Jesus Sat Down: Preaching Grace as Motivation Toward Redemptive Change
Author

Abstract
Congregations sometimes fall short of making personal change and working for social change within their communities as robustly as their preachers think they should. Preaching grace can lead congregations, even those that may be theologically conservative, to be motivated as individuals and corporately to experience the type of transformation that comes from God which is representative of redemptive change. This work offers a model of preaching as the proclamation of good news that offers divine grace as the source of redemptive change in individuals and the community.
