Fall to Grace: A Revolution of God, Self and Society, By Jay Bakker
I admire Jay and enjoyed his earlier book, Son of a Preacher Man, which I recommend to anyone who wants to see how a young man can find the love of God in the crazy TV world that raised Jay Bakker.
However, in Fall to Grace Jay takes his Grace trip to the next level. Part spiritual memoir like his first book, part bible study, Jay takes us on a tour of perhaps the most liberty-affirming book in the Bible, Paul's letter to the Galatians. Meanwhile he shares with us vignettes from life that show God's mercy and power in the unlikeliest of places.
From the mad world of PTL Ministries in Charlotte, North Carolina to Pete's Candy Store in Brooklyn, New York, Jay has discovered an outrageous grace -- the infinite love of an infinite Abba.
