Overview

“This is a book for people who want not only to be saved by grace,

but to live by grace.” —John Ortberg

 

Writing in the candid, lucid style that made The Jesus Creed and The King Jesus Gospel appeal to tens of thousands of pastors, lay leaders, and active Christians, Scot McKnight has now updated another of his most popular books.

 

In Embracing Grace, Scot encourages us to recognize the simple yet 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 we strive to be in union with God and in communion with others. For this new edition, he’s added further reflections on the meaning of the gospel itself that will refine how you think (or rethink) about Jesus, the church, and the faith that you live.

 

“This is a message to be pondered, embraced, and embodied.” —Ross Wagner, professor of New Testament Studies, Princeton Theological Seminary

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this earnest interpretation of the Gospel message, McKnight reaches out to believers and potential believers wrestling with the complexities of a pluralistic world. A professor of biblical and theological studies at North Park University and author of more than 10 books, McKnight uses the Genesis story of Adam and Eve to posit that human beings are "cracked Eikons." Created to relate to God and to others but broken through disobedience, men and women need restoration through the Gospel. Comfortably navigating between classical theology and Scripture, McKnight also uses fictional, autobiographical and biographical examples to scrutinize traditional theological concepts such as creation, sin, redemption and grace. In asserting "the Gospel is the work of God to restore human beings to union with God and communion with others," McKnight is highly concerned to counter individualism, which he terms the greatest barrier to embracing grace. Being God's "special creation" is, instead, about being in relationship with others and about embracing responsibility for the whole created world. Although McKnight's prose sometimes hovers awkwardly between that of the theologian and the popular writer, this is a well-grounded introduction to some of Christianity's great themes in an appealingly contemporary style.
