In his discussion on the development of theological prolegomena in the early Reformation, Richard Muller makes the following four conclusions:
- Early Protestant reflection upon theological prolegomena did not completely establish a uniform method for organizing a theological system.
- Early Protestant reflection upon theological prolegomena does anticipate later developments by the Reformed orthodox.
- Early Protestant reflection upon theological prolegomena provides ‘a useful gauge’ of the development of Reformed orthodoxy and its continuity with the Reformation.
- The greatest contribution of the early Reformation to theological prolegomena was its reflection upon the problem of knowledge of God and human finitude and sin.
