As a Bible teacher, Gayle had taught for decades about the amazing power of grace in a person's life. Yet it took a crisis in her husband's life and the crumbling of her own life around her for her to have an epiphany about the true nature of grace. In Courageous Grace, Gayle chronicles and explains her newfound insights.
Despite common misperceptions, grace is not safe. It's not easy. Frankly, it takes courage to show grace to those who deserve less. Oftentimes, the person showing God's grace gets counted among the sinners, just as Jesus experienced centuries ago. Gayle explores the story of Jesus forgiving the adulterous woman to reveal the courageous side of showing grace.
We live in a society that vacillates between glorifying sin and crucifying those who fall. Gayle encourages us to take the road less traveled?daring to do the hard work of showing God's grace to the sinners among us. It's what followers of Christ are called to do.
