Product Description

Robert L. Millet offers his perspectives as a Mormon and a scholar who has engaged in the study of grace. He suggests gentle correctives to his evangelical friends and his fellow Latter-day Saints regarding their respective views of grace. To the Evangelicals he suggests they may place an excessive stress on grace, to the point that they emphasize forgiveness but neglect repentance. By contrast, he chides the Mormons for overstating their own role in salvation, assuming that grace is available only after we do all we can. If there had been no Atonement, he writes, no amount of good works on our part could make up for its absence. Jesus is not only central to the plan of salvation; he is vital and indispensable. We cannot save ourselves. The proper management of this dynamic tension leads not only to doctrinal resolution, but to peace.
