Jon takes the reader by the hand to follow him down a path of examining where God is already at work in our lives demonstrating His incredible grace. Clearly this is a book written by someone who has not just studied the theology of grace but whose personal life story as well as vast experience in counseling and pastoral ministries has given birth to a rich and practical understanding of what it means to resist and accept God’s gift of grace at every stage of one’s journey. Resisting Grace is less about ‘getting’ grace and more about opening one’s eyes to God’s loving pursuit of us in places of denial to brokenness to total surrender. In finishing the last pages of the book, my heart swelled with praise to my God who indeed pours out His love and grace even in my resistance often times against the precious gift of Himself.
