From the Back Cover
What is the role of the will in believing the good news of the gospel? Why has there been so much controversy over free will throughout church history?
Willing to Believe is a major work on the Protestant doctrines of man's total depravity and God's effectual grace. R. C. Sproul traces the free-will controversy from its formal beginning in the fifth century, when Augustine took up the pen against Pelagius, to the present.
By the time you finish this historical tour, you will understand the nuances separating the views of Protestants and Catholics, Calvinists and Arminians, the Reformed and Dispensationalists. You will also see how this debate colors our view of our humanity and shapes our understanding of God's character.

Using scripture from which to build his arguments, he demonstrates how the will has been affected by the fall and how this alters human ability, not in that we lose our wills, but in that we simply don't will that which is good and right.
I highly recommend this book to both the beginner and the advanced theologian. All will come away with something of value, no matter what their perspective on the issue of free will was when they picked up the book.
