A clear understanding of predestination Apr 25, 2000
In his book Peter Aureol on Predestination: A Challenge to Late Medieval Thought, the eighty-third volume of the Studies in the History of Christian Thought, Dr. James Halverson shows the impact of Peter Aureol's break with the traditional view of Predestination which was "God predestined (or saves) man without regard to human causes, but reprobates (damns) with regard to sin." This book is well written but not for the faint of heart. Extensively footnote with many of the footnotes in Medieval Latin, this work examines the theology of Peter Aureol, William Ockham, Gregory of Rimini and other. Showing how most of the works produced on predestination during the later parts of Medieval Europe where in support of or a reaction against Aureol's writings. Dr. Halverson in his classification and naming of the three main branches of Medieval Predestination theology (General Election, Single-Particular Election and Double-Particular Election) defines and gives clarity to a topic which is inherently chaotic. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the development of the doctrines concerning predestination.
