A Reformed asceticism

Main Article Content

Jason Radcliff


Jason Radcliff argues for the possibility of a Reformed asceticism, not as a condition of salvation, but as a form of life. He provides evidence from the Bible, particularly the thought of the apostle Paul, as well as from the work of Athanasius and the Scottish theologians T. F. Torrance and Henry Scougal. He argues that asceticism has much to offer the contemporary ecclesiastical situation and deserves to be recovered by the Reformed community.
