Product Description

Combining lively prose and creative insight, pastor and radio host Peter W. Marty probes the intricacies of daily human experience and invites readers to reconsider their faith lives with fresh eyes. In this collection of reflections from a pastoral heart, Marty carefully slices the contours of divine grace and views them in micro- and macroscopic fashion for the sake of appreciating the magnificence of the body of Christ---the church.

The Anatomy of Grace takes well-worn religious language from another era and refashions it into powerful speech for the twenty-first century Christian. Organized around the themes of serendipitous grace, unobtrusive grace, ordinary grace, surprising grace, mysterious grace, and weightless grace, the work is both a treatise on living the Christian life well and a stirring reminder of why congregational life matters so significantly in America.
