A Violent Grace
They seem to be at irreconcilable odds: violence and grace. Yet award-winning author and musician Michael Card paints a stunning and poignant picture of how violence was the price of grace. Based primarily on passages in Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22, the reader is led on an exploration of the suffering and sacrifice it took to achieve our salvation, of Christ’s separation from the Father so that we could enjoy intimacy with God, of His desertion so that we’d never have to be alone, of His rejection so that we’d find acceptance, and of His death so that we’d have eternal life. A Violent Grace gives readers a renewed appreciation for God’s eternal love and an important reminder that His love came at a terrible cost.
