Keith D. Stanglin, Ph.D. (2006) in Historical Theology, Calvin Theological Seminary, is Assistant Professor of Historical Theology at Harding University. He has published articles in Trinity Journal, Westminster Theological Journal, and Journal of Religious Ethics.
All those interested in historical theology and early modern history, as well as those interested in the past, present, and future of Reformed and Arminian theology.
"Stanglin is descriptive without overtly desiring to adjudge orthodoxy, displaying an expert and precise ability to define complex scholastic forms of argument customary in academic discourse. [...] Stanglin writes well and his topic is worthy. His book should be used in Reformation studies in general and in courses that examine the developments of seventeenth-century Reformed theology in particular."
Jeremy J. Bangs, Leiden American Pilgrim Museum, Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture, Vol. 77, No. 4 (December 2008).
“Stanglin’s study is crisp, sympathetic, close to the primary texts and highly convincing.”
Stephen Hampton, Peterhouse, Cambridge. In: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 59, No. 4 (2008).
“This well-focused study … is a highly useful contribution to our understanding of the history of Reformed scholasticism.”
Arnoud Visser, Utrecht University. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 61, No. 1 (Spring 2008).

Linda Gottschalk-Stuckrath, Leiden. In: Church History and Religious Culture, Vol. 87, No. 3 (2007).

Douglas A. Sweeney Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. In: Trinity Journal.
