Dealing with Free Will in Contemporary Theology: is It Still a Question?

Issue: 8:1 (The twenty nineth issue)
Free will is a very hot issue in several theoretical settings, but less in theology,
or at least not as much as use to be in former times, when the discussions on
sinfulness, grace and freedom were igniting a long season of controversies,
especially in the Reformation time. Even in ecumenical dialogue apparently
free will does not play a great role, since the reached consensus seems quite
peaceful and agreement dominates over discussion. However, some theological
insights, especially Karl Rahner reflections, are still worthy to consider and
possibly theological anthropology should pay more attention to the current
debate and its consequences for the way we understand human nature and its
relationship with God.
