Ormerod, N. (2014). The Grace-Nature Distinction and the Construction of a Systematic Theology. Theological Studies : A Jesuit-Sponsored Journal of Theology, 75(3), 515-536.
The author considers the ongoing significance of the grace–nature distinction for systematic theology, the role the distinction has made historically, and current debates on its validity. He proposes that two developments advanced by Bernard Lonergan, the scale of values and the four-point hypothesis, can reinvigorate the distinction and ground new developments in systematic theology for the future.
