Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?
From what I understand, Augustine says we have a will, but not a free will. In ch. 31 he switches from the phrase free will to good will, the good will being God's will. And then implies God can convert anyone. Not in the good way, as in noone is out of God's mercy, but rather, God overrides free will to save man because man is always bad. So before we receive grace we receive a free will. After, we receive God's will, and we become robots of God.
Indeed, Calvinists should love Augustine.
