The Reformation Heritage
Both Owen and Wesley regarded themselves as champions of Reformed Anglicanism, but they interpreted Anglican doctrine differently. Whereas Owen declared, ‘the Church of England is in her doctrine express as unto the imputation of the righteousness of Christ, both active and passive, as it is usually distinguished’, Wesley emphatically denied the view of James Hervey and others that ‘imputed righteousness’ is spoken of in the Prayer Book, Articles, and Homilies. This chapter argues that this important difference serves to indicate that the Calvinist—Arminian controversy involved the doctrines of the atonement and justification, just as surely as the two subjects are themselves intimately bound together.
