Book Recommendation

Miroslav Volf has written an easy-to-read book that is so relevant for the broken systems we inhabit.

Whether Hagar’s broken social system, Leah’s broken family system or Hannah’s broken religious system— the graces and disciplines of giving and forgiving are beautiful ways to respond in the Jesus way of being.
We are at our human best when we give and forgive. But we live in a world in which it makes little sense to do either one. In our increasingly graceless culture, where can we find the motivation to give? And how do we learn to forgive when forgiving seems counterintuitive or even futile?

A deeply personal yet profoundly thoughtful book, Free of Charge explores these questions—and the further questions to which they give rise—in light of God's generosity and Christ's sacrifice for us. Miroslav Volf draws from popular culture as well as from a wealth of literary and theological sources, weaving his rich reflections around the sturdy frame of Paul's vision of God's grace and Martin Luther's interpretation of that vision.
