The story of grace did not begin with the New Covenant. It started with God’s first revelation of himself. Grace and mercy are—and have always been—part of God’s character. Mankind has not always enjoyed the fuller revelation of grace as given to this generation. Author L. D. Clark’s Embracing Grace: Where the Law Ends, Grace Begins explains the evolution of grace. It is revealed in Genesis, but generations who lived before Christ could not enjoy its fullness because wrath was upon every soul that sinned. While the law of Moses temporarily stayed the execution of justice, it did not offer soul salvation. After Jesus bore God’s wrath for us all, greater grace became God’s gift to us all. It behooves us to know, understand, and avail ourselves to this new relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ. Grace is part of the Father’s legacy to this generation. Embracing Grace: Where the Law Ends, Grace Begins shows you how to revel in God’s grace and deepen your faith.

Even now, all around us, God is working out beautiful grace stories. Open the pages of this devotional book for a daily encounter with Jesus and His surprising, endless, life-changing grace.
Loves Embrace: Poems of Prayer, Hope and Peace, is a book about loves, the metaphors for expressions of life and great sacred love from all of God's children, nature and the universe.It contains approximately forty writings, which express themes of love, faith, hope and spiritual understanding. Some are metaphors, expressions of love and light. Some are similes that make you smile as well as spark an internal glow. The prayers and poems are accompanied by the biblical writings of the Divine, written by the prophets of the Old and New Testaments. Some are personal prayers and visions of what God has for me as well as for each of us. There is so much He has already given us. We simply have to recognize each glorious gift as we travel through life and in relationship.I did not begin to truly know myself and to accept myself as I am, until these special words, these holy words, began to flow from the Almighty into my heart, then from my heart onto paper. I began to experience the joy of Jesus, the Christ in my soul, an inexpressible exuberance and a sense of spiritual freedom I had never known before. And now that I have discovered that I could express this freedom and truly feel happiness by writing about this gift, I can, finally, with courage, express the opposing end of this continuum of sadness and serenity, and recognize that they are one in the same. We must surrender to our pain and sadness in order to experience the joy of Jesus Christ and all He has to offer us, for He is Lord of all.God is the true source of love that we are all a part, as He gave his only begotten Son, Jesus to the world to save our souls from condemnation (The Book of John the Divine, 3:16).

Faith develops in conjunction with the understanding of the dynamic importance of what grace is, what grace does, and how grace is a reality of each day.

Larry Gilbert presents a Devotional for ninety days by using Psalms, Proverbs, and the New Testament. The mystifying essence of grace is presented through Scripture, life application, and reflection. Come explore and develop an awareness of God's grace in your life. Grace is all and all is grace

In Dirty God: Jesus in the Trenches, Johnnie Moore draws on both Scripture and his extensive experience with other cultures and religions to show how the God of the Bible is unique in his willingness to be near us in all of our messiness. Moore outlines the central importance of the doctrine of grace while introducing readers to a humble and human Jesus who reaches out to us at our worst and pulls us up to our best. Grace, Moore argues, is something that is both gotten and given, and the two-part structure of the book allows readers to explore both of these dynamics. By offering hope rather than condemnation and showing the practical applications of grace in today’s world, Dirty God will appeal to both the committed Christian and the spiritual seeker looking for a more authentic faith. Challenging and engaging, Dirty God is sure to establish Johnnie Moore as an emerging voice for Millennial and Gen-X evangelicals for years to come.
