by Loraine Boettner
In this 8 chapter work by Boettner (Reformed, Presbyterian), he examines common (that being enjoyed by all people). He first looks to the Westminster Confession’s teaching, then the necessity of change, the inward change done by supernatural power, the effect produced in the soul, the sufficiency of Christ’s work — evangelicalism, the Arminian view of Universal Grace, No violation of Man’s free agency, and common Grace.

It is my understanding that works published between 1923-1963 have a 28 year first term of copyright, and IF RENEWED, they have an additional 47 years. On Sept 12, 2011, the rutgers.edu, sanford.edu, and http://cocatalog.loc.gov renewal databases were searched and no renewals were found in those databases for Loraine Boettner, much less this specific work.
