"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    John,

    What did you think of David Well's book and did it have any interaction with differences between Catholic doctrine and Protestant doctrine?

    Hi Alan

    Well's book is one of the best I have read in a long time. It did not interact at all with RCC as far as I remember. It focused more about the various strains of evangelicalism - reformed, seeker and emergent and showed how the later two have veered away from historic Protestantism as religions from below (man reaching to God) and opposed to a religion from above (God coming to man to save him) .

    If you have not read this yet, here is a short excerpt:
