Grace or truth
or both? Truth without grace breeds self-righteousness and crushing legalism. Grace without truth breeds deception and moral compromise. Is it possible to embrace both in balance? Jesus did. Randy Alcorn offers a simple yet profound two-point checklist of Christlikeness. In the end,” says Alcorn, we don’t need grace or truth. We need grace and truth. And for people to see Jesus in us, they must see both.”
"Randy Alcorn delivers his own work with a skill that sounds effortless. He discusses the differences between grace and truth, and why each is necessary to the other. Using modern stories to illustrate his points, he says that if Christians model Christlike behavior, their lives will reflect both truth and grace. Narrating with careful pacing and judicious timing, Alcorn states that grace is the cornerstone of salvation. The truth delivered without grace, he believes, leads to self-righteousness, and grace without truth breeds deception and moral compromise. A balance is needed. This is an audiobook to savor and to listen to time and time again."
