Common Grace: How to Be a Person and Other Spiritual Matters (Hardcover)

Special Order - Subject to Availability


In the Christian world, there is Special Grace, which is knowledge of God through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. On the other hand, Common Grace is what a person can know of God through everyday life—experiences with family and friends, observance of the natural world. This is a book about the spiritual and moral pathways that can inform one’s everyday life. With the natural skills of a gifted preacher, Anthony Robinson connects stories and anecdotes to biblical wisdom and offers up valuable, useful, and inspiring lessons for life. Common Grace is divided in thirds: first he address the personal, the individual, the self. Next, he relies on the notion that a person is a person because of other people, and he moves to the next concentric circle of family and personal relationships. The third part of the book is about being a person in the world, interacting and contributing to the institutions and make up a society.
