Review of Trent Et Quarante: Natural Theology
Trent Et Quarante, the origin of the name Trent, is actually a charming treatise on biblical natureism, which is also the origination of the title. The book is a response against the naturalism espoused by the Reformation and seventeenth century church fathers who rejected the doctrine of instant salvation by grace alone. Et Quarante argues through this book that grace can be a work done by free will, while faith can be a work done by predestination. This means that we choose to believe what we want.

The book's most important section is divided into three sections, each one dealing with one of three main theologies: original sin, grace, or merit. Parts 1 through 3 focus primarily on the doctrine of original sin. This book contains a number insightful conversations between contributors. Some of these conversations are surprisingly honest about how they relate religious belief to their daily lives. Some of the conversations are surprisingly poignant given the subject matter.

Parts two through three deal primarily with the doctrine of merit. Et Quarante presents a fascinating argument against original sin. He believes that those who believe in it are misunderstanding its meaning. Et Quarante and John Locke, his co-writers, claim that the doctrine about original sin gives rise to the idea of merit. For Locke, the idea that original sin unites a person with all the bad consequences of their actions is self-evident. According to Et Quarante, his co-writers, following Locke's view of merit would make one a sinner at the end.

Et Quarante argues that there is more to merit. Remember, however, that salvation is not a result of sins. It is because we were created in God's image and likeness. There is therefore nothing outside of our union with God. This is Et Quarante’s metaphysics about original sin, and the root of his message. He presents salvation as a mystery, and it is difficult to understand.

Et Quarante also tells the story of David, Bathsheba and the Absorption daughters. David had rejected the offer to Bathsheba, Esdragel's daughter, for divorce, because she was unfaithful to him. David was ready to marry Bathsheba, the daughter of Esdragel, because she was so beautiful. This was why he chose her to undo the damage that he had done. The metaphysics of original sin made it impossible for David to consummate their marriage as he was bound by the Law of Moses and the commandments of God.

In his explanation of this philosophy of merit and demerit, Et Quarante draws heavily on the work of Hugh Walker, Robert Edward Grant, and Anthony Coady although he admits the debt he owes to earlier works. Trent Et Quarante's own interest in medieval natural theology is evident in the fact that he includes several commentaries on the works of Basil, Origen, and Augustine. All of these writers support the doctrines of creation and divine providence. Many passages echo these arguments. The book includes many references and details to biblical scripture.

This is one of the most helpful books on natural theology that I have ever read. Trent Et Quarante presents a clear and concise explanation of this important subject. This is an extremely helpful guide for anyone who wants to become a strong defender of the faith.
