This title doesn’t disrespect our God by calling Him dirty. The author presents Jesus as a working person like we are, someone who can understand and relate to our lives, someone who got dirt under his fingernails.
We are reminded of the huge change Jesus experienced in leaving heaven to live on earth. However he never complained or sought an easier time here. He understood the purposes for his earthly life.
Moore writes to help us understand the awesome grace that God offers in a way that helps us rejoice to the fullest in our lives. Grace is the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done or will do.
Moore gives a full and balanced presentation about grace—that this amazing gift from God is free, yet not cheap. Costs can be involved in living a life of grace but these costs are well worth while. The writer shows the many advantageous of living in God’s grace and also cuts away some myths about this superb concept.
The language is conversational and sometimes ideas may surprise you. This book is satisfying, helpful and rightly challenging.
