Blog Tour for Sanctified by Grace: Mere Orthodoxy starts a week-long series

Over at Mere Orthodoxy, Jake Meador starts a week-long review of Sanctified by Grace with a post on Suzanne McDonald’s chapter, “Election”. Check it out here. (See previous reviews below).

Far from being a doctrine that should make us fear God or see him as a kind of moral monster, the doctrine of election reminds us that God cares for all of creation and that he is faithful to those with whom he makes covenant. It is, in other words, a deeply pastoral, comforting doctrine that helps individual believers understand the purpose of their salvation as well as the security of their salvation. The above is one example of what I mean when I say the book does a marvelous job of connecting Christian theology to the Christian life.
