I always enjoy doing the Wednesday Bookmark interviews on CHRI 99.1 FM in Ottawa. Why? Simple: it’s quick and to the punch. All the fat is trimmed and everything is boiled down to the essentials. This time out we discuss my most recent book, What’s So Confusing About Grace?

Dan Wilkinson at the blog Unfundamentalist Christians just posted a great review of What’s So Confusing About Grace? Here are a couple excerpts: “Equal parts humorous, sobering, and thought-provoking, Rauser explores the big issues of Christianity by honestly recounting the often self-deprecating anecdotes of his youth.” “Rauser readily admits when he doesn’t have the answers, and good-naturedly pokes at […]
Here’s a fine review of What’s So Confusing About Grace? courtesy of Michael. And here’s an excerpt: “Randal’s retrospective is warm, funny (laugh out loud funny in places – see for example his sidebar on faking how to speak in tongues p. 156), sincere, and graciously kind. And he takes his earnest, childhood faith and uses it […]
The first review was posted by David Haitel at Amazon.ca. David writes: “I appreciate Dr. Rauser’s readable and conversational style as well as his strong affirmation of the truth of God’s Word. He clearly outlines the beauty, simplicity, and richness of God’s grace. Christ’s love is truly at the center of His grace. Excellent and […]
