Chafer’s exposition on the doctrine of grace is a classic definition of this essential element of Christianity. Not an exegesis or a commentary in nature, this is a doctrinal exploration. Chafer goes into great detail about the characteristics of grace in Scripture and in daily life, as well as its place in Christian theology. There is also a section on Jesus as the mediator of grace, the only way believers can understand and accept grace. Chafer also includes valuable practical aspects of grace and what it means for the believer for day to day living.
No subject was more dear to the heart of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer than the teaching of the Scriptures on the spiritual life.

I welcome therefore this present book on these fundamental truths. Having had the privilege of seeing it in manuscript, I bespeak for it the candid attention of all who are concerned for the truth of God.
—C.I. Scofield, in the preface to the 1936 edition of The Kingdom in History and Prophecy
I am glad of the privilege of calling attention to a presentation of the way of salvation which is certain to lead all who read it earnestly to a living faith in Christ, and then to a constant joy because of the abundant and assured provision of God for the Christian life.
—W. H. Griffith Thomas, in the preface to the 1917 edition of Salvation
