Ideas about human agency have been vitally important to Christian theology since its inception. Taking into account recent concerns in philosophy, this collection of thoughtful essays re-examines the notion of human agency from the perspective of the major traditions of Christian belief. In particular, the contributors explore the various ideas surrounding human agency as they relate to notions about divine sovereignty, free will, and evil. Comprehensive in scope and stimulating in subject matter, this volume will be of value to philosophers as well as scholars of religion.
