A good discussion on the teaching of Predestination and how the Catholic Church has understood it. Lagrange is clear, goes through many objections of a Thomist understanding, as well clears up the errors of Protestant Calvinist teachings which the Jansenists were prone to as well. Beautiful, especially the conclusion in the last chapter. A hard read but well worth the time!

A difficult book. I may have to read it again few times to get more out of it. This is by far the best treatment on predestination I have ever read. It states clearly the different schools of thought within Catholicism. It also shows the errors of various heresies.
