Product Description

This new volume in the emerging Lutheran Quarterly Books series explores one of Christian theology's most important yet controversial topics--human free will. Gerhard O. Forde, one of this generation's leading Christian thinkers, gets at the heart of the topic by looking anew at the famous debate on free will between Luther and Erasmus. Following an introduction by James Nestingen that sets the historical context, Forde thoroughly explores Luther's treatise On the Bondage of the Will and the debate between Erasmus and Luther that this treatise reflected. In the process of mediating this debate, Forde highlights the central arguments involved in thinking about human free will, and he proposes a satisfying resolution. The book also contains ten sermons by Forde that elegantly communicate the justice of God and relate theological inquiry to everyday life.

Publisher's Description

The Captivation of the Will provocatively revisits a perennial topic of controversy - human free will. Highly esteemed Lutheran thinker Gerhard O. Forde cuts to the heart of the subject by reexamining the famous debate on the will between Luther and Erasmus. Following a substantial introduction by James A. Nestingen that brings to life the historical background of the debate, Forde thoroughly explores Luther's Bondage of the Will and the dispute between Erasmus and Luther that it reflects. In the process of exposing this debate's enduring significance for Christians, Forde highlights its central arguments about Scripture, God, the will, and salvation in Christ. Luther recognized that the only solution for humans bound by sin is the forgiveness that comes from Christ alone. Convinced that this insight represents the heart of the Christian gospel, Forde concludes with ten sermons that proclaim the message of salvation through Christ alone while elegantly relating theological inquiry to everyday life.

    M. Luther is man who really treat God as God, and He is sovereign. The freewill of a fallen man is irresistible and it is an addiction. Therefore he is in bondage of it.
