Edited by A. N. S. Lane; translated by G. I. Davies. An English translation of Calvin's most complete treatise of the relation between grace and free will.
"This first English translation of an important work of John Calvin is a welcome supplement to his teachings in his Institutes." -E. Earle Ellis, Southwestern Journal of Theology
This volume provides Calvin's fullest treatment of the relationship between the grace of God and the free will of humans. It offers insight into Calvin's interpretations of the church fathers, especially Augustine, on the topics of grace and free will and contains Calvin's answer to Pighius's objection that preaching is unnecessary if salvation is by grace alone. This important work, edited by renowned scholar A. N. S. Lane, contains material not found elsewhere in Calvin's writings and will be required reading for students of Calvin and the Protestant Reformation.
A. N. S. Lane is director of post-graduate research at London Bible College. He specializes in Christian doctrine and is the author of a number of books, including John Calvin: Student of the Church Fathers.
