We spent many years in Louisville, KY, while I was doing MDiv and PhD work at Southern Seminary. While we were there we got involved with a new church plant being led by fellow student Daniel Montgomery. Though it started pretty small, today Sojourn is a large and thriving church with multiple campuses and an incredible music and arts ministry. We still miss it!
A lot of that growth is the result of Daniel’s charismatic leadership and his outstanding Bible teaching. He’s honestly a brilliant guy with a vibrant heart for the Gospel, authentic Christian community, and the mission of the church. Though we moved away many years ago, I still consider Daniel a friend.
That’s why i’m excited he’s written (with Timothy Paul Jones) a book called PROOF: Finding Freedom through the Intoxicating Joy of Irresistible Grace.
The book is a call to freedom through God’s grace:
Like a strong drink, God’s grace is intoxicating and dangerous. It simultaneously leaves you staggering and empowers you to stand. God’s grace not only declares us “not guilty!” in his presence, it changes our relationship with God—forever.
PROOF is an acronymn that stands for:
- Planned grace
- Resurrecting grace
- Outrageous grace
- Overcoming grace
- Forever grace
