Valor Christian College Founder
Here at the Valor Christian College library, we take pride in stocking multiple copies of the books that Pastor Rod Parsley and his wife Joni Parsley have written. You can find copies of these books on the bookshelves, as well as on special displays in the library. We strongly encourage you to take time to read them.
Here on the library website, we will be featuring one of Pastor or Joni’s books periodically. Here is the currently featured book:
Today’s Church is torn in their understanding of God’s grace. Some churches measure holiness by the length of hems, cuffs, and other man-made regulations. Other churches use God’s grace as a license to disregard the Bible’s teachings on holy living and, consequently, live a life of rebellion. Neither extreme is biblical.
It’s true that Christians are freed from the rule of the law. Yet it is also true that the law is a revelation of God’s will. How can we lead godly lives and also avoid turning moral absolutes into a legalistic system for salvation? In Grace, Dr. Rod Parsley uncovers the tension surrounding conversations about grace so that you can:
We aren’t trying to win a debate. We aren’t talking about what we are free to do and what we are free not to do. We are all undeserving. Uncovering the truth about grace means preparing yourself for the presence of God around you. Learn how to govern your ways so the glory of God may reside within you.
- Gain biblical foundation of God’s true intention for law and grace
- Live more powerfully by avoiding destructive extremes
- Adopt principles for Christian living that come from Scripture and the work of the Holy Spirit in your heart
- Understand moments in church history when these issues threatened to destroy faith, formed new doctrines and denominations, and more
