    1. I purchased Scot Mcknight's book, "Embracing Grace - A Gospel for All of Us because I read, "the Jesus Creed" about loving God and loving your neighbor. What does Loving God with all of your strength look like and what does Good News look like to your neighbor? "Embracing Grace" gives you some practical glimpses. It also gives some ideas of what the Kingdom of God looks like when we are "embracing grace". Scot writes with fresh metaphors that allow the Gospel to be seen in new ways. His chapter [...]

    2. Let me start off by saying that I think McKnight is one of the most brilliant minds I have ever read and part of his brilliance is his ability to take something complex and make it very readable and understandable. He is a professor and scholar which makes this accomplishment all the greater. This book was good, not as good or as impressive as some of his other works but very good nonetheless.Basically, he states that the Gospel is: “the work of God, in the context of a community, to restore E [...]

    3. A good book, and much better than his The Blue Parakeet. It still suffers from the same poor metaphors, but they are few and far between for the most part. There isn't a whole lot of spectacularly new observations here and it felt a lot like a retread of McKnight's other books. Nevertheless, there are some fresh observations, and McKnight's focus on theology as an outward-focused discipline that leads to right action, rather than "something that happened to me once" is very refreshing. "The gosp [...]

    4. Fantastic re-imaging of the Gospel. McKnight displays a great case for a holistic understanding of Christ's Kingdom that invades every area of our life and reunites us to God, reunites us to his creation, reunites us to others, and reunites us to ourselves. He includes an overview of atonement stories and how they all have something to say for the Christian experience. Generally, he expands the Kingdom to include all of us matter how broken or together we may appear, there's space for us in the [...]

    5. Book talks about how the gospel is about a lot more than penal substitution (Jesus dying on the cross for our sins that we may have eternal life). Beginning of book is good but then half way through you wonder where he is going - I think he was just trying to explain more facets of the gospel. I would actually recommend finding his talk on this on the internet and listening to it - in this case you wouldn't need to buy this. Even though the book is only okay, he does make an excellent point.

    6. This book discusses our embracing grace and what it means to the gospel. McKnight defines the gospel as:- It is the work of God, in the context of community, to restore us to union with God and communion for the good of others and the world.The book stresses the community aspect of this (rightly so) and contends that individualism is the biggest obstacle to the gospel of embracing grace.The book is short and is a fairly quick read.

    7. I appreciated McKnight's holistic and comprehensive view of a Big Gospel that goes way beyond a narrow understanding of the Gospel simply for the salvation of the individual soul.

    8. Underwhelming. This book had a promising title, but the writing was vague, undirected and repetitive. The best parts where were he just quoted other works, like the Book of Common Prayer.

    9. Good read on what the Gospel is and how it's lived out in cracked Eikons (God's image) because of God's grace.
