It's easy to treat the concept of grace as mere theory, but grace is the door to genuine Christian living! In Grace in Community, Jim McNeely flips our view of grace on its head and shows that grace isn't theoretical-it's real life.
Christianity finds its true expression in community ("A new commandment I give you, that you love one another.") God's radical love-torn grace is the beating heart and narrow gate to close and enduring relationships between imperfect people.
Too often we find ourselves withholding love from others because we judge their actions. We accept grace vertically from God but struggle to believe in the power of that grace horizontally between ourselves and those around us. If we start seeing others as Jesus did, as people worth dying for, then we can begin to see grace work out in our real life relationships.
In this exploration of 1 John, Jim McNeely considers the difference between moral pretense and authentic community, the significance of the grace God has shown us, and what that might look like in our everyday lives.
