In this book, America’s greatest theologian explains one of Christianity’s most important subjects—the believer’s standing in grace. Edwards gives his usual thorough treatment as he examines the difference between common and saving grace, demonstrates the nature and qualities of saving grace, and emphasizes how a principle of grace is from the Spirit of God. Edwards also deals extensively and insightfully with the issue of the Holy Spirit as it relates to standing in grace.
This work was first published in 1865 by Alexander Grosart under the title A Treatise on Grace and was included as part of Selections from the Unpublished Writings of Jonathan Edwards. This new edition is typeset and edited for easier reading.
