'"A Hair’s Breadth Difference?" Wesley and Whitefield in Dialogue. A Comparative Analysis of John Wesley and George Whitefield’s Doctrine of Election and Justification, 1739-1770' (NTC).
Joel began work on his doctoral thesis in January 2013. Joel's thesis will examine John Wesley and George Whitefield’s conflict over predestination generally and the Free Grace controversy of 1739-1743 in particular. The thesis seeks to understand the roots of the doctrinal dispute as well as the nature of the reconciliation that was achieved. Joel is currently an instructor in Theology and Biblical Studies at Nipawin Bible College, in Saskatchewan, Canada.
