God’s Extraordinary Grace for Ordinary Men
To read the biblical story is to read of the God whose extraordinary grace pursues ordinary people who struggled with personal failures, family problems, loneliness, and a long list of other weakness and challenges. Their stories are still our stories today. And their God is still our God. We will immerse ourselves in these biblical narratives to better understand who we are, who our Savior is, and how the Old Testament continues to testify to the Lord of mercy.
