Van Mastricht, Petrus
A single beam of God’s grace can fill the soul with awe, wonder, and holy fear. This grace is most brilliantly seen in his work of saving sinners through Jesus Christ. Saving grace displays all the attributes of God. Saving grace creates worshipers. Saving grace sets us free.
The authors of this book marvel together over various aspects of God’s saving grace, from the first promise of saving grace in Genesis to the glory of everlasting grace in Revelation. Contributors include Michael P. V. Barrett, Joel R. Beeke, Gerald M. Bilkes, Jonathan Gibson, Hensworth W. C. Jonas, David B. McWilliams, Adriaan C. Neele, Paul M. Smalley, and Daniel C. Timmer.
