Free Choice in Maximus the Confessor  This is an absolute must read. Heavy stuff. May take time, but well worth it. How are Divine Simplicity, impeccability, free will, determinism, the filioque, Christology, the divine energies, libertarian free will in in eternity and a free creation all related? Read and find out. The issues raised in this book really underpin and touch upon everything in the understanding of Orthodox theology and the Christological and Trinitarian formulations. I can’t stress its importance enough. For the book on   PDF:
