An author and religion columnist examines the relationship between culture and grace, sharing her experiences with grace in her travels, personal life, and conversations with people from around the world.

Publishers Description
Justice is getting what you deserve. Mercy is not getting what you deserve. And grace is getting what you absolutely don't deserve.Award-winning author and columnist Cathleen Falsani says, 'People regularly ask me why I believe in God. The simple answer ... is grace.' In Sin Boldly: A Field Guide to Grace, Falsani explores the meaning and experience of grace through story and song, quotes and photos.Falsani says, 'Grace makes no sense to our human minds. We're hardwired to seek justice, or our limited idea of what that means, and occasionally dole out mercy. Grace is another story.' Sin Boldly is an uplifting, multifaceted, and thought-provoking look at what makes grace so amazing.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Eye Opener  Nov 23, 2009
This quick but powerful read will give you new eyes to God at work ... in the ordinary and in the extraordinary. Powerful stuff and well written.
Amazing Grace  Sep 19, 2009
This is a remarkable book, very well written and important. Cathleen Falsani is a seasoned journalist with a very enjoyable style. Each chapter is a stand-alone story of some aspect of God's grace. It's not in-your-face religious; in fact, I believe that most of my non-Christian friends will enjoy the book.
One thing I especially enjoyed was the idea of "gracespotting" -- looking for example of grace ("unmerited favor") in daily life. If you pay attention, they are everywhere.
I think what really stands out to me, besides the joy and amazing nature of grace itself, is Falsani's humility. She regularly pokes fun at herself as we watch her learn about grace from unexpected sources.
A friend loaned me this book and told me "read chapter 8." After reading the whole book, I bought 3 copies -- one for me and two to give away. I'll probably buy more.
A collection of stories  Sep 16, 2009
I wasn't crazy about this book. I was excited to read it, thinking all the wonderful things I would learn about grace. As a minister, I've heard a lot about grace, and agree strongly that it is everywhere, in everything. God covers us with grace, thanks be to God.

But I felt like that almost made this book too easy. Reading it felt like reading a loose collection of stories rather than a well put together book. I don't read many collections because I like books to have continuity. I didn't find that in this book. Each chapter was a new beginning.

It feels weird saying something bad about a book concerning grace, but I just felt like this book told a bunch of stories and then labeled the grace within them afterward. Maybe it's something we need to be doing in all of our lives, identifying the grace that covers us all, but I didn't think it made for compelling reading. It read more like a travelogue covering the authors journeys on safari in Africa, where seeing elephants is a gracious moment, than it did a book delving into a theology of grace.
Way above my expectations after hearing her talk about it on the radio.  Aug 28, 2009
I know what grace is. But I had never applied it to ordinary things. After my consciousness raising experience with Cathleen, I see that I live with grace daily, e.g. a parking space unexpected turns up, when I need to get home to make supper. Also, she quotes one of Rumi's poems that blew me away.
As a maker of books myself, it is beautifully designed and I enjoyed the color of the print.
I sent my copy to one of favorite friends when I finished it. After all, books are meant to be passed on, especially the good ones.
A rewakening  Jun 18, 2009
Like grace itself, I wasn't looking for a book like this. In fact, until recently, I've avoided most books on religion. Yet this delightful, soulful and penetrating work must've known I was looking for it. It enthralled me with the stories of her mother's breast cancer, the boy in Malawi with the hole in his heart and the brave women of Kenya. This book transcended religion by exploring the role that grace plays in our lives. How can we be reshaped by grace in the wake of disasters like Hurricane Katrina, the poverty and AIDS catastrophe of sub-Saharan Africa or daily travails? Unlike a host of religious writers, Ms. Falsani guides by example, gently and without a sermon. That is the living grace of her message. John F. Wasik, author "The Cul-de-Sac Syndrome" and "The Merchant of Power"
