Overview

In the Christian world, there is Special Grace, which is knowledge of God through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. On the other hand, Common Grace is what a person can know of God through everyday life—experiences with family and friends, observance of the natural world. This is a book about the spiritual and moral pathways that can inform one’s everyday life. With the natural skills of a gifted preacher, Anthony Robinson connects stories and anecdotes to biblical wisdom and offers up valuable, useful, and inspiring lessons for life. Common Grace is divided in thirds: first he address the personal, the individual, the self. Next, he relies on the notion that a person is a person because of other people, and he moves to the next concentric circle of family and personal relationships. The third part of the book is about being a person in the world, interacting and contributing to the institutions and make up a society.
