As a pastor, I appreciate finally hearing of God's grace and mercy and how that graceful living can impact everything we do. Too many books nowadays focus on hell or on rightful living, always with the threat of punishment behind them. Gully and Mulholland take a different approach...and explain together how they arrived at that approach. The approach is one of grace. Grace that infiltrates everything we do...from how we do church and worship to how we live out our everydays.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I agree with 80% of what they present here. I too am a universalist...however I disagree with HOW that grace is given to the world. In my book, Jesus is the conduit of God's grace. Jesus saves the world in his death and resurrection. That is a fact. A fact for the Christian as well as the Hindu and the Muslim and everyone else. The fact that we believe differently doesn't make that fact not true. I don't believe Gully or Mulholland see Jesus as pivotal as this...and so they eventually arrive at a different "reason" for this grace. Grace is grace...given to all, free to all, given by Christ. I can't take out that Christ part...and still be Christian.
Excellent book though...one that would be dangerous to speak of in mixed circles. Read this book with care and share it with care...or be prepared to be called a heretic...or worse!
