Overview

During Witsius’ lifetime, doctrinal disputes raged across Europe. Such questions as whether Christians were under Mosaic law, the role of grace for the believer, and the idea of moral law came to the fore, causing division and strife in the church. In Conciliatory or Irenical Animadversions on the Controversies Agitated in Britain, Witsius addresses these doctrinal concerns, expounding on the inherent nature of law, grace, and the role of the believer. He takes a close look at sin, justification through Christ, redemption, and the covenant of grace, discussing in depth, the nature of holiness, which, he declared, was the ultimate goal of grace and the gospel.
