“To affirm his union with the love of his life would mean me having to deny the love of mine” —Scott Sauls
I’ve appreciated Scott Sauls’ writing ministry for some time now. He is honest about his own struggles and need for grace. His writing is firmly rooted in the amazing truths of the gospel. And he tackles flammable cultural issues with a firm winsomeness. All of that leaks into Jesus Outside the Lines. It’s always disappointing to pick up a book that starts strong, but fizzles out by the end. Jesus Outside the Lines starts strong and g...

As much as I appreciated Walton arguments, I’m not convinced of the archetypal position and all that it entails
In May, I read John H. Walton’s The Lost World of Genesis One and was challenged by Walton’s Scriptural handiwork and exegetical focus. “As interpreters of Scripture and as theologians, we are accountable to the biblical text ” (12). It was a set up. I didn’t know at the time, but The Lost World of Adam and Eve was a companion volume expanding the thesis of Genesis One. In a nutshell, Walton argues the creation account is primarily a...

If you are constantly tired and doing bad work, it will make it hard to have a gospel witness.
What does sleep have to do with being a mature disciple? We all have seasons of life where we might get less sleep than we should, but the right amount of sleep is integral for being a mature disciple. Mature disciples get sleep. D. A. Carson explains the importance of sleep: Doubt may be fostered by sleep deprivation. If you keep burning the candle at both ends, sooner or later you will indulge in more and more mean cynicism—and ...

“Doubt may be fostered by sleep deprivation. If you keep burning the candle at both ends, sooner or later you will indulge in more and more mean cynicism—and the line between cynicism and doubt is a very thin one”

The Kingdom of Jesus advances through subversive acts of love—acts that flow from conservative and progressive values

You can’t be fully present and half asleep. Mature disciples know this and get enough sleep

Introduction
Mission

Grace for Sinners exists to make much of God through the power of the Holy Spirit by heralding the reign of King Jesus for the glory of the Father and the joy of all peoples.

What Can You Expect?

We offer bi-weekly articles mainly through the lens of biblical theology as the unfolding story of the gospel in the person and work of Jesus Christ intersecting the gospel with everyday life. On the weekends, the review staff (below) recommends books on a variety of subjects in hopes of saving you time and money by pointing you to the best resources available.

Meet the Review Staff

We have fun talking books, theology, and poking fun at our differences. Having a team allows us to highlight a variety of books, while still outputting high quality reviews.

Mathew B. Sims is the author of A Household Gospel: Fulfilling the Great Commission in Our Homes and a contributor in Make, Mature, Multiply (GCD Books). He completed over forty hours of seminary work at Geneva Reformed Seminary. He also works as the managing editor at Gospel-Centered Discipleship and the assistant editor at CBMW Manual. He regularly writes for a variety of publications. Mathew offers freelance editing and book formatting.

He’s married to LeAnn Sims who blogs at The Modest Homestead and is a creative force in design and event planning. They have three daughters—Claire, Maddy, and Adele—who are joyful, mischievous, and full of wonder (he’s outnumbered if you’re counting). They enjoy having fun—romping in the woods, swimming, singing, reading, and traveling. When the rabble-rousers are asleep, he enjoys watching a good movie with his wife. He loves reading, the outdoors, and cooking good food. He hydrates daily with coffee. And he’s a prodigal Apple geek.

Joshua Torrey is a New Mexico boy in an Austin, TX world. He is husband to Alaina and father to Kenzie & Judah and spends his free time studying for the edification of his household. These studies include the intricacies of hockey, football, curling, beer, and theology. You can follow him @AustinPreterism and read his theological musings and running commentary of the Scriptures at The Torrey Gazette.

Jennifer Guo counts beans by day and eats books by night. She is passionate about the gospel and loves biblical and theological studies. She also loves the arts and is part of a performing arts ministry that uses a variety of mediums to communicate the gospel, God’s heart, and His design for sexuality, relationships, and marriage. Jennifer also loves running and cooking (and not because running allows her to eat more). You can follow her @JenniferGuo and read more of her thoughts at Jennifer Guo.
