The doctrines of grace are usually referred to as the 5 issues of Calvinism, yet they weren't the discovery of John Calvin or his reforming cohorts of the 16th century. quite, they're biblical doctrines, as Dr. Steven J. Lawson demonstrates in his ebook Foundations of Grace. Now, in Pillars of Grace, Dr. Lawson indicates that the doctrines of grace were understood and taught—sometimes in embryonic shape, occasionally with nice clarity—throughout church historical past. From the time of the early church fathers to the period of the Reformers, key males within the church stood at the origin of Scripture and upheld the reality of God’s sovereign position in salvation. The inescapable end is that the doctrines of grace are not any innovation, however the constant witness of a few of the best males of the church.
