mage player and die-hard Mysterium fanatic, I would recommend this book. It contains many practices and philosophies of the Mysterium that aren't mentioned at all in the Mage core (the Mysterium's central tenet is nothing in the two books).

Outside of it's usefulness to players wishing to play Mystagogues, or possibly for a Storyteller wanting a Mysterium basedplot-hook, the book has very few other uses. There are a handful of spells and new artifacts, but not enough alone to justify purchasing this book. I'd put it low on the priority list of useful Mage books.

Also, as a minor nitpicky point, this book is the most poorly proofread of the many White Wolf books I've purchased over the years, and the clarity of the writing makes some of the chapters puzzling at best.

So, if the book has limited usefulness, poor editing, and confusing content, why did I give it four stars? The White Wolf authors continue to amaze me with their sheer ingenuity. Every single book, I'm always blown away by another amazing idea that can create a dozen character concepts or spin a dozen plot hooks. This book doesn't reach the same heights as, say, Tome of the Mysteries, but I'm still quite fond of it.

Bottom line: Buy if you plan on including the Mysterium in depth in your chronicle, otherwise, there are more important Mage books to add to your library first.

5-0 out of 5 stars Scholars and Keepers of Secret lore for Mage
This splat book covers the scholarly mages of the Mage the Awakening rpg game. It also offers lots of background ideas for creating characters in the mold of Mysterium including an interesting Indiana Jones type of treasure hunter, mages who seek the lost treasures and artifacts of los Atlantis. Included are new rotes and spells and a very in-depth description of this order. A must for the Mage the Awakening fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars Mysterium is a good supplement for the setting
The book has a lot of interesting information in it, describing several things about the nature of the world from the perspective of the Mysterium. It's well-written, and has a lot of useful organizational descriptions and story hooks in it.

The game mechanics items were worth reading, and they did a good job of supporting the described notions of differing approaches between the Mysterium and the Free Council. (Especially look at the different mechanics they cover for skills and electronics.)

Some of the rotes should either be extremely common outside the Mysterium, however, or have an explanation given as to why not. That's the biggest flaw in the book I saw.(They have a rote for copying grimoires, for example. That's something that would proliferate unless it is somehow extremely difficult to develop.)

All in all, it's a good book for those playing Mage: the Awakening. Even if you deemphasize the orders in your, you may still find some value in it. The legacies and rotes give some new ideas as to mechanics for spells and systems. I simply wish they had explained a touch more about the rotes describing how they had been secured over the years. ... Read more

Product Description
The Reluctant Spy is the timely story of Calvin Evan, a smart, but flawed CIA agent, beginning with the 1979 Iranian revolution. Cal develops a critical Iranian operative and becomes embroiled in the audacious, yet little honored effort to liberate the American embassy hostages. Romantically, he's caught between his love for a rescued refugee and the aggressive intentions of his boss' manipulative daughter. Ensnaring him, the savvy daughter navigates his career away from the political fallout of the mission's failure and directs him to the battleground of the 1980's- the Nicaraguan Contra war where Cal runs an illegal funding operation. Morally conflicted and victimized by his erratic behavior, he slips into a burned out funk, posted to Switzerland. There, amidst the rise of Middle Eastern terrorism, his past pulls him into conflict with his former Iranian asset, possibly a double agent, and reunites him with his long ago betrayed love, now a death squad target. The Reluctant Spy is the tale of Cal's torment in trying to reconcile his heroic and destructive behaviors, his successes and failures, and his search for happiness and contentment. The backdrop of his struggles is the American foreign policy establishment's often futile efforts to influence and control global events while carrying on insidious bureaucratic warfare. John H. Goodwin is a 1981 graduate of Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, Magna Cum Laude. John used his experience living abroad and knowledge of foreign cultures and American political and military affairs history in writing The Reluctant Spy. John manages global investment portfolios for wealthy American and international families at Morgan Stanley's Private Wealth Management business. ... Read more

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "John Goodwin," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have John Goodwin in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with John Goodwin when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name John Goodwin, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process.

