This book effectively instructed me of the various beliefs on the topic of predestination and free will. Its strength is its format. With four different contributors it is not subject to a bias representation of one viewpoint or another. It also allows for the other contributors to write responses to each of their counterpart's essays. The language of the book is somewhat technical and is recommended for those who are familiar with the subject or are ready for some critical reading. This book has affected my personal view while giving helpful insight into the four major viewpoints on predestination and free will.
