Grace In Practice

Dr. Paul Zahl, pictured here with his wife Mary, is Rector of All Saints Episcopal Church near Washington, D.C., and author of, among others, Grace In Practice: A Theology of Everyday Life, concerning which one reviewer notes, "Cascading pop-culture references are flanked with the profoundest of insights." I am enjoying this book immensely and wish to draw further attention to it. Although I surpass Paul in memorized lyrics of 60s oldies, which is a considerable accomplishment in its way, he greatly helps me understand the grace of God in Jesus, which is the [definite article] comfort and treasure of life.

I thank the Lord for this man, yet another precious gift to his Church.
