Dirty God - Book Review

When I first received this book in the mail, my husband looked at me and thought it was a book of blasphemy. Who could blame him with the title and the cover. Then the subtitle: Jesus in the Trenches - it was now, "OH! Well that makes sense." The book was engaging and I appreciated the way that Johnnie vividly paints pictures of his travels and encounters with people that God has placed in his path. Dirty God is not for the faint of heart or anyone that desires to follow a blond hair blue-eyed Jesus that sits on a palatial throne separated from the messiness of life. This book is for someone that wants to dive in and truly wrestle with the idea of grace and what it looks like on a daily basis. I received this book from BookSneeze for my honest review and opinion.
