Real life is long on law and short on gracethe demands never stop, the failures pile up, and fear sets in. Life requires many things from usa stable marriage, successful children, a certain quality of life. Anyone living inside the guilt, anxiety, and uncertainty of daily life knows that the weight of life is heavy. We are all in need of some relief.
Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian is convinced our exhausted world needs a fresh encounter with God's inexhaustible graceHis one-way love. Sadly, however, Christianity is perceived as being a vehicle for good behavior and clean livingand the judgments that result from themrather than the only recourse for those who have failed over and over and over again. Tchividjian convincingly shows that Christianity is not about good people getting better. If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good.
In this "manifesto," Tchividjian calls the church back to the heart of the Christian faithgrace. It is time for us to abandon our play-it-safe religion, and to get drunk on grace. Two hundred-proof, unflinching grace. Its shocking and scary, unnatural and undomesticated … but it is also the only thing that can set us free and light the churchand the worldon fire.

The author of numerous books, including Jesus + Nothing = Everything and Glorious Ruin, Tchividjian speaks at conferences around the world. He and his wife, Kim, have three children.
