This book is about grace the unmerited favor of God and the many ways that God has provided for grace to reach us. The author does more than speak of abstract theological concepts; he opens for us a door to his own life, his own personality, and his own experiences. Through them he shows how God enters into the lives of men and women, imparting grace to them through the instruments of the sacraments and the sacramentals.

This book has been written for you. It matters not if you are laity or clergy; it matters not if you have an extensive background in the study of theology, or just have a burning desire to find out more about the grace of Jesus Christ if youve clicked on this book, its for you. This is not a work of "high-powered" academic scholarship, nor is it intended to be devotional reading, though one may find a bit of both here. Rather, in the pages of this book I have attempted to translate the strange, sometimes confusing, often annoying complexity of much academic scholarship into terms and expressions, stories and concepts that both those in the pulpit and those in the pew can understand and apply for everyday Christian living. If I have succeeded in this endeavor, then this book will have achieved its purpose.About the Author:
