In The Grace of God, the author begins with a word study of the Hebrew and Greek words for "grace" in the Old and New Testament economies. He demonstrates the place of faith in the Old Testament and the relationship of election and grace in the Mosaic law. He then delineates the particular functions of grace through various sections of Scripture with emphasis on the Pauline concept of law and grace in the New Testament.
The book concludes with an excellent pair of appendices: "What is Legalism?" and "What is Liberty?"
Praise for the Print Edition
Instructive and inspirational, technical and yet simple.
