Probably when you think Las Vegas, you don?t think about God or grace.
Neither did Jud Wilhite when he was first invited to become the senior pastor at the city?s largest church. But the people he?s met since moving there with his family have changed all that. Today, Vegas stands for something much different and more surprising for Jud. He doesn?t think of Vegas as Sin City anymore. Now, to him, it is Grace City.
Working with veteran journalist Bill Taaffe, Jud takes you past the neon and the hype to another side of Vegas?where people whose lives have been marred by loneliness, addiction, and despair are finding hope and freedom in a vital community of faith. Stripped is an account of what happens when ordinary people get honest with each other and an extraordinary God. In its pages you?ll meet gaming industry movers and shakers. You?ll meet working exotic dancers, a Flying Elvis, an American Idol contestant, a cop who won the hearts of a crime-hardened city, and more.
Each of them has encountered what Jud calls ?uncensored grace.? He writes, ?Uncensored means that there is no formula or membership or performance that stands between you and God?s goodness.?
Stripped is their unforgettable account of people who are betting everything on a very big idea: that as wide and deep and high as your mountain of personal ruin might get, God?s transforming grace is always wider and deeper and higher.
Behind the glitz and glam of Sin City, an amazing story is unfolding. It's a story of people who have run out of dreams, given up on hope. It's a story of what can happen when Christians open their arms wide-really wide-in the name of Christ.
In "Uncensored Grace," Jud Wilhite and Bill Taaffe introduce you to card players, exotic dancers, a flying Elvis, an "American Idol" contestant, and a beat cop turned hero, among others. Each has one thing in common-at their moment of extreme need they encounter an extraordinary God. And the place they find him is in an unusual church community that is gambling everything on a hope-filled message they call "uncensored grace."
Writes Jud, "As a pastor, I completely misjudged what grace could look like in my world. Sure, I believed in a God who passionately pursues every human being, no matter how beat up or broken. I believed, but not enough. Not nearly."
Welcome to the streets of Vegas. What happens here could change your life.
"In "Uncensored Grace, "Jud Wilhite describes the life-changing power of God's forgiveness as it's encountered on the streets of Vegas. Wherever lives hurt, God's grace is present with more than enough power to heal."
