Dirty God: Jesus in the Trenches

Grace explained is helpful, but grace experienced changes everything.

In Dirty God, Johnnie Moore does more than explain grace. Through his powerful and personal examples he helps the reader experience grace.

He tells us that Jesus is the author of grace. But he reminds us that the Jesus of the Bible isn’t the freshly showered, manicured Jesus of popular culture. Jesus, he says, “didn’t float down to planet earth like a deflating balloon. He dropped down like an atom bomb, and his very presence was a provocation.”

Jesus got dirty, from head-to-toe, as he fulfilled his mission of making a messy world clean. He smelled of sweat and soil. He had dirt under his fingernails, and calluses on his hands.

Why? He is so kind that he didn’t expect us to try to climb up to him. He climbed down to us to bring us back to God. This book chronicles again that story, and it reminds us that grace is both gotten and given. Jesus invites you to join him in the trenches.
