Charis by Preston Sprinkle

January 5, 2015

I picked up a free copy of Charis: God’s Scandalous Grace for Us┬áby Preston Sprinkle. As you know, if there is a book on grace, I want to get my hands on it.

I had never heard of Preston Sprinkle before. I have no idea what his views on other topics are. But, what I read in the pages of Charis, blew me away. This is one of the best books on grace I’ve ever read.

Sprinkle is a PhD and seminary teacher. He runs in academic circles. He brings great historical background to so many passages. But, unlike most academics who can only be understood by others with higher degrees, Sprinkle speaks the language of the people.

Charis is an overview of grace in the Bible with an emphasis on the Old Testament. Some “grace” teachers reject the Old Testament outright, even saying the Bible Society’s decision to include the Old Testament was a huge mistake. Charis proves them wrong.
