From free choice to God's choice
Augustine's exegesis of Romans 9
In the mid-390s, Augustine shifted his interpretation of Romans 9 from one highlighting the priority of man's free will in salvation to one highlighting the priority of God's sovereign choice in election. The change first appeared in To Simplician -- On Various Questions and remained a consistent part of his theology for the rest of his life. Carol Harrison's study Rethinking Augustine's Early Theology: An Argument for Continuity rightly emphasizes scriptural exegesis as a driving force behind Augustine's theology but downplays this important theological shift.
