Grace: it is a disarmingly familiar word, yet a stubbornly difficult idea to understand fully. It is one of those words we hear in church all the time, yet how many of us can grasp its depths? It is a favorite theme of preachers because no matter how often you’ve preached about it, there’s still more to say. Yet when you wish to preach a sermon series (or even a single sermon) on grace, where do you go in Scripture? What texts do you choose, and how do you approach them for preaching? How do the different books and parts of the Bible speak differently about grace? Does the term mean the same thing in the prophets as it does in the gospels? Would you look for grace in the story of Cain and Abel? In the healing of Naaman? In the book of Philemon?

In this newest addition to the Great Texts series, Stephen Farris explores these and many other questions related to the one of Scripture's greatest themes. Choosing some of the most important biblical passages related to grace, he offers insightful commentary into the original context and contemporary meaning of these texts.
