Between Common and Special Grace

In that same panel discussion, Leithart adds a category in the discussion of grace. For instance, if one asserts that the glory and advances of Western Society is simply a result of common grace, one would miss the immesuarable influence of Christianity in Western Society. In other words, it is not just common to all. One society is influenced by the work of Christianity and others have no such grace. The fact that the rain falls on the just and unjust seems to be a matter of “common life,” as Leithart asserts, not “common grace.”
