About This Book
In the first volume of Sin, Grace and Free Will, Matthew Knell embarked on a journey through centuries of Christian thought, from the Apostolic Fathers to St Augustine of Hippo. In this second volume, a new journey begins with Anselm of Canterbury and leads to the Council of Trent. While the themes of sin, grace and free will are familiar to any Christian, Knell provides a comprehensive overview of the thought on such matters of crucial Christian thinkers and reformers. In doing so, the second volume explores not only the Catholic way of dealing with these central topics, but also Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, and John Calvin's views and different approaches. An indispensable primer for any beginning scholar, Sin, Grace and Free Will presents the writings of Christian thinkers in their own contexts, and examines the progress of church doctrine.
