Tasting God’s Outrageous Grace
‘The big story of the Bible speaks of God’s great rescue project for lost people. The theme of the story is grace (undeserved love) and God’s method – shock and awe. This is a God of surprises who chooses unlikely people and works in unusual ways. Our studies through this season of Advent will help us dip into that story and see first-hand what it involves.
In these Advent and Christmas readings, Ian Coffey explores our amazing, all-loving, all-powerful God and how he reaches out to save us – if we only put our trust in him. Starting with Abraham and concluding with the heavenly vision of Revelation, Shock and Awe considers what it means to be people of faith, trusting God’s promises and encountering him in new ways in our daily lives. It reflects on some of the gifts that grace brings and shows what it means practically to live as followers of Christ and as people of hope.
Each of the daily readings, which cover 1 December to 6 January, concludes with a thought or prayer, and a study guide has also been included for those who may wish to compare notes with a wider group. An ideal book for those wanting daily Advent readings on the theme of God’s grace. If you like the style of writing of Tom Wright and David Winter, you’ll like this.
