    Tyndale once says that he refrains from expounding a textual gloss for tediousness one wishes that both Luther and Erasmus might have learned a lesson from the man, not primarily in their scripture interpretation, but in their controversial style Line by line answering of the other party gets to be pretty old pretty quickly, especially when one of the respondents is as prolix and sticks to the point as little as Martin Luther This text skips whole sections, which are both important and enjo Tyndale once says that he refrains from expounding a textual gloss for tediousness one wishes that both Luther and Erasmus might have learned a lesson from the man, not primarily in their scripture interpretation, but in their controversial style Line by line answering of the other party gets to be pretty old pretty quickly, especially when one of the respondents is as prolix and sticks to the point as little as Martin Luther This text skips whole sections, which are both important and enjoyable, of Erasmus s original Discussion, which is a defense of free will and then Luther...

    Update I re read skimmed this for my students, and the debates meant a lotto me, this time around.Luther s rhetoric, though still as entertaining as ever, had its tragic side, especially when looking at Erasmus initial forray, which was perfectly reasonable, though wrong I do strongly agree with what Luther says, especially in the light of the New Perspective on Paul the arguments have not substantially changed There are some truly beautiful parts in Luther s little polemic.Review This Update I re read skimmed this for my students, and the debates meant a lotto me, this time around.Luther s rhetoric, though still as entertaining as ever, had its tragic side, especially when looking at Erasmus initial forray, which was perfectly reasonable, though wrong I do strongly agree with what Luther says, especially in the light of the New Perspective on Paul the arguments have not substantially changed There are some truly beautiful parts in Luther s little polemic.Review This debate is one of the best in history and it took place between two distinct historical personalities Desiderius Erasmus, Catholic satirist and Martin Luther, Protestant leader.Both debaters have distinct styles Erasmus is cool and pointed, Luther impassioned and enraged Not only are they an enthralling debate to watch, they also state both sides of the free will predestination debate at their strongest points.As a gri...

    Luther admitted he thought this was his best work and I am inclined to agree In this response to Erasmus of Rotterdam he presents a compelling case for the exhaustive sovereignty of God over all of creation and particularly in electing and predestining those whom he saves, he also shows how this does not conflict with the idea that man is held responsible for his sin, addressing the same question Paul does in Romans 9, How can God still blame us, if n...

    A conveniently paired publication I ship Team Erasmus real hard, so I would give his work a four and Luther s snotty rebuttal a two Erasmus, working in a Catholic tradition despite his critiques of many church practices of his own day, produces a sincere attempt to synthesize a bible full of varying accounts of free will or the absence thereof My distaste for Luther s response stems less from the theology itself though I confess ...

    Fanstastically interesting, and one of the most important controveries in church history, to say nothing of being personally impactful that is, if you believe in an all powerful God, where does that belief leave your power of making decisions in simple terms, is there room for both you and God in a logically sound universe Even , if possible, than the actual subject matter assuming that most adults have thought through the issue a little bit in the past , the disputants themselves are Fanstastically interesting, and one of the most important controveries in church history, to say nothing of being personally impactful that is, if you believe in an all powerful God, where does that belief leave your power of making decisions in simple terms, is there room for both you and God in a logically sound universe Even , if possible, than the actual subject matter assuming that most adults have thought through the issue a little bit in the past , the disputants themselves are interesting one would have liked to be able to see both Luther and Erasmus in action, as it we...

    This is a great edition to have the two essential texts on the question of free choice in one and the same volume with a good introduction Even though Luther points out that he is no learned man in comparison to Erasmus it is obvious that both are well read and are making a huge amount of references to both classical and patristic literature and thinkers and then the Bible of course It seems to me that in terms of biblical interpretation Luther might have the stronger case her, but I am not su This is a great edition to have the two essential texts on the question of free choice in one and the same volume with a good introduction Even though Luther points out that he is no learned man in ...

    Free will is definitely an interesting topic, but Luther s poor writing structure makes this a tough read to get through, and it s not his fault This book feels slightly out of context since it is a collection of written refutes from two different author...
