Book Description

29 Jun 2012 Faith Going Deeper
Grace - the free, unconditional and limitless love of God - is one of the epic words of the Christian faith and a key part of what is most distinctive about it. It lies at the heart of what is proclaimed in the Gospel, but is not well understood, even by Christians. For centuries, Christians have laboured under two opposing misunderstandings: the Catholic view: We must strive to be good in order to deserve God's love,or the Protestant view: Humankind is so sinful, we can do no good at all. To set a great imbalance right, this volume explores what grace is; how it flows from an understanding of the Trinity; how it becomes visible in the life of Christ; grace in creation, human freedom and the Church; ways of thinking about grace and living the life of grace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing "Grace" 2 April 2014
By Enty
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Peter Groves has written an amazingly clear book on a very difficult subject. I found it enlightening on many levels and can thoroughly recommend it as an easy way in to some important theological ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant start to a promising series 27 Nov 2013
By J. Jong
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Peter Groves's Grace kicks off Canterbury Press Norwich's "Faith Going Deeper" series on (to mix metaphors) a strong note, with a delightful and perceptive introduction to the Christian doctrine of God. Fr. Groves covers rather wide ground--from soteriology to anthropology to sacramentalogy--but appropriately so, as the doctrine of God is rightly the centre of gravity of all theology. I look forward to the rest of the series. Here's hoping it'll be as good as this debut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively simple, and brilliant 19 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fr. Peter Groves has always had the ability to take the most complex of concepts and put it into the simplest of terms, whilst at no point "dumbing down" or losing any of the richness and breadth of what needs to be conveyed. Much like his sermons, this is an absolute masterpiece of theology but in terms which make it wholly accessible to students of theology at any level.
