Grace is everything Mar 16, 2007
Among the mysteries of Catholicism, none is more practically important than the doctrine of grace. It is at the very heart of Christianity because it describes the panorama of God's dealings with mankind. However the doctrine of grace is not simple, as may be seen from the sequence of errors in the understanding of grace seen along the path of the Church's history. In this wonderful book "The Glories of Divine Grace," Fr. Matthias J. Scheeben explains Divine Grace in a clear manner, far from the abstract treatises of other writers. It is written in a direct style that everyone can understand.He reminds us of the integral role grace plays in our daily lives and how a clear grasp of the basic principles of grace is useful, and may at times be indispensable, for directing oneself and others on the road to salvation.

An impassioned appeal to us all to understand the nature of Sanctifying Grace, to preserve this incredible gift from God, and to grow in it each day for the rest of our lives. Explains how grace works, what are its effects, how to grow in grace, and the union with God that it allows us to achieve. Will amaze everyone!
