Jerry Bridges on Red Like Blood

Posted on November 20, 2012 · Posted in Gospel

Red Like Blood MP3  audio-book now available!

“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.” 

This a book that does the unexpected. It presents orthodox theology in an unorthodox style. Coffee and Bevington are men who have been overtaken by grace. Like grace, Red Like Blood is at times uncomfortable.  It reminds us that God is not like us, he does not treat as our sins deserve. This is what makes the book special! This a book to challenge your faith. It is also a book to challenge the preconceptions that skeptics have about Christianity. If you are serious about your faith being vital and if you are serious about sharing your faith with others, Red Like Blood is for you!
