Dr. Jesse Couenhoven has received grants from the University of Chicago and Florida State University to support his scholarship on forgiveness and freedom. He recently edited a focus issue of the Journal of Religious Ethics on inter-religious and inter-disciplinary views of forgiveness. His book Stricken by Sin, Cured by Christ (Oxford University Press, 2013), explores Augustine’s claim, developed in his doctrines of original sin and operative grace, that we have limited control over our moral personalities. He has also published numerous essays and book chapters on Augustinian, Barthian, and feminist theologies of sin and grace, freedom, natural law, virtue ethics, forgiveness, and retributive justice. He is currently finishing a book that succinctly retells the logic of human and divine agency in Catholic and Protestant views about predestination.
