In Augustine's eyes, the real danger of Pelagianism rested in its tendency to suggest that man, of his own free will, has the ability to earn his way to salvation. Such a view, taken to its logical ends, would result in a religion of works and merit. Instead, in On Grace and Free Will, Augustine points to the Scriptures to remind his readers that the grace of God is essential to the salvation of mankind. His reminder rings true for believers and seekers of all ages and his work remains widely read because of its complete and thorough treatment of one of the most foundational truths of Christianity.
Have you ever read the New Testament and came to the end wondering, "what happened next?", or "what became of the churches Peter and Paul planted?". Wonder no more, as this book will introduce you to the texts, disciples and companions of the Apostles and beyond:
