Please follow the links below to listen to Holy Joys Podcast: “Prevenient Grace and William Burt Pope (Part 1):

From the Holy Joys website:

This is the first episode in a series on William Burt Pope’s doctrine of prevenient grace. Dr. David Fry completed his PhD dissertation on prevenient grace at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. See also his article: “God’s Gracious Provision: A Theological and Exegetical Defense of the Wesleyan Doctrine of Prevenient Grace.”

Quotes from Dr. Fry:

  • There are four key points that Wesleyans make when talking about prevenient grace: (1) Grace is necessary. (2) We need enablement. (3) God has given enabling grace to all people. (4) Grace is resistible.
  • Initially, grace is given irresistibly. It’s just given to us without us asking for it. But once it’s given, it can be resisted.
  • Through the work of Christ, something happens to the entire human race.

Stay tuned for the continuation of this conversation.
