I know, I know, another book. Honestly, I’ve not read it yet, but I found out about Margot Starbuck through Andrew Marin. Her book Permission Granted looks great!
Excerpts from her book promo site: “Scouring the Gospels for the Jesus who felt as uncomfortable as she did around “disreputable” sinners, Margot was surprised to find no record of him there. And though she set out searching for a warm and fuzzy kind of “love,” she ended up encountering the person of Jesus in a way she’s not known him before. Permission Granted is a passionate and liberating call to believers to truly love sinners as Jesus does. With wit and clarity of insight, Margot shows readers that there are no “special sinners” who are worse or more deserving of contempt and judgment than others, and challenges them to a radical acceptance of sinners.” In other words, all of us!
And a great quote from the promo video below: “In fact, if we’re not in relationships that could earn us the stink-eye from the religious, we may not be patterning our lives after the guy we think we are…”
