Summary

What is the role of the will in believing the good news of the gospel? Why is there so much controversy over free will throughout church history? R.C. Sproul finds that Christians have often been influenced by pagan views of the human will that deny the effects of Adam’s fall.

In Willing to Believe, Sproul traces the free-will controversy from its formal beginning in the fifth century, with the writings of Augustine and Pelagius, to the present. Readers will gain understanding into the nuances separating the views of Protestants and Catholics, Calvinists and Arminians, and Reformed and Dispensationalists. This book, like Sproul’s Faith Alone, is a major work on an essential evangelical tenet.

I love this book! This is a book you read over and over again. (I'm on my 4th) Willing to Believe is an excellent resource for deeper personal study on this topic. RC goes back into history and reveals how this doctrine was contversial in the early church days, as it is still today. He explains in detail the differences from Peliagius & Augustine. The works of Luther, Calvin & Edwards. This book is not for the mushy reader, it is deep with theogical concepts that are vital to our spiritual health. It makes you think and ponder about the greatness of our God, leaving you with a great sense of security of God Sovereinty and how it relates to man. It is theolgoy in its finest in 204 pages! It will leave you as it has for me, craving for more! Thank you Dr. Rc for you deep committment and challenge to all of us to pursue our understanding of what God has said and what He expects from us all.
