null.jpg_8844 Proof: Finding Freedom Through the Intoxicating Joy of Irresistible Grace by Daniel Montgomery and Timothy Paul Jones (Zondervan. 9780310513896. Paperback. $16.99)

The Gospel of Jesus Christ opens our eyes to the freeing power of authentic grace – grace that releases us from trying to earn God’s favor, grace that liberates from the tyranny of trying to please others, and grace that empowers us to pursue authentic holiness … Understanding more about how God’s grace works can help us to withstand the attacks of legalism and the cheapening of grace that leads God’s people to lose sight of the freedom and joy of the gospel.
