I got more than I bargained for when I set out to read Red Like Blood. And I got less than what I bargained for. I anticipated atonement themes; cross-centered reflections on the person and work of Christ. I looked forward to warm-hearted, theologically informed writing that gloried in blood of Christ that cleanses people from their sin.

But I was in for a big surprise. This is not high-brow theology. This is not a Martyn Lloyd-Jones exposition. Rather, Joe Coffey and Bob Bevington write in a simple, earthy fashion - perhaps a bit too earthy for some. But they tell it like it is and they're quick to reveal the gory details.

Red Like Blood is about real life; life that is painful and filled with disappointment. Coffey and Bevington write from different perspectives, however both men are familiar with pain. Both men understand loss. Most important, they both understand grace. Bevington adds, "... We've both learned that the brokenness God allows is always merciful and purposeful - because it's designed to move our soul to a destination where we become more dependent on God alone." So God's grace not only proves to be purposeful - it is powerful and effective.

Red Like Blood is a powerful book that highlights the grace of God in sinful creatures. It should not be confused with a deep theological treatise - however it is a much needed reminder to sinners; it is a vivid reminder that sinners are in desperate need of grace.

I read a lot, mostly fiction, sometimes non-fiction, self-help Christian doctrine books. Seldom read biographical works. NOW, this book hands-down is one of the top two books I have read in the last five years. some of their stories punch you in the heart, some whack you on the back of the head, but they all draw you towards the Giver of a grace, Jesus, in the power of the Gospel. read this book if you want to see what real men who love and need Jesus live like, without pretense. You may think all Christians are like the elder brother in the parable of the Prodigal Son. Well, this book will show you that is not the case when you let Jesus into your heart all the way , and see what He can do to your life. What a joy and relief to know that I can be real, let God lead, and let Him probe into my life. It can be really good. Really good.

These two writers share their experiences openly, honestly and authentically. They hold nothing back...and like all those who have experienced the power of God's grace in God's Word, they are willing to tell on themselves, to share their own journey of failures, addictions, struggles - showing that growing into God's grace is a process that takes place, over time in the context of caring, Christ-centered relationships...and how this can overcome the deepest level of sin and selfishness, to bring healing and freedom into the brokenness of life. Freedom never comes from hiding our stories, but from opening our hearts and stories to the cleansing power of God's grace. And like the title of the book tells us, grace will confront us with the powerful love of God and His forgiveness, as well as our selfishness and sinfulness, and how we hurt others because of that.

One of the people recommending the book makes the following comment: "So much of what purports to be Christianity fails to be real. It is faux Christianity: man-centered, self-atoning, conscience-easing religious therapy for those who don't want to feel needy or broken. Red Like Blood is real.

Through the humble stories of two uncomfortably honest men you'll see the depths of your own need and you'll celebrate the Savior who meets, forgives and transforms you too."

Here are some powerful quotes from the book itself:

"Almost everyone I know is hiding in one way or another but Bob [one of the co-authors] has been outed… The rest of us all long to be known but just can’t must the courage to out ourselves…

I long for the experience of being loved and yet all I give is the image of myself I hope others will find most attractive. The love I feel from others is muted at best, simply because I know that the person they love is not the person I am. Inside of me are smaller and smaller me’s until there is one that is so small and homely that it never feels the love it craves. I merely pretend to be me so I can pretend to be loved, and I starve....

Brokenness is a constant in God’s formulas. Our brokenness forms the cracks through which grace flows in and joy pours out. Learning the Math of God involves embracing brokenness the way he does. It involves a collision between his grace and our brokenness....

Grace is not solid. It flows. But grace does need one thing. It needs cracks. The bigger the crack, the deeper grace will penetrate. A soul with no cracks is like a piece of marble. Grace runs off but never gets in."

For anyone interested in real Christianity that moves into your heart, your mind, your soul, your relationship, your shame and your addictions - for the purpose of healing you and setting you free....this book is a must read.

This book was good. However, I don't think that using vulgarity to make a book seem more real, or to shock, or to be just so cool is necessary or desirable. To me it was distracting and when I read an inspirational book, I would like to respect the author. Saying "my dad got laid" or about "worshipping dicks" just doesn't seem to me like something the Lord would say. I found that offensive and juvenile.

This book helps you to read about someone who is so filled with grace, but struggled from difficult sin. As he stated, he is the prodigal son and it helps to refocus your journey. His life was once consumed with addictions, but he found his way to God and shared that thoroughly. The words of this book are encouraging an thought-provoking in an eloquent story through Joe, a pastor, and Bob, the prodigal son. It's an easy and entertaining read on the grace of God. Very recommended!

I didn't enjoy this at all. Were they trying to copy the Blue Like... movie? It's starts out talking about one Pastor's affair and how he rose out of the ashes with his new wife. Good for him, but I'd like his ex'es take on life at that time. It goes down hill from there. Does this sound judgemental? It isn't meant to. There is a huge need for for compassion in the Church today. This book just read arrogantly for me. I hear more and more pastor's using vulgarities from the pulpit, trying to reach a more modern world, and basically saying "can't we all just get along"... I don't know, this book didn't carry me and I didn't enjoy it. It was shallow and just plain stupid in some parts. Glad others got something out of it. I did not. And certainly not Grace.
