Angry? Gentle? Cruel? Kind? What is God really like? In Outrageous Grace; popular author and pastor Dwight Nelson isn’t afraid to tackle the questions that arise from the diverse biblical descriptions of God. Admitting that the Old Testament portrayals of a harsh God are difficult for many Christians to focus on; Nelson skillfully guides the reader through texts that demonstrate how God works with individuals in the ways that will most effectively touch their hearts. Focusing on principles revealed in the parable of the prodigal son; Nelson shows us that God values relationships; not rules. God is a parent; teacher; leader; and friend. Most of all; He is a God of outrageous grace—a relentless lover and an unconditional forgiver whose loving goal is to take His children home to heaven.
