How can it be? How can salvation be God's gift of grace through faith and not by works; yet there are tons of Bible verses that connect eternal life directly to obedience and faithfulness? It was a great aid to me to see how both are given, and they do not conflict at all. I have written several papers to show this, and they have been helpful to a number of people. So I am enclosing these into a book form. Each paper shows in various ways how both the faith and obedience verses are valid and precious.
"According to Scripture ... very good ... I agree with everything in it ... I don't think we will ever fully know God's part and our part, but this is the closest I have ever seen ... It is the best bridge I have seen ... I feel it is a unique and much needed contribution." (concerning Paradox).

"Very thought-provoking I've been aware of this Paradox, but having it presented like this highlights the grace-works elements in our faith which must be confronted. It also broadens one's appreciation for the Word." (concerning Paradox).
