The Holy Ground of Grace

Dog Ear Publishing, 2005 - 156 páginas
"This is the fact of the matter-ivory-tower Christianity is a myth for most of us. For all of us. Yet we try to function, we have to function, in faith, despite our own shortcomings and the shortcomings of those around us. We try to live our lives in a lessthan- perfect world as less-than-perfect people who fall down, flat on our faces, time after time after time. Yet by grace through faith we get up, all the while clinging desperately to our hope in the Son. The Son of the promise." Tim Bowers is a product of grace--God's Grace. And that very grace is the subject of this book. He believes that life is a dance, a thing of beauty. And he further believes that it is an adventure in grace. Grace to behold, to embrace, to enjoy. He believes that it is God's grace which underscores our very lives and permeates both our every relationship and our every adventure. Tim is the father of two children and the third of four born to his parents, both retired educators. He is firmly and forever a product of the South, having grown up in Georgia and in the Southern Baptist Church; however, it was while living in Nashville, Tennessee, as a young businessman, that he discovered the doctrine and meaning of grace by faith alone. Since earning his Masters of Divinity in 1998, Tim has worked as a pastor, an outreach director, and as a church planter. He believes that the Church should reflect the Savior upon Whose cross it is founded-that it should be raw and real and reflect both the passion and the compassion of Jesus Christ Himself. That it should be anything but boring and that it should proclaim grace by faith alone in a nonjudgmental manner that truly changes lives.
