Divine Will and Human Choice: Freedom, Contingency, and Necessity in Early Modern Reformed Thought

Richard Muller

$55.00

Hardback
:This fresh study from an internationally respected scholar of the Reformation era shows how the Reformers held in creative tension the concepts of divine sovereignty and human freedom. Richard Muller argues that traditional Reformed theology supported a robust theory of an omnipotent divine will and human free choice and drew on a tradition of Western theological and philosophical discussion. The book provides historical perspective on a topic of current interest and debate and offers a corrective to recent discussions.
