St Augustine on Grace and Free will

I mentioned in my post on Sovereignty and Free will, that this debate has been played out already throughout history. I found this quote from St. Augustine which is very succinct:

If there is no [sovereign] grace of God, how does He save the world? and if there is no free will, how does He judge the world?

I found the link to your blog from Roger’s blog. It was great to see the picture of you guys. I would love to catch up with you some time.

We just finished the “Chosen by God” series by R.C. Sproul at New Covenant, St. Louis. It is a fantastic overview of the Augustinian and semi-Pelagian debate. For anyone who might be interested, you can find information on the series at www.ligonier.org
