This volume brings together a number of various perspectives on theological anthropology which found relatively wide acceptance in early Christianity. Writings from Irenaeus of Lyon, Gregory of Nyssa, Pelagius, the Canons of the Council of Carthage, Augustine, and the Synod of Orange comprise the sources pulled from as the reader is taken all the way into the sixth century of selected Christian anthropological thought.

This book gives an overview of how the early church viewed the responsibility of man and God in the conversion process. Its fascinating to see that the debate between predestination and free will did not begin with Calvin's era, but has been going on since the second century within the church.
Since I was writing a paper on the subject, this book was a great place to start since it gave few primary sources and summaries of the major views.
