Grace in a Tree Stump

J Ellsworth Kalas

$28.99

Paperback
Also Available In
J. Ellsworth Kalas is Professor of Preaching and Dean of the Beeson International Center for Biblical Preaching and Church Leadership at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore Kentucky.

- Publisher Christians often assume too sharp a distinction between the Old and New Testaments, viewing the Old Testament as a book of law (in the sense of commandment) and the New Testament as a witness to grace. The God of the Old Testament is misperceived as a God of wrath and judgment, while the God of the New Testament is viewed as a God of love and mercy. This book is an effort to help laypeople see that grace has always been part of the character of God and that the Old Testament demonstrates that fact in a variety of ways. The character of God has not changed; it is only that we read it more clearly as we see more demonstrations of its nature.
