Although the problem of the free-will has been a well-known battleground for philosophers, the problem has significant theological implications too. But attempts to address the problem of the free-will from both the theological and philosophical perspectives are not all that common. Covering the psychological and philosophical conditions for free will, dealing also with compatibilism and chance as well as the historical background of predestination and other theological problems from the Biblical and Patristic periods through the Scholastics and Reformation into the twentieth century, John Cowburn offers a unique and detailed defense of free will against determinism while at the same time responding to practical questions on making decisions, the influence of emotion, and moral theological concerns.
