The Grace of God. By Charles C. Ryrie. 1963. Reprint. Chicago: Moody Press, 1975. 126 pp. Paper, $1.95.
The publishers are to be commended for the attractive appearance, quality, and price of this paperback edition of what is probably the most helpful book in print on the extremely important subject of the grace of God. The chapters on “Living under Grace” and “Understanding Legalism and Liberty” should be pondered by every Christian.
