Christians trying to model their lives after Jesus may find that He gets buried under lists, rules, and formulas. Now bestselling author Randy Alcorn offers a simple two-point checklist for Christlikeness based on John 1:14. The test consists of balancing grace and truth, equally and unapologetically. Grace without truth deceives people, and ceases to be grace. Truth without grace crushes people, and ceases to be truth. Alcorn shows the reader how to show the world Jesus — offering grace instead of the world's apathy and tolerance, offering truth instead of the world's relativism and deception.
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 is the author of Heaven which has sold over 4 million copies as well as the novel Courageous.Eternity with Kingstone Media is his first graphic novel.
