Description

The contributors to Grace for Grace focus on the debates on grace and free will inspired by Augustine's later teachings on grace ad the various reactions to it. Based on fresh study of a wealth of primary sources, this international team of scholars explores the intra-Church debates over grace and free will after Augustinje and Pelagius. In both popular and scholarly literature, the conflict has been traditionally referred to as the "Semi-Pelagian Controversy." For several decades, however, scholars have been distancing themselves from that simplistic and inaccurate portrayal. This book intends to solidify a disparate movement of scholarly thought and provide a secure basis for renewal study of the persons, texts, and events of a critical period in the reception of Augustine in the Early Middle Ages.

Brian J. Matz, is an editor of this volume. He is also author of the chapter titled: "Augustine, the Carolingians, and Double Predestination."
