Anselm on Freedom by Katherin A. Rogers

Book Description

Can human beings be free and responsible if there is a God? Anselm of Canterbury, the first Christian philosopher to propose that human beings have a really robust free will, offers viable answers to questions which have plagued religious people for at least two thousand years: If divine grace cannot be merited and is necessary to save fallen humanity, how can there be any decisive role for individual free choice to play? If God knows today what you are going to choose tomorrow, then when tomorrow comes you have to choose what God foreknew, so how can your choice be free? If human beings must have the option to choose between good and evil in order to be morally responsible, must God be able to choose evil? Anselm answers these questions with a sophisticated theory of free will which defends both human freedom and the sovereignty and goodness of God.

Freedom and Self-Creation by Katherin A. Rogers Freedom and Self-Creation, Hardback (October 2015)

Katherin A. Rogers presents a theory of free will based on the thought of Anselm of Canterbury. She defends and develops Anselm's original theory by addressing a series of problems levelled against libertarianism, and argues that Anselmian Libertarianism is a new and plausible approach in the on-going debate over human freedom and responsibility.

Perfect Being Theology by Katherin A. Rogers Perfect Being Theology, Paperback (June 2000)

Katherin A. Rogers defends the traditional approach, considering contemporary criticisms but concluding that the most adequate account of the nature of God should build upon the foundation laid by the Medieval philosophers.
