For my part, Sir, I think all Christians, whether Papists or Protestants, agree in the essential articles, and that their differences are trivial, and rather political than religious. (Dr Samuel Johnson to James Boswell 25th June 1763)


a. the freely given, unmerited favour and love of God.

b. the influence or spirit of God operating in humans.

c. a virtue or excellence of divine origin. d. the condition of being in God’s favour or one of the elect. (Webster Dictionary ninth definition of “grace”)


“In religion, of course, assumptions are the essence: it totters out to the end of the diving board of fact and makes a blind leap into the realm of the irrational, of faith and miracle.” (Bob Beale former Science and Environment editor of The Sydney Morning Herald, reviewing a book by Paul Davies in Spectrum SMH August 22 1998)
