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.
