  2. Jesse Couenhoven (2013). The Possibilities of Forgiveness. Journal of Religious Ethics 41 (3):377-381.
    Perhaps the best way to challenge anodyne popular conceptions of forgiveness is to highlight the ways in which “forgiveness,” like “justice” and “freedom,” is a rich and deeply contested term that relies for its content on divergent convictions about who we are and who we should seek to be. The essays in this focus issue articulate some of the many possibilities for practicing and thinking about forgiveness.

  5. Jesse Couenhoven (2010). Against Metaethical Imperialism: Several Arguments for Equal Partnerships Between the Deontic and Aretaic. Journal of Religious Ethics 38 (3):521-544.
    Virtue and deontological ethics are now commonly contrasted as rival approaches to moral inquiry. However, I argue that neither metaethical party should seek complete, solitary domination of the ethical domain. Reductive treatments of the right or the virtuous, as well as projects that abandon the former or latter, are bound to leave us with a sadly diminished map of the moral territories crucial to our lives. Thus, it is better for the two parties to seek a more cordial and equal (...)

  7. Jesse Couenhoven (2007). Augustine's Rejection of the Free-Will Defence: An Overview of the Late Augustine's Theodicy. Religious Studies 43 (3):279-298.
    Augustine is commonly considered the greatest early proponent of what we call the free-will defence, but this idea is deeply misleading, as Augustine grew increasingly dissatisfied with the view from an early point in his career, and his later explorations of the implications of his doctrines of sin and grace led him to reject free-will theodicies altogether. As a compatibilist, however, he continued to reject the idea that God is responsible for the advent of evil. His alternative was his often (...)

  9. Jesse Couenhoven (2002). Law and Gospel, or the Law of the Gospel? Karl Barth's Political Theology Compared with Luther and Calvin. Journal of Religious Ethics 30 (2):181 - 205.
    This essay is an attempt to understand the significance of Barth's redefinition of the "law/gospel" rubric for political theology. Barth's thought is exposited at length, and illumined by comparison with Luther and Calvin. Luther emphasizes the distance between gospel and the law, distinguishing between serving God in the secular regiment, and serving Christ in the spiritual regiment. He thereby challenges the improper relation of state and church, but does so in a manner that can lead to a passive dualism. Calvin (...)

  10. Jesse Couenhoven (2000). Grace as Pardon and Power: Pictures of the Christian Life in Luther, Calvin, and Barth. Journal of Religious Ethics 28 (1):63 - 88.
    Christians have long understood grace both as a declaration of acceptance and as a power that transforms. This article illumines two theses while investigating the relationship between these understandings of grace in Luther, Calvin, and Barth's development of the law/gospel dialectic and the doctrines of justification and sanctification. First, though each theologian makes use of both understandings of grace, each also tends to emphasize one over the other. The unity and tension within and between these perspectives help to show that (...)
