Tullian Tchividjian takes a fresh and creative look at aprophet's encounter with persistent grace, reminding us that weserve a good, merciful, and surprising God.God's compassion and pardon are utterly shocking in their lavishabundance-that's a lesson God himself pounded into the epiclife-story of one man who kept resisting in whatever way he could. Surprised by Grace retells that man's true story-ina gripping presentation that will open readers' eyes wider thanever to God's relentless, purposeful, and inexhaustible grace.The man's name isn't new to anyone. It's Jonah, the famous OldTestament prophet. This fresh unfolding of his story seeks torecapture the staggering effect it had on those who firstencountered it so many centuries ago-the same shock effectthat's desperately needed today among those who think they knowGod's heart far better than they really do.In a powerful journey through unforgettable events and imagery, Surprised by Grace reveals how relentlessly God pursuesrebels (a category that ultimately includes everyone), though hehas every right and plenty of reasons to give up on us all.
