Messy Grace its for everyone

How to love others without sacrificing convictions. This is the basis of this book. The author was raised by Gay parents so he gives a very insightful perspective in how to deal with, love the Homosexual. The title comes from when we share truth but with grace it gets messy. "To understand messy grace , we have to understand how to love people no matter who they are" and when you deal with people, you'll get messy.

The LGBT community is a group that most Christians try to ignore or avoid,Mr Kaltenbach reminds us that Jesus pursued people whose lives were messy and their hearts were far from God, He met them where they were. Since God demostrated His love for us in that while we were sinners Christ died for us, why should we expect others to change before they come to Jesus. This book will help the reader better minister to the LGBT community, just as Jesus would if He was on earth today. Of course the best way to do this is through building a relationship that one has already formed. We can't do it with a us vs them mentality after all we accept others as friends and family without approving of their life choices.
The author is Biblically sound in his dealing with this subject. This is a good how to book and it is a book everyone should have on their book shelve. I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for honest review of which is my own.