The Flaming Mountain - Rick and Scotty aid the Spindrift Foundation's mission to save an island from an active volcano.

Rick Brant is the central character in a series of 24 adventure and mystery novels by John Blaine, a pseudonym for authors Harold L. Goodwin (all titles) and Peter J. Harkins (co-author of the first three). The series was published by Grosset & Dunlap between 1947 and 1968, with the previously unpublished title, The Magic Talisman printed in 1990 in a limited edition as the concluding #24.[1]

In the series, teenaged Rick Brant and his ex-Marine pal, Don Scott [Scotty] live on Spindrift Island off the coast of New Jersey, where Rick's father, Hartson Brant, heads the Spindrift Foundation, a group of scientists. Rick and Scotty are involved in various adventures at home and abroad. Besides Hartson Brant, the recurring supporting characters in the series include:

* Barbara Brant (Barby), Rick's younger sister
* Chahda, a resourceful youth from India
* Janice Miller (Jan), daughter of Dr. Walter Miller, a Spindrift scientist, and Rick's girlfriend
* Dismal [Diz], the Brant family dog
* Steve Ames, an agent of "JANIG", the fictional Joint Army-Navy Intelligence Group

Various Spindrift scientists also appear several times:

* Physicist Hobart Zircon.
* Mathematician Julius Weiss
* Cyberneticist Parnell Winston
* Archaeologist Tony Briotti
* Rocket designer John Gordon

The Rick Brant series had a scientific tone (being bylined as "Electronic Adventures" or "Science-Adventure Stories" and finally "SCIENCE Adventures"). The science in the stories was realistic science, unlike the fantastic science of Tom Swift, Jr. ---From Wikipedia ... Read more

Product Description
John Wilson has created a compelling story based on the folk hero, Albert “Ginger” Goodwin, also known as “Red” Goodwin from the colour of his hair and his radical social ideas. Goodwin was originally a miner from the north of England, who came to Canada and took up the cause of the working man during the Trail smelter strike and at the coal mines on Vancouver Island.His ideas were eventually considered so dangerous that a special constable was hired to hunt him down in the forest near Cumberland. Wilson tells the story of a young boy, Will Ryan, sent out from England after his father was killed in WW I, to live with his uncle, a mine manager, at Cumberland.Through a chance meeting in the forest with Red Goodwin, young Will has all his ideas turned upside down, especially when he sees first-hand how the miners are treated in the community and at the pit face.He becomes friends with a Chinese boy who introduces him to the racism in Canada, where “Chinks” are seen as expendable.Will is also deeply smitten by a beautiful Scottish girl, the daughter of a miner, who is working to help Goodwin and others hiding out in the forests.Soon Will finds himself caught between the demands of his uncle, his loyalty to the memory of his father, and the new vision of Goodwin who argues that the European war between Britain and Germany has parallels with the war between the mine owners and the mine workers.In an exciting story, filled with sudden turns and tragic events, young Will discovers that he must make a choice, a choice that will change his life forever. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great history. Great read.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Texas political history. Knaggs has skillfully woven together the tales of many disparate campaigns and individuals in one enjoyable book. Much of the information in this book would be forgotten to history if Knaggs had not put it down on paper. As a press aide to Sen. Tower he had a bird's eye view of what he writes about.

5-0 out of 5 stars Two-Party Too Good
Two-Party Texas is a tremendous book that any political junkie or history buff will enjoy.John Knaggs put together a masterpiece as he transitioned from a news reporter to a political cunsultant during the time period which he writes about.

The book traces the political career of Senator John Tower of Texas from his first Senate campaign to the last campaign and the change of Texas political history in between.For those interested in how campaigns were run by the minority party in the 1960's before television and air conditioning, you'll find what you want here.The book details some great campaigns and even if you know the eventual outcomes of those elections, the story build-up is incredible.

Give Two-Party Texas a try, you'll enjoy it.Maybe you'll even appreciate it as I do. ... Read more
