On Grace and Free Will
amazon.co.uk
Written in the 5th century AD, On Grace and Free Will is Saint Augustine short treatise on the matter of the grace of God and its correlation to the free will of man. At the heart of the work is the argument that it is not the knowledge of righteousness in our actions that bestows upon man the grace of God, and thus eternal life through Gods salvation, but rather it is the grace of God which allows us to do good in the exercise of our free will.  read more

On Grace and Free Will
amazon.co.uk
The Christian Church has no shortage of revered figures and saints, but it is difficult to find one that had a more decisive impact on the course of the Churchs history than Augustine of Hippo. Augustine was a bishop of Hippo Regius in Africa, but his works, sermons and writings helped hold the Church together even as the Western Roman Empire was in its death throes, to the extent that every major branch of Christianity recognizes him today. The Catholic Church has venerated him as a saint and a Doctor of the Church, Orthodox Christians also consider him a saint, and Protestants and Calvinists cite him as one of the fathers and inspirations of the Protestant Reformation. In many respects, Augustine has provided the theological bedrock for Christians for nearly 1600 years, and as theologian John Leith noted in 1990, Augustine, the North African of Berber descent, is today the spiritual father of multitudes who are remote indeed from him racially, politically, and culturally. Augustines voluminous writings also had the effect of making him one of antiquitys most influential philosophers. Though he will always be remembered within the context of Christianity, Augustine studied the works of Virgil, Cicero, and the ancient Greek philosophers, providing a critical bridge between religious and secular philosophy that would in turn inspire St. Thomas Aquinas and similar thinkers. In addition to framing the concept of original sin, it was Augustine who first wrote at length on the theory of just war. Paul Henry, S.J. noted, In the history of thought and civilization, Saint Augustine appears to me to be the first thinker who brought into prominence and undertook an analysis of the philosophical and psychological concepts of person and personality. These ideas, so vital to contemporary man, shape not only Augustines own doctrine on God but also his philosophy of manOn Grace and Free Will, Augustines doctrine about the liberum arbitrium or free will and its inability to respond to the will of God without divine grace, is interpreted (mistakenely according to Roman Catholics) in terms of Predestination: grace is irresistible, results in conversion, and leads to perseverance.  read more

On Grace and Free Will
amazon.co.uk
"Because of what is said by the Lord Jesus: Without me you can do nothing."On Grace and Free Will is brief treatise on this topic. Throughout Church history this has been a topic of much debatesince doctrine on this topic attempts to understand divine and human causality.Like many treatises written in the Early Church, the occasion of this text is due to recent events that required Augustine's intervention. There had been "dissensions" among some which sought to "defend free will" to the expense of God's sovereign will. On the other hand, some so focussed on God's grace, that they diminished human will.Augustine, here, intervenes to correct the skewed theology in the churches, addressing both sides of the argument. In this treatise, is a rare, summary presentation of Western theology's brightest mind on the subject of causality.This electronic edition features an active table of contents.On Grace and Free Will is part of The Fig Classic Series on Early Church Theology.

On Grace and Free Will
amazon.co.uk
Augustine, the man with upturned eye, with pen in the left hand, and a burning heart in the right (as he is usually represented), is a philosophical and theological genius of the first order, towering like a pyramid above his age, and looking down commandingly upon succeeding centuries. He had a mind uncommonly fertile and deep, bold and soaring; and with it, what is better, a heart full of Christian love and humility. He stands of right by the side of the greatest philosophers of antiquity and of modern times. We meet him alike on the broad highways and the narrow footpaths, on the giddy Alpine heights and in the awful depths of speculation, wherever philosophical thinkers before him or after him have trod. As a theologian he is facile princeps, at least surpassed by no church father, schoolman, or reformer. With royal munificence he scattered ideas in passing, which have set in mighty motion other lands and later times. He combined the creative power of Tertullian with the churchly spirit of Cyprian, the speculative intellect of the Greek church with the practical tact of the Latin. He was a Christian philosopher and a philosophical theologian to the full.  read more

Confessions & On Grace and Free Will
amazon.co.uk
Saint Augustine lived between 354 and 430AD--some of the most turbulent times for the Roman Empire. Augustine's life matched this turbulence for despite his early rejection of Christianity he eventually became a bishop and one of the most influential theologians and thinkers in church history. In the Confessions, Augustine tells his own story of his path from a Hedonistic and profligate lifestyle to the acceptance of Christianity and is one of the most profound, personal and honest autobiographies of all time. The last books of the Confessions and On Grace and Free Will place Augustine's own spiritual journey in the wider context of his own theology as he poses answers to perennial philosophical questions such as the nature of time and whether humans are ultimately responsible for their salvation.  read more

