Jonathan Edwards wrote Freedom of the Will in 1754 while serving in Massachusetts as a missionary to a native tribe of Indians. In this work, he investigates the contrasting Calvinist and Arminian views about free will, God's foreknowledge, determinism, and moral agency. He strives to resolve the disagreement surrounding these topics, using a variety of resources including the Bible and philosophy works of enlightenment thinkers. Freedom of the Will is relevant to every Christian because it addresses a number of difficult questions about desire, good, evil, and freedom of choice.
