Product Description

Grace in Practice is a challenging call to live life under grace---a concept most Christians secretly have trouble with. Paul Zahl pulls no punches, contending that no matter how often we talk about salvation by grace, in our "can-do" society we often cling instead to a righteousness of works. Asserting throughout that grace always trumps both law and church, Zahl illuminates an expansive view of grace in everything, extending the good news of grace to all creation. Conversationally written and filled with fascinating insights, Grace in Practice will reward any Christian who seeks to understand the full measure of God's grace and the total freedom it offers.

Paul F. M. Zahl is Dean and President of Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania.

Editorial Reviews

Aspiring Retail
"Using Scripture, fiction, contemporary and classic movies, and other sources, Zahl demonstrates God's grace as the only hope for humanity, and shows how it can be practiced in common, everyday situations. Recommended."

First Things
"Zahl's newest and best book, Grace in Practice, is a fascinating, sometimes brilliant, and deeply pastoral attempt to work out [the] theology of grace as a universal principle for Christian doctrine and life."

Peter J. Gomes
— Harvard University
"Paul Zahl is at it again ? and, as usual, for the good of us all. He has been 'long on grace and short on law' for all of his ministry, and who in these difficult times could want more law and less grace? This is a book for everyday believers ? an act of grace."

Geiko Müller-Fahrenholz
— author of America's Battle for God
"Zahl's Grace in Practice cuts right across the patterns of thinking and acting to which Christians have become accustomed. An engaging and passionate book, intensely personal, witty and direct ? and provocative to the core."

J. Ligon Duncan III
— President, Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals
"Paul Zahl is a formidable scholar, an admired colleague, and a courageous churchman, but I especially love Paul Zahl the preacher ? his passion and humor, his power of description and illustration, and, above all, his zeal for grace. When he speaks about law and grace, I'm totally caught up in it ? even when he's beating up on my views! That same enthusiasm comes through in this book. Cascading pop-culture references are flanked with the profoundest of insights. A barrage of illustrations brings home Zahl's message. Martin Luther has his spokesman. In Grace in Practice, Zahl sets out a theology of the reality, experience, and expression of grace in the Christian life ? and then doesn't mind upsetting your applecart as he applies it specifically to just about everything."
