Explosive, pervasive, sweet, powerful, relentless, amazing, devastating, raw, beautiful, are all words to describe a single reality: Grace.
Grace is not flat or one-dimensional. It is a jewel with many facets and held up against the light grace is absolutely captivating. Joe Coffey and Bob Bevington, the authors of Red Like Blood, have been captivated by the wonder and the power of grace.Red Like Blood is an attempt to hold that jewel in such a way that it catches the light and moves into your soul like a flood.
Have you noticed that grace is most likely to flow into cracks formed by brokenness over our sin or circumstances? In Red Like Blood you will find story after story of brokenness and the grace that entered in. Some stories are from Joe, a pastor’s kid turned pastor. Some are from Bob, a prodigal come home. And some are from the many inspiring characters they have met along the way. The stories are often raw and always brutally transparent. Because wherever real grace flows, real brokenness was there first.
There’s a reason the book is titled Red Like Blood. Every chapter points to it. And it’s something you don’t want to miss–the source, the essence, the fountain of God’s grace. The Story that, with a common scarlet thread, ties all stories of confrontations with grace together.
