Sola Gratia and Sovereign Grace with Dr. James White

Posted on November 7, 2010

Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries sat down with Echo Zoe Radio a few weeks ago to discuss the doctrine of Sola Gratia (grace alone) in addition to Sovereign Grace. From the plug for the show,

During the course of conversation, Dr. White explains Sola Gratia as a doctrine of the Reformation which was brought about to counter the Roman Catholic doctrine of Provenient Grace. He then went on to describe Sovereign Grace from a Reformed perspective and contrasted it with “Free Grace.” He gave his primary texts for support of the Sovereign Grace point of view: Titus 2, and 1 John. We discussed “moderate Calvinism”, how it’s a misnomer, as well as hyper-Calvinism. Dr. White then described some of the practical implications of coming to an understanding of Sovereign Grace. He also talked about works that he recommends on Election and Sovereign Grace. My favorite question was to ask how to explain these things to a three-year-old.

A very informative show indeed. You may also want to download Dr. White’s message from September on the same topic where he exegetes John 6:35-45: Sola Gratia (Grace Alone).
