"Considered by many to be the greatest book by enormously influential American preacher and theologian JONATHAN EDWARDS (17031758), this provocative 1754 work explores the necessity of Gods grace for the salvaging of the damaged will of humanity and argues that free will is an extension of and connected to the grace of God. What is the nature of morality? Can God be evil? What constitutes sin? How does Gods foreknowledge of all events impact concepts of morality? How does intent inform our acts of vice and virtue? Still controversial and hotly debated in the 21st century, this demanding evangelistic worksome call it the best argument for the sovereignty of Godis among the essential reading of the thinker whose philosophies inspired the 18th-century religious of the Great Awakening, which continues to hugely influence American Protestantism to this day. Freedom of the Will will enthrall and challenge serious readers of the Bible as well as students of theologys impact on American history. "
