Publisher's Summary

Pastor and writer Rich Wilkerson Jr. shines a spotlight on every Christian's calling to reach the world, seek the lost, and save sinners with Jesus' scandalous message of the gospel of grace.

The Bible calls Jesus a friend of sinners. What does that mean? In Friend of Sinners, Rich Wilkerson Jr. shows listeners the profound implications of the reality that Jesus calls us friends not because of who we are or what we have done but because of who he is. While he was on earth, he knew that people needed to belong before they would want to behave. He understood that the power within him was greater than the darkness around him, so he loved fearlessly.

By following his example, we can have the same clear conviction and compassion for the lost that he did. His gospel of scandalous grace cannot be overestimated. When we embrace the truth that we all need Jesus equally, and when we trust him to bring transformation in people's hearts, we will walk as Jesus walked, experiencing the glory of God in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

Hits you where you live

Meets you right in the middle of where ever you are and demands that you question how well you really understand the person of Jesus. Awesome read, would highly recommend.

That will Preach!

Everyone should read or listen to this book, but Christians especially should. So many times we are so busy and caught up in our Holy Huddles, busy with doing things that are indeed important when serving the Lord, that we have forgotten the fundamental truth of the gospel: Jesus died for the ungodly. This book has opened my eyes forever to what it means to love as Jesus loved, and I will never be able to un-see it.

Incredible Perspective Reset

This book aligns or realigns the perspective of anyone who calls themself Christian to remember what (and who) Jesus came for. Rich Wilkerson Jr. explains quite plainly how to follow the simple command given to all believers, and how to avoid being that “weird Christian”. An instant favorite, and a great easy yet direct read.

Incredible - must read for all Christians

This book was incredible. It seems like such basic stuff and yet I have been so challenged by this book that I will need to go through it again. This book is definitely much needed in today's world. Thank you for writing it Rich.
