Why do Christians--even mature Christians--still sin so often? Why doesn't God set us free? We seem to notice more sin in our lives all the time, and we wonder if our progress is a constant disapointment to God.
In Extravagant Grace Barbara Duguid turns to the writings of John Newton to teach us about God's purpose for our failure and guilt--and to help us adjust our expectations of ourselves. Her empathetic, honest approach, candidly incorporating illustrations from her own struggles, lifts our focus from our own performance back to the God who is bigger than our failures--and who uses them for his glory. Rediscover how God's extravagent grazce makes the gospel once again feel like the good news it truly is!
