On the Grace of God is a liberating study on something we can never get enough ofthe startling and magnificent grace of God. In Jesus, John tells us, we have been given 'grace upon grace.' This book helps pour that grace upon grace on the heart of the reader, filling it with hope and joy in believing.

Amidst all the world religions and belief systems, grace is what makes Jesus followers different. There's nothing that can stop a heart thats been overwhelmed by grace. This book is a must read!
The message of this book should never get old. Sinners saved by such astonishing grace will marvel for a lifetime that they've been rescued by such a God. More than that, we will marvel for all eternity at the personal manifestation of grace in the face of Christ Jesus. Go ahead now, sit yourself down with this book, get ready for heaven, and make yourself of more earthly good by meditating on the mind-stretching grace of God in which we are chosen, called, born again, justified, adopted, sanctified, glorified, and ushered into the very relationship with the God-man for which we were made. It is all of grace.

This book offers a clear, concise, and compelling presentation of the grace of God. Many point grace out, and some might test it with their toes, but my friend Justin Holcomb is ever swimming in it, inviting all to join him. This will be now my go-to book recommendation on the subject.

Justin introduces great theologians to the reader in the same way he would introduce neighbors to one another at a backyard barbeque. Through relaxed conversation, Justin invites the authors of Scripture and great Christian thinkers to sit with the reader in the presence of the touchable and knowable God of grace. Simple but scholarly, On the Grace of God is that book you will want to put into the hands of everyone you knowthose who do not yet trust Christ as Savior and those who do.
Reconciliation Specialist and Founder, Live at Peace Ministries; coauthor, Peacemaking Women: Biblical Hope for Resolving Conflict
On the Grace of God right-side-ups the upside-down-ness of our brokenness and broken thinking about God and his love. Since the Bible will not let us have virtuous ideas detached from their embodiment in Jesus'God is love,' 'he himself is our peace,' 'I am the truth'Justin Holcomb will not offer anything less than the glorious Jesus either. Brilliantly, honestly, and passionately, this book bleeds the gospel.
-Jared C. Wilson,
pastor, Middletown Springs Community Church; author, Gospel Wakefulness
My friend Justin Holcomb wholeheartedly believes that the gospel of grace is way more drastic, way more offensive, way more liberating, way more shocking, and way more counterintuitive than any of us realize. He understands at the deepest level that there is nothing more radically unbalanced and drastically unsafe than grace. It is high time, in my opinion, for the church to embrace sola gratia (grace alone) anew. No more 'yes grace, but...No more fine print. No more conditions, qualifications, and footnotes. And, especially, no more silly cries for 'balance.' It is time to get drunk on grace. Two hundred-proof, defiant grace. Justin understands that grace is scandalous and scary, unnatural and undomesticated. But he also knows that its the only thing that can set us free and light the church on fire.
Pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church; author, Jesus + Nothing = Everything
On the Grace of God is just what we've needed: a scripturally rooted and deeply compassionate survey of how Gods uncompromising love for sinners shines through the entire biblical narrative. How Justin Holcomb pulled off such a comprehensive feat in so few pages is a refreshing testament not only to his great learning and wisdom but also to his passion for reaching everyday men and women. Anyone looking to be encouraged by the unchanging and life-saving reality of Gods grace in Jesus Christ should look no further.

Holcomb brings great understanding of God's grace and lovea love undeserved and unconditionally given through the only one Christ Jesus. On the Grace of God is an eye-opening, biblically-rooted telling of the love story between God and his people. Where love and grace that are many times misunderstood or misinterpreted, Holcomb sheds light on what Gods true grace looks like.

Paul's stated mission was 'to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.' As twenty-first century believers, that is our mission as well. But in order to do that, we must know God's grace ourselves. This book is a fresh reminder of how wonderful, matchless, and amazing is the grace of Jesus, a grace that is greater than all our sin. I was blessed in reading it and am sure you will be too.
Associate Pastor, Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa, California
This book will cause you to laugh and dance not because it is a wonderful book (even though it is) but because it's all true almost too true to believe. I know of no voice that speaks so clearly about God's grace than that of Justin Holcomb. Read this book and you will join me in "rising up and calling him blessed" for having written it. And then give it to everybody you know and they will rise up and call you blessed for having done so.
