:
A Look at Grace from a Most Surprising Perspective – The Old Testament
 
Grace. We want to domesticate it, calm it down, and stuff it into a blue blazer and a pair of khakis. But biblical grace – or charis – doesn’t like to settle down. Grace is a dangerous topic because the Bible is a dangerous book.
 
Charis flows from the Preston Sprinkle’s half dozen years teaching the Old Testament to college students. You might think that would produce a book about judgment – but no way. He shows how every character, every event, every single page from the Old Testament bleeds with grace.
 
Take a journey into Charis - where harlots are hugged, enemies are enjoyed, and really bad people receive really good things from a Creator who stubbornly delights in undelightful people … like us.

Fresh revelation of God's Grace from OT
5 stars By Julz, Jul 21 2016
This book will give you a fresh revelation of God's Grace from Old Testament. If you have a view that God of the Old Testament is a fierce, angry God, your view will surely change by reading this book. I love the way Preston writes, very easy for laymen to follow, and also he is also very good in creating contemporary version of the stories in the Bible, while still doing very good exegesis on the historical and cultural context, so we can understand the stories better.
