Sermons of Grace collects forty-four sermons delivered by The Rev. John Zahl from the pulpit of Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC. With the help of pop-culture, humor, and plenty of personal illustrations, John leads readers through the church calendar year with reflections on the counter-intuitive reality of God in the midst of everyday life. Each short sermon offers a helpful point of re-orientation, bridging head with heart, and heart with the good news. Read them as a whole, or in devotional form; may you find yourself comforted and inspired by “the enabling word” of grace!

For as long as the Bible has been available, people have turned to it to address the problems and anxieties of everyday life. We look to it for comfort in the midst of suffering, clarity in times of confusion…or simply to learn about God. Thankfully, what we find in its pages is not ultimately a collection of rules or demands but a message of unbending honesty and unspeakable compassion: the gospel of Jesus Christ.
With humor and heart (and a surprising number of disco and B-movie references) the 365 short devotions in The Mockingbird Devotional carry the good news of God’s mercy and forgiveness to the inner-rooms of human reality.

What if God sees us the way a man sees a woman he is infatuated with, and His main question is not how to make us moral but rather how to get us to fall in love with Him?
In The Romance of Grace, Jim McNeely explores Bible passages that tell us what God really wants for us and what His love means. This is the love of a God who chose to give His life for ours, even carefully retaining His scars into the throne room of heaven and telling us in His very body, “I have gone to great lengths and great costs to say that I forsook all comforts for the love of you.”

“For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do — this I keep on doing.” So wrote St. Paul, a “useful sinner.”
On a winter day in 1990, J. David Hawkins was in the field, hunting with friends, suffering inner turmoil. Shortly he would be exposed as an adulterer, involved with the wife of his friend and employer. This is an absorbing true story of grace — of betrayal, trial, pain, forgiveness, and new life.

When it comes to grace, no one writes with more elegance, humor, and well, grace, than Robert Farrar Capon. Since his first publication hit shelves in 1963, Robert’s voice has served as one of the guiding lights for the Christian faith from generation to generation. Now, in one of his most intimate works, Robert welcomes readers young and old to join him at his home on Shelter Island, NY, for a series of reflections on the seasons and the nature of God’s divine love. Originally published in 1983, this slim, poetic volume offers some of the sweetest, most evergreen musings in the Capon canon. He begins, “If you are in the habit of associating resurrection only with spring, if you think of winter as somehow incompatible with rebirth–let me show you something…”

Drawing on the classic teaching of the atonement as it is presented by St. Paul and other Christian thinkers, Paul Zahl unfolds its meaning for this generation. He then applies it to the problems of spiritual malaise and meaninglessness, which afflict us today: problems of depression and despair, of loneliness, and of broken relationships. Throughout, the Good News of Christianity–forgiveness, reconciliation, new life–is presented in terms that contemporary readers can easily understand and apply to their lives.
