"...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)

I'll occasionally be posting chapters here and would invite feedback on any of them. One final note: much of the material in the second chapter is taken from short articles I've written and posted here in the past, but the rest of the book will be entirely new.

    The question is simple enough, but it has sufficient complexity, below its surface, to warrant an answer and an explanation, which I will attempt to give you in this chapter, in three parts: the first will deal with why I am writing; the second with why I am writing this book; and the third with why I want you to read it.
