What is at stake in the debate over free will and the sovereignty of God? Is it possible to take seriously human freedom and at the same time honour God’s absolute sovereignty over his creation? If God is the one who determines the course of events in the lives of men, how can man be responsible for his actions? Should Christians still pray if God in any way holds the future in his hands? These kind of questions are introduced in this chapter. The author makes use of beliefs like compatibilism and libertarianism to engage with previous debates.
