How sovereign is God’s grace? Is grace a gift we cooperate with or an unconditional act that we undeservedly receive? What’s the difference between grace that is sufficient versus effectual for our salvation? Is regeneration monergistic or synergistic? In the order of salvation, does regeneration precede faith?

In this new episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Kevin DeYoung to discuss the Synod of Dort and what it teaches us about the irresistible nature of God’s grace in conversion.
