This book makes a major contribution to historical scholarship on freedom and to contemporary debates over free choice, determinism, and divine middle knowledge. In recent debates on these subjects, Protestant and evangelical philosophers and theologians have argued about modern issues, but they have often misunderstood and dismissed the past-specifically, older Calvinism. This volume shows the philosophical sophistication of the older Calvinist or Reformed position, particularly its positive assessment of the issue of human free choice. The contributors demonstrate that traditional Calvinism cannot be easily dismissed as a form of philosophical determinism.
Reformed Thought on Freedom will be valued by Reformation scholars; professors and students in Reformation, Reformed theology, and historical theology courses; and research and theological libraries.
