RT @CrownCourtChrchBoth sin and God are closer than we think, argues Ron Ferguson.
Author(s): Nick Baines
An exceptional and insightful reflection into the nature of a God who loves so deeply he will risk anything for His world and His people. The friends of Jesus were not the sort of people that every leader would want to have around them. Their humanity was all too evident. They were people who had feet of clay, motives as mixed and fickle as fool's gold and relationship histories as colourful and patchy as a crocheted quilt. They were people like us - living with the outrageous grace and mercy of God among us.
Scandal of Grace is a revised and updated version of a title that was previously published by Saint Andrew Press as Jesus and People Like Us.
