Real life is long on law and short on grace-the demands never stop, the failures pile up, and fear sets in. Life requires many things from us-a stable marriage, successful children, a certain quality of life. Anyone living inside the guilt, anxiety, and uncertainty of daily life knows that the weight of life is heavy. We are all in need of some relief.
Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian is convinced our exhausted world needs a fresh encounter with God's inexhaustible grace-His one-way love. Sadly, however, Christianity is perceived as being a vehicle for good behavior and clean living-and the judgments that result from them-rather than the only recourse for those who have failed over and over and over again. Tchividjian convincingly shows that Christianity is not about good people getting better. If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good.
In this "manifesto," Tchividjian calls the church back to the heart of the Christian faith-grace. It is time for us to abandon our play-it-safe religion, and to get drunk on grace. Two hundred-proof, unflinching grace. It's shocking and scary, unnatural and undomesticated … but it is also the only thing that can set us free and light the church-and the world-on fire.
