'This offeres the texts of Erasmus' 1524 diatribe against Luther, De Libero Arbitrio, and Luther's violent counterattack, De Servo Arbitrio....In his introduction Watson...offers an impartial analysis of the two men's positions, while Rupp...in his introduction dismisses much of 'what is given as Erasmus' own original and conscious articulation' as a reflection of the background of Christian assumptions of the time, rendered 'at a level that is always edifying and profitable, but hardly ever profound.' Both editors assume familiarity with the circumstances of the conflict.'
The Library of Christian Classics, Ichthus Editon, presents in the English language, and in convient-size soft cover volumes, a selection of the most indespensable Christian treatises written before the end of the sixteenth century. These books meet the need of lay people and libraries, students and pastors, for a single set of books containing the great literature of the Christian heritage. The texts are heightened in usefulness by a wealth of introductory material, explanatory notes, biblioraphies, and indexes.
