The Spirit of Grace

Format: Digital
, 2015
ISBN: 9780281068395


The Christian Belief for Everyone series guides readers through the basic ideas of the Christian faith. Full of engaging stories and helpful illustrations, these texts have been written primarily for ordinary churchgoers, but also appeal to interested readers outside the Church.

In the fourth volume of the series, Alister McGrath continues his exploration of the basic themes of the Christian creeds, asking what the Apostles’ Creed means when it speaks of “the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, and the forgiveness of sins.” The Spirit of Grace explains three interconnected themes: the activity of God in the world, as we experience the Holy Spirit infusing our lives with purpose and joy; the graciousness of a God who loves us despite our constant failures; and the importance of the church as the community of faith, in which we catch a glimpse—no matter how inadequate—of the glory of heaven.
