Item Description...
Overview
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.

Publishers Description
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."
-Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life

Reviews - What do our customers think?
great book  May 30, 2008
Jud's look at how faith and God are moving in Las Vegas is truly fantastic. When we moved here several years ago, we were not sure if we would be able to find a faith community and church to be a part of. Turns out that faith, God and christianity is actually discussed more openly here than in California where we came from. I highly recommend Jud's book to get a good look at what he terms not "sin City' but "grace City". As the bible says, where sin abounds, grace abounds even more.
 
A gift for yourself and others to read!  Aug 1, 2007
I loved this book so much, I bought 10 more copies for friends, then bought another one of his books! Ive never done that before. Great stories from people living in LV, where I lived 28 yrs.I worked with, and knew Henry, the story of whom is also in the book towards the end. Great chapters, but so are all the others! Great job Jud! I went to Canyonridge, the sister church of Central, great churches, great people, I go back and see them when Im in town! Great book, to read and to share, with "the message" very clear.
 
AWESOME!!!  Apr 9, 2007
This is a great book, easy to read and hard to put down. The stories are life-changing and touching, wonderful job, Jud and Bill. Watch out world, "What happens in Vegas, is changing the world!"
 
What Happens in Vegas Doesn't have to Stay in Vegas!  Apr 4, 2007
You the know the commercial - "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." A great marketing campaign promoting you to come to sin city and indulge your wildest fancies, because who will know? I'm glad Pastor Jud didn't buy into this with the stories of gospel-renewed lives he has witnessed living in one of America's most notorious cities. What I love about this book is that it showed me how often I write off people because I feel they are beyond hope. This book shows that God's love in Christ can penetrate deeper than our deepest sins, and this has given me a lot of courage and compassion to view others as Jesus views them - with love and forgiveness...and of course, grace. Check this book out. It'll do your heart some good.
 
Grace city in Las Vegas  Mar 31, 2007
This is an awesome book about real people in Las Vegas who find Gods amazing grace...the stories are very touching and inspirational. I recommend it for all of us who live in Las Vegas and those who know of our city to gain an understanding of some real people who find hope and love the Lord here!

“Uncensored grace is what you get from a loving God when all the religious types have gone home, and every last hope for your own effort has blown up in your face.”

What comes to mind first when you think “Las Vegas”? Maybe glitz and glam. Or dealers and dancers, high rollers and hell raisers. And why not? After all, the town they call Sin City is an American icon, an anything-goes shrine to pleasure, money, sex–and another lucky roll of the dice.

Probably when you think Las Vegas, you don’t think about God or grace.
