“As coordinator of the Henrici de Gandavo Opera Omnia since its beginning, it is for me an honor and a joy to present the excellent work of Professor Roland J. Teske, S.J., ... which is entitled Henry of Ghent: Quodlibetal Questions on Free Will .... Professor Teske is the first to use the critical edition of the Opera Omnia for offering the modern reader ... a volume of characteristic extracts from Henry’s thought .... Professor Teske’s introduction gives in a clear and succinct manner the essentials of Henry’s life and writing, sketches his Quodlibetal Questions, and then indicates the major lines of his teaching in them concerning the treated theme. He then directly confronts the modern searcher after truth with some carefully selected questions from these Quodlibets, translated in a faithful and at the same time clear and handy way.” — Raymond Macken, Louvain
