In Friend of Sinners, you'll discover a different Jesus, a Jesus who will radically change the way you see God, yourself, and others - a Jesus who will never give up on you, never stop loving you.

Pastor and writer Rich Wilkerson Jr. shines a spotlight on every Christians calling to reach the world, seek the lost, and save sinners with Jesus scandalous message of the gospel of grace.
The Bible calls Jesus a friend of sinners. What does that mean? In Friend of Sinners, Rich Wilkerson Jr. shows readers the profound implications of the reality that Jesus calls us friends not because of who we are or what we have done, but because of who he is. While he was on earth, he knew that people needed to belong before they would want to behave. He understood that the power within him was greater than the darkness around him, so he loved fearlessly.
By following his example, we can have the same clear conviction and compassion for the lost that he did. His gospel of scandalous grace cannot be overestimated. When we embrace the truth that we all need Jesus equally and when we trust him to bring transformation in peoples hearts, we will walk as Jesus walked, experiencing the glory of God in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.
