welcome to Christ's By Grace

Welcome to Christ’s by Grace, my home on the web. If you walked into my physical home, you would notice a couple of things. First, it is furnished in what might be called Late Century Consignment Store. Second, there are lots of books. We have fiction and non-fiction, books from every age, for every age.

So, in welcoming you to Christ’s by Grace, I want to make it clear that the Bible is the source from which its content flows. Like the consignment store furnishings in my home, the posts may borrow from memories, old and new. However, my primary aim is that the Scriptures would bring clarity, joy, and comfort as they unfold the amazing truths of the gospel. “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Cor. 1:18).
