Grace is everywhere, all around us, all of the time. We only need the ears to hear it and the eyes to see it. It is much easier and perhaps more helpful to describe what grace feels like through stories and images that illustrate the varied ways grace is experienced when encountered in the wild, than it is to attempt to define it definitively, to trap it, and cage it. Maybe that's why Jesus was so fond of parables: nothing describes the indescribable like a memorable yarn.
Sin Boldly: A Field Guide for Grace is a collection of stories about the author's experiences with grace---in ridiculous moments and in those that seem trivial but are anything but; in wacky adventures and quiet walks; with family and with strangers; in bars, nightclubs, the occasional house of worship, and in her own home; and through conversations with people---some famous and some not---who have introduced her to grace in new ways that in turn have shaped her faith and the way she tries to live it.
