White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

What are the Means of Grace?

When new converts are brought into the church, they are often loaded up with the need to read the Bible, pray, practice repentance, and get into community—but equally vital to spiritual health is a right understanding of and participation in the means of grace. In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland discuss how the means of grace are used for our sanctification and why they are central to life and identity in the church.
