"Grace: From First To Last"
Almost anyone today who calls himself or herself a christian will tell you that they've been saved by the grace of God. Sadly, however, if questioned further on the subject, you will find many, many times that a great majority of these people do not understand grace at all. They trust in their baptism, their "good deeds", their emotions, a decision they've made, etc. They speak of God's grace and sing about it in their churches; yet they try to make some sort of contribution to their salvation. Time and time again we hear the "evangelists" say "Christ has done his part now you must do your part." This is not grace!
When the Bible speaks of grace it is talking about a grace that is quite different that what is widely being taught today. Many books have been written for and against the doctrines that we'll look at in this study. This book does not claim to teach anything new. Some of the words are my own; some have been taken from other books, pastors, and Bible teachers. All of it, however, I believe agrees with what the Bible teaches about the grace of God.
The purpose of his study is to help the reader look for himself at what the Bible says. By no means is this to be considered an exhaustive work on the topic. Rather, it is to help inform and encourage the reader towards further study. I recommend using the King James Version when answering the questions.
