Sin, as Durso is right to insist, can only be understood in the light of grace. We cannot know our sin until we know God's grace. And that grace is known as it overcome and vanquishes our sin. For Durso, our shame and our brokenness rob us of the life God, in Christ, makes for us. And, like the Prodigal Sons, God's grace can only be made known because God has come to us in our own squalor and gifted us with more, so much more, than anything of which sin has robbed us.
This is the great "heist" of the Gospel -- that God in Christ takes back what the Enemy has stolen.
This is a book that easily change melt even the hardest heart, because it places the emphasis where the Gospel places that emphasis -- on God's love.
I received a free copy of this book as part of the Blogging for Books program in exchange for my honest review here.
