Dirty God by Johnnie Moore

Instead of simply trying to explain what grace is all about, why not let an excellent writer flesh it out so that you experience it?

Moore writes about churchy topics in a way that reaches out and presents itself in an incredibly accessible way. Too often those who have been in church for a long period of time will fall back to platitudes and verbage that only resonate with other long-term church goers.

Biblical grace is a terrifying idea. It is not something that should be "boiled down". We have moved beyond the era of the shouting preachers. Moore writes to the audience of Rob Bell and Mark Driscoll. Some may not enjoy approach, but if it allows people to experience grace, then it is well worth the read.

There are two parts to this book: Getting Grace and Giving Grace. Moore moves beyond words and gives us examples and word-picture motivation to give meat to the grace topic. This plays out in eighteen chapters. Each chapter is quick to read. Each chapter will leave you pondering the implications.

I can't wait to share this with friends and explore the truth proclaimed in this book. Get it and share it.
