The Transforming Power of Grace by Thomas C. Oden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A thorough treatment of grace. Emphasizes that grace goes before faith, works all through faith and repentance, and continues to keep and shape those who respond to God's call to salvation. A deft Arminian treatment of grace, highlighting dozens, it seems, of aspects and categories of grace. This is no Semi-Pelagianism. The effectiveness, power, and comprehensiveness of grace is emphasized alongside the responsibility of each person to respond with appropriate faith. When people refuse Christ, the defect lies not in grace, but within the fallen will.
