The Depth of Grace

When facing the deep realities of the human condition, we often turn to Scripture and the power of the gospel. It confronts us with the truth of God’s grace. This rich collection of thoughtful sermons from one of the leading contemporary theologians is challenging, stimulating, and inspiring. These reflections, born from years of theological and biblical study, demonstrate the complexity of the realities we face in the Christian life and the depth of the grace of God. Superbly written and thoroughly accessible, Confronted by Grace points us toward Christ so that we may grow in our understanding of the truth of the gospel.

Praise for Confronted by Grace

It’s one thing to teach the truth, and something else to proclaim it, not only interpreting Scripture but finding yourself and your hearers interpreted by it. That is what happens in reading these sermons: one forgets the preacher and hears Christ. John Webster believes ‘...that growth in the Christian life is simply growth in seeing that the gospel is true.’ Reading these sermons, I found myself joining in his joyful ‘Amen!’ to all of the promises that we have in Jesus Christ. What could be more rewarding than that?

—Michael Horton, Prof. of Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

John Webster displays a great sense of the power of the English language and an even greater sense of the reliability of Holy Scripture and the power of the gospel. Together these make compelling and inspiring reading.

—Graeme Goldsworthy, ThM, PhD, Union Theological Seminary
