Abstract

Invited to join in the long-running ecumenical gift-exchange taking place in Christian dogmatics concerning the theme of divine grace, what distinctive house present might a contemporary Reformed theologian bring?2 The confessional cupboard is not bare of course: on the shelf just there above sin, guilt and self-loathing—that traditional Calvinist ‘triumvirate motivating forces governing human behaviour’3 —lie election,covenant, regeneration, perhaps even ‘union with Christ’, ready to hand.
