Edwards on the Will An Inquiry into the Modern Prevailing Notions of the Freedom of the Will which is Supposed to be Essential to Moral Agency, Virtue and Vice, Reward and Punishment, Praise and Blame or simply The Freedom of the Will, is a work by Christian reformer, theologian, and author Jonathan Edwards which uses the text of Romans 9:16 as its basis (So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.) It examines the status of humanity's will, taking the Calvinist viewpoint on total depravity of the will and the need of humanity for God's grace in salvation.
