Review: The Grace of God

The Grace of God The Grace of God by Samuelj. Mikolaski
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

This was an insightful read of a brief survey on the doctrine of grace in the Bible. He covers grace as taught in Eastern Orthodox and catholic traditions, it's teaching in the Old and New Testaments, it's key feature, it's significance in the Gospel message, and what it looks like or the actions divine grace has taken and takes "in Christ."

Mikolaski gives a clear, concise, and illuminating understanding of what divine grace is and it's relation to the Christian life. Interesting enough, at times he sounds Calvinistic and in other places Arminian while, still in a few other places, he shadows the Pentecostal/Charismatic, which means any minister tradition can apply and quote the wisdom of his writing here to their doctrinal a practical teachings and beliefs on grace.

Just reading this book is hard to pin him down (but I suspect he is Reformed), but his writing is thoroughly erudite, faithfully Biblical, and unashamedly Christian.
