This fascinating book explains that the gospel is about the restoration of "cracked Eikons" (fallen humans) so that humans can be in union with God and in communion with the saints. In the candid and lucid style that has made McKnight's The Jesus Creed so appealing to thousands of pastors, lay leaders, and everyday people who are searching for a more authentic faith, he encourages all Christians to recognize the simple, yet potentially transforming truth of the gospel message: God seeks to restore us to wholeness not only to make us better individuals, but to form a community of Jesus, a society in which humans strive to be in union with God and in communion with others.
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.
Because of grace, good things happen even in the midst of a bad world. To the casual observer it may look like chance or luck.

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.
