    an excellent debate on what in fact augstine taught on the subject

    the bondage and liberation of the will is one of john calvin's most important yet forgotten works...this debate is a little more intellectual and nuanced then luther's battle with erasmus...this is a must read because it showed conclusively that st. augustine taught that free will was enslaved to libertas--liberty and was one more nail in the reformation slogan of sola fide
