Red Like Blood is being well received for its bold presentation of the power of grace in broken lives.  Many have given up – believing that there is no hope in winning their battles with sin. Pornography, substance abuse and despair have robbed thousands of hope. But the message of the grace of Jesus Christ knows no boundaries. This is theme of Red Like Blood – the power of Grace!

If you know someone enslaved by the things of this world, if you know someone who has lost hope – Red Like Blood offers hope.

Here are some comments from some folks you can trust about Red Like Blood:

Justin Taylor

Bob and Joe shouldn’t be friends. They have different backgrounds, different personalities, different stories. But in these pages you’ll read the true story of a stunning event in the past that made them blood brothers for life. But be forewarned: this isn’t a typical ‘Christian book’ where the authors wear sanitized masks and explain how to live the good life. It’s an exercise in earthy honesty and gritty grace. These are guys who have seen sin up close and personal, and cannot get over being amazed by a bloody and risen and reigning Savior. Expect to be changed by reading it.”

Jerry Bridges

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.’ These memorable words from the pen of ex-slave trader, John Newton, could well be the sub-title of Red Like Blood. This book is the story of two men; one a preacher and the other an obvious sinner, who both learned to drink deeply from the gospel and to experience the amazing grace of God. Red Like Blood is captivating, challenging, and encouraging.

Both believers and non-believers will enjoy and profit from this book.

Derek Thomas

“Every now and then, a book emerges that challenges and informs in ways that seem fresh and stimulating. Employing captivating stories, Coffey and Bevington speak to an audience otherwise deaf to more standard forms of communicating the gospel. The stories are thrilling in themselves, but woven into the telling of them is a gospel-thread that both entices and captivates.

“It is difficult to exaggerate the usefulness of this book in communicating what grace means in the lives of individuals.”
