Comments On Grace & Free Choice/de Gratia Et Libero Arbitrio

  • Dwight Davis

    It's hard to rate this. I enjoyed bits of it, but I then I disagreed with him on freedom of choice. I also had to read this in one sitting, which is a bad idea. So I may enjoy it more when I spend some more time with it.

    This work was Bernard of Clairvaux's attempt to tackle the issue of free choice and how that interacts with the existence of God, particularly one who is all powerful and all knowing.

  • Michael Hastings

    Bernard's analysis of free choice may not be widely accepted today. It may not even be absolutely incontrovertibly right. However it does for the most part ring true with the content of scripture in a profoundly simple way. His invention of the three types of freedom is genius.

  • Dylan Perry

    Despite the occasional spelling or punctuation error, Clairvaux added an interesting perspective on the types of free will a person may of may not have.