Augustine's Writings on Grace and Free WIll

This eBook comes complete with an active linked Table of Contents, making navigation quicker and easier.B. B. Warfield said, "Augustine [was one of the early founders] of Roman Catholicism and the author of that doctrine of grace which it has been the constantly pursued effort of Roman Catholicism to neutralize, and which in very fact either must be neutralized by, or will neutralize, Roman Catholicism. Two children were struggling in the womb of his mind. There can be no doubt which was the child of his heart. His doctrine of the Church he had received whole from his predecessors, and he gave it merely the precision and vitality which insured its persistence. His doctrine of grace was all his own: it represented the very core of his being . . . it was inevitable, had time been allowed, that his inherited doctrine of the Church, too, with all its implications, would have gone down before it, and Augustine would have bequeathed to the Church, not "problems," but a thoroughly worked out system of evangelical religion. . . . The problem which Augustine bequeathed to the Church for solution, the Church required a thousand years to solve. But even so, it is Augustine who gave us the Reformation. For the Reformation, inwardly considered, was just the ultimate triumph of Augustine's doctrine of grace over Augustine's doctrine of the Church."

Concerning Grace and Free Will (Illustrated)
amazon.co.uk
A Classic Includes Active Table of Contents Includes Religious IllustrationsThe treatise of St. Bernard De Gratia et Libero Arbitrio was written at some time shortly previous to the year 1128, and therefore before the author had attained his thirty-eighth year. St. Bernard, in a letter addressed to Hincmar, Chancellor of the Holy See, which the Benedictine editor dates as circ. an. mcxxviii, refers to the fact that Geoffrey, Bishop of Chartres, had asked him to send Hincmar some of his opuscula; he had at the time, so he thought, nothing at hand worthy of Hincmars attention, but he adds: Libellum tamen De Gratia et Libero Arbitrio nuper edidi; illum uobis libenter mittam, cum uos uelle cognouero (St. Bern. Epist. LII).Aeterna Press  read more

The Lord Will Give Grace and Glory
amazon.co.uk
This year's BYU Women's Conference theme comes from the Psalmist: "For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly" (Psalm 84:11). This comprehensive promise gives us great hope; hope that the Lord will not just light out path, but defend us against any difficulties we might encounter; hope that we will not just receive graceforgiveness for our sins as a free gift from our Saviorbut glory as well: "no good thing" withheld from "them that walk uprightly." In The Lord Will Give Grace and Glory: Talk from the 2014 BYU Women's Conference, you will find eighteen addresses that will also give you that hope of the Lord's help, His grace and glory, in your life."The Savior's divine empathy is perfect, so He knows how to help us. He rarely moves the mountains in front of us, but He always helps us climb them." Sheri Dew"Grace is basically every contact we have with the Lord in which He enables us to change. This is what King Benjamin's people experienced when they cried, 'The Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent ... has wrought a mighty change in us' (Mosiah 5:2). This is what Alma experience....This is what King Lamoni's father experienced...These are all manifestations of how grace changed people."Amy H. White and Brad Wilcox"There is a Celtic expression, 'thin places.' A thin place is where the veil that separates heaven and earth is nearly transparent. It is a place where we experience a deep sense of God's presence in our everyday world. A thin place is where, for a moment, the spiritual world and the natural world intersect."&Virginia H. Pearce"Think of this! The only perfect man who has ever lived on the earth, the Creator of the universe, the literal Son of God, a member of the Godhead, was willing to do all of this for uswe who are imperfect, weak, and unworthy. He loved us enough to suffer all of thatfor you and for me. To me it is beyond comprehension."Bonnie L. Oscarson"It seems to be part of your special nature to feel that, no matter how hard you work and what you do, it is never enough. Sometimes, despite the fact that everyone else feels you have been spectacular, you may feel inadequate and ineffective. Yet the excellent work you do, the kindness you show, and the love you exhibit are blessings beyond measure to those who have the privilege of associating with you. And it is enough!Elder Quentin L. CookThe power and blessing of divine grace is discussed in chapters from presenters such as Elder Quentin L. Cook and wife Mary G. Cook, Elder Bruce C. Hafen and wife Marie Hafen, Relief Society general president Linda K. Burton, Young Women general president Bonnie L. Oscarson, Primary general president Rosemary M. Wixom, Virginia H.
