On Grace And Free Will

Book cover
By: (354-430)

In "On Grace and Free Will," Saint Augustine of Hippo explores the complex relationship between God's grace and human free will. Through a series of deep and thought-provoking arguments, Augustine delves into the nature of sin, redemption, and the role of divine intervention in human affairs.

The book presents a compelling case for the importance of grace in the salvation of mankind, while also acknowledging the crucial role that free will plays in shaping our moral decisions. Augustine's theological insights are both profound and nuanced, challenging readers to consider the ways in which God's grace and human agency intersect in our lives.

Overall, "On Grace and Free Will" is a rich and inspiring work that will appeal to those interested in the intersections between religion, philosophy, and ethics. Augustine's eloquent prose and deep theological insights make this book a valuable addition to any library.

Book Description:
There are some persons who suppose that the freedom of the will is denied whenever God's grace is maintained, and who on their side defend their liberty of will so peremptorily as to deny the grace of God. This grace, as they assert, is bestowed according to our own merits. It is in consequence of their opinions that I wrote the book entitled On Grace and Free Will. This work I addressed to the monks of Adrumetum, in whose monastry first arose the controversy on that subject, and that in such a manner that some of them were obliged to consult me thereon. The work begins with these words: "With reference to those persons who so preach the liberty of the human will."
