    Description

    Freedom of the Will is a deeply affecting Christian text that serves as a philosophical guide to the free will of people, their moral agency, and our accountability to God.

    Jonathan Edwards was a Protestant theologian and a leading revivalist preacher during the Great Awakening. Edwards wrote Freedom of the Will in the 18th century while working as a missionary to a tribe of Housatonic Native Americans in Massachusetts. He carefully drew out the differences of thought between the Calvinist and Arminian theologies and sided with the Calvinist views on humanity's will. Edwards sought to understand God's foreknowledge and how it related to free will and the ability to choose between good and evil. Ultimately, he concluded that to find salvation we must accept God's grace and trust in what is good, which God has foreordained, and use our free will to seek it out in all our choices.

    This book is missing the last 3 sections of part 4

    Great theological work but the audio version is missing the last 3 sections of part 4 and the conclusion.

    Loved it!

    Theology matters. That's why my library is full of books like this one, Freedom of the Will. This book is for the Christian who wants to go deeper in understanding theology, and how we sometimes come to different conclusions, while still believing in the essentials. Because we are fallen, there are divisions and disagreements within Christ's Body as how to interpret the Word. I believe that Jonathan Edwards rightly handled the Scriptures, and did take the time to address different interpretations,such as Arminian theology vs Reformed theology.

    Bob Souer once again, does what he does best. The accomplished and very talented narrator did not disappoint. His crisp, clear and thoughtful delivery was so nice to listen to, and made the book all the more enjoyable.

    Five stars for this one!

    Overwhelming at times - not to the author's fault

    Edwards was a brilliant man, with a vocabulary far surpassing the limitations of my own! haha This book was a bit over my head at times, I admit, but still I enjoyed it and was able to follow it more often than not!

    Tough to review

    If the review seems schizophrenic, it is because it’s very difficult to assign x number of stars to this audiobook. Jonathan Edwards was a brilliant thinker and Freedom of the Will is a masterful work...5 stars for profound thinking. Unfortunately, the 18th century academic style of writing makes getting through this classic work like swimming through quicksand. 2 stars for the difficulty of hanging on to his stream of thought in the midst of convoluted writing. I think the reader does a very good job (4 stars) communicating some very complicated sentence structure and vocabulary. However, because this material is so dense, the reading would have been better absorbed if he read it a little more slowly. I tried slowing it down to .75, but that made the reader sound drunk or distorted. In an attempt to be thorough, the material was tedious in many places. Nevertheless, there are gems to be found if one has the patience and perseverance to mine them.

    Missing 7 chapters! (Part 4, Sec 8-13, Conclusion)

    Great book, hard to understand, missing the whole last part--compare to the Kindle edition or whatever. Missing Part 4 sections 8-13 and the last chapter titled "The Conclusion." Don't buy this in Audible until they fix it. As to content, I am glad to read of the limitlessness of God. It ought not to be our desire to be limitless in will, because that was the first lie of Satan. Edwards explains the limits and abilities of the human will with much precision and depth.

    Kevin Hughes review of Freedome of the Will

    This is an excellent book. the Lord surely blessed Edwards' pen. the book begins with a lengthy section defining terms. This may seem tedious but actually is extremely helpful because in the end the force of Edwards' arguments cannot be escaped by even the most shrewd of all Arminians.

    The book expressly reveals the foolishness of a doctrine of "free will" and makes very clear that atheism, Arminian thought, and essentially any other folly is inescapably just that, folly and absurdity of the highest degree.
