Unexpected Kindness: How Jesus Shows Us a Better Way to Engage the World


The Gospels depict a Jesus who engages sinners with undeserved and unexpected kindness, compassion, and mercy. What if Christians took his lead for how we engage the world in our day? What if, repenting of our self-righteous moral superiority we embraced our own need for God's grace as the defining truth of our lives? In these twelve studies in the Gospels, Unexpected Kindness will help you discover a life-altering theology of mission as well as real-life, practical applications for how to live as an ambassador of Jesus in a world desperate for grace.
