    For centuries the Church's doctrine of predestination was acknowledged to be central to her spiritual teaching and this was certainly reflected in the works of the great doctors of the Church most notably St Augustine and St Thomas Auinas and their followers However in recent decades we have lost the richness of this doctrine in theological discourse Because people have negative associations with the word due to the Protestant Reformation and later the Jansenist heresy people balk at predestination or use it to mean a mere foreknowledge This book is an effort to reclaim the riches of the theological tradition and bring them back into prominent theological discourseSince this is a book of essays I will not attempt to give an over all commentary or review on the entire book except to say that it is well worth the read That being said I would like to draw attention to a few essays in the book in particular Fr Serge Thomas Bonino OP is the first author and he provides a wonderful status uaestionis of the Thomistic doctrine of predestination; he brings up prominent historical objections and also modern objections from Thomists eg Maritain and non Thomists alike Dr Steven Long writes the Introduction which gives some information on all of the essays as well as an essay on some of the metaphysical underpinnings of the doctrine Dr Nutt locates the theology of predestination within the theology of the Incarnation showing how the two are intrinsically linked Fr Thomas Joseph White OP gives 6 principles necessary for the proper understanding of predestination while acknowledging a la Dr Matthew Levering the impossibility of reconciling them this side of eternity Finally I would like to call attention to Dr Lawrence Feingold's essay one of the four essays in the volume which are critical of the classical Thomistic position on the distinction between Operative and Cooperative grace Dr Feingold connects this distinction up with the classical distinction between Nature and Grace which he has also written extensively on elsewhere and with which other Thomists may find common cause Then he shows how any discussion of predestination and grace should be grounded in this distinction primarily He then offers criticism of both the Molinist and classical Thomistic positions on this point Finally he defends his positions from multiple objections that proponents of the classical Thomistic theory would have against his theory It is my opinion that Dr Feingold offers the only legitimate alternative to the classical Thomistic position although ultimately I think his position falls short of remaining faithful to St Thomas's principles I think Dr Feingold's essay MUST be dealt with by anyone attempting to defend the classical Thomistic position and not merely by writing it off as Molinist or Syncretic which it is most certainly not

Grace Predestination and the Permission of Sin A Grace Predestination and the Permission of Sin seeks to analyze a revisionist movement within Thomism in the th century over and against the traditional or classical Thomistic commentatorial treatment of physical premotion grace and the permission of sin especially as these relate to the mysteries of predestination and reprobation The over arching critiue leveled by the revisionists Thomistic vs Molinist Predestination Part III Thomistic vs Molinist Predestination Part III It appears that the Molinist view doesn't work since Thomism can preserve freedom and perfect sovereignty not even mentioning the other problems with Molinism; the Thomist view seems inadeuate insofar as it is not clear what God's antecedent will is this being a willing apart from God's efficacious absolute and simple will Is there some Predestination John Calvin vs Thomas Auinas | Further the closeness of Thomism and the Reformed tradition on predestination and reprobation is not invented by modern ecumenists I can point to a number of eighteenth century Dominicans who appreciated the Gomarist position in the Synod of Dordt They didn’t like Calvin’s position but they thought rightly or wrongly that later Reformed theologians had embraced key concepts like Jacues Maritain Center CE Thomism Thomism I The Doctrine in General In a broad sense Thomism is the name given to the system which follows the teaching of St Thomas Auinas in philosophical and theological uestions In a restricted sense the term is applied to a group of opinions held by a school called Thomistic composed principally but not exclusively of members of the Order of St Dominic these same opinions being L'orthodoxie thomiste au pril du thomisme jansnisant La Pour une premire approche de l’histoire de la thologie thomiste l’poue moderne voir R Cessario Thomism and the Thomists Milan Le thomisme et les thomistes trad franaise Paris ; D Berger Thomismus Grosse Leitmotive der Thomistischen Synthese und ihre Aktualitt fr die Gegenwart Cologne et Id In der Schule des hl Thomistic News – Page – Thomistic Institute Predestination and liberum arbitrium in St Thomas Auinas June June Website Thomisticanet has recently paid attention to the new book on predestination grace and free will in St Thomas Auinas Dieu joueur d’checs?
