Few concepts are more important in Catholic theology than that of grace, but most adult Catholics never move beyond a schoolchild‚Äôs understanding of grace. Charles Journet explores philosophy, revelation and history to explain grace fully. Journet lays out both the doctrinal development of grace and corrects persistent mistakes that Catholics make about grace. He covers habitual grace, actual grace, predestination, justification, merit, and much more. He even includes a revealing exploration of Adam‚Äôs earthly paradise and how the nature of the Fall called forth God‚Äôs response of grace.
