Summary, etc.:
"Grace. We want to domesticate it, calm it down, and stuff it into a blue blazer and a pair of khakis. But biblical grace -- or charis -- doesn't like to settle down. Grace is a dangerous topic because the Bible is a dangerous book. Charis flows from the Preston Sprinkle's half dozen years teaching the Old Testament to college students. You might think that would produce a book about judgment -- but no. Instead Preston shows how every character, every event, every single page from the Old Testament bleeds grace. Take a journey into Charis -- where harlots are hugged, enemies are enjoyed, and really bad people receive really good things from a Creator who stubbornly delights in undelightful people ... like us"--Page 4 of cover.
