Provocative Grace focuses on the words of Jesus, not as rules to live by, but as challenges to provoke us to grow toward greater maturity. Robert Corin Morris asks us to enlarge our existing concepts, and to stretch our beliefs about Jesus beyond the borders of formal Christianity. Readers are encouraged to listen to Jesus’ words not with an attitude of uncritical acceptance or blind faith, but rather with an openness to hear Jesus’ message in a fresh way. Provocative Grace dares us to wrestle with Jesus’ sayings and to experience a vivid revelation of God’s love and grace.
Each chapter helpfully arranges the book so that it may be an aid to personal reflection, journaling, or discussion.
