While nearly all branches of Christianity would lay claim to grace as the primary foundation for our future in heaven, there is a wide divergence of opinion on just what that means.
The understanding of grace among different factions within Christianity depends heavily on one’s understanding of justification, regeneration, sanctification, repentance, faith, and other biblical topics presented in this book. The author holds that grace is free, not in the sense of being cheap or easy, but as a free gift (Ephesians 2:9) with no strings attached, in contrast to Arminian or Calvinist soteriologies, which add requirements on the “front end” and “back end” of salvation. The Free Grace position, a biblical alternative to these systems of soteriology, is presented as a corollary of dispensationalism, affirming that God’s “so great salvation” is absolutely free.
In the Logos edition of Free Grace Soteriology, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can delve into your study of salvation like never before!
