dc.description.abstract The explanation of the question of grace and freedom presented in the article is in fact a speculative one. However, this does not mean that it is abstracted from the data of the Revelation ‒ and especially from the biblical data. On the contrary, it seems that it lets one take into consideration and integrate more positive elements of the Revelation than the classical theological presentations of the same issue. The basis for this presentation is consistent acceptance of the image of God as of “One who mostly is not for himself” and is “only giving and receiving” The consequence may be presented in the following steps, in which radicalism of Love, as the essence of God, comes into prominence: 1) God who is only giving and receiving (Love), by the very fact agrees not to occupy the possible space of existence with himself; 2) in this way He gives the whole possible space of existence to the creation; 3) since among the possibilities of the created existence there is the conscious and free existence, and since this possibility is realized; 4) since in its primary (and spontaneous) choice human freedom turns to anything that it falsely accepts as God (as the source of its name), and treats it as God, it makes it impossible for itself to find out about the true God (and at the same time about its own real name); 5) only God can overcome this impossibility: He may let man get to know Him in such a way that it will remove the falsehood issuing from man’s “self-disabling” to accept what actually God is to him; 6) hence help for the fallen man is possible at the price of God’s even greater gift to His creation. This gift may be such presence of God in the space given by Him to His creation that man could find Him also when he turns to the created things; 7) this means that it is not only giving to the creation all the space of existence that is a manifestation of God’s love to it. Its radical shape is His agreement to be in the space in the same way as the creation (and not in the way God might be); 8) and this is exactly what happened in Jesus Christ’s event ‒ that is all grace and the source of man’s freedom, which is possible again. pl_PL
