Daniel D. Whedon wrote a devastating critique of Edwards’ Freedom of the Will in 1864 entitled The Freedom of the Will as a Basis of Human Responsibility and a Divine Government. It is a shame that it has been largely ignored and forgotten in the debate over the will. SEA has provided a link to the book where it can be read or downloaded on google books. In addition to this, John Wagner has recently released an edited version of the book titled, Freedom of the Will: A Weslyan Response to Jonathan Edwards. I will be writing a review of Wagner’s edited version both here and at Amazon in the near future. I highly recommend that anyone who is interested in the topics of free will and determinism, or anyone who believes that Edwards has yet to be refuted, read this book!
