This may upset some hard-line Calvinists, but hurt is good sometimes for the soul.
My previous post on the Evangelical divide was based on a text written by Arminian theologian Roger Olson.
In case some people doubt such a divide really exists, I add here part of an article on this topic published in First Things by the Reformed theologian Gerald McDermott, the Jordan-Trexler Professor of Religion at Roanoke College and Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion, editor of The Oxford Handbook of Evangelical Theology and coauthor of The Theology of Jonathan Edwards (Oxford).
I add here, as a teaser, the first part of this longer text (bold emphases are mine).
