Full Product Description
‘Permission Granted’ is a honest and challenging examination of the Jesus we find in the Gospels – does the Jesus who walked the earth 2000 years ago match up with his followers and their actions today?
Have you ever looked at the church and thought: ‘I wonder want Jesus would have to say about this?’ If so, this is book is for you. That’s the question Margot Starbuck found herself pondering when she saw the church wielding signs on street corners and identifying certain people as ‘special sinners’.
This book is her journey to find answers in the Gospels. She looks towards Jesus, and his actions and behavior around the people most Christians wouldn’t touch with a badge pole. What she discovered was a kind of grace that wouldn’t look from the outside in, but be welcomed into their homes and lives. Jesus embodied an authentic and infectious love, and Margot wants to challenge you to join him.
Margot Starbuck is fast becoming a stand-out voice in the American Evangelical circles. Read her passionate calling to practice radical acceptance, taking off judgment and contempt and clothing yourself in love.

When she got the feeling that authentic love for those identified by the church as "Special Sinners" looked diametrically different than Christians in the media spotlight made it appear, Margot Starbuck went looking for the truth. Scouring the Gospels for the Jesus who felt as uncomfortable as she did around disreputable sinners, Margot was surprised to find no record of him there. Instead, she found the kind of grace that would actually be received by those in bars, in strip clubs, and at drag queen bingo.
Permission Granted is her passionate and liberating call to all of us to truly love others as Jesus does. With wit and clarity of insight, Starbuck shows that there are no "Special Sinners" who are worse or more deserving of contempt and judgment than others, and challenges us to a radical acceptance of the ones God loves and receives.
“This is a love story. Margot dares you, provokes you, woos you to imagine the limitless power of grace. On every page you hear the whisper of God's love, and you are invited to become that whisper to the world.” – Shane Claiborne, activist, author, lover
“Margot Starbuck has done it again. With humor, honesty, and grace, she identifies a central problem within evangelical Christianity and she offers an invitation to the way of Jesus, the way of truth and grace.” – Amy Julia Becker, author of ‘A Good and Perfect Gift’
“I love [this book] not just for its message of authentically reclaiming how Jesus would love and engage today's world, but more so because I know Margot lives out exactly what she writes… Please read Permission Granted and let it compel you, as it did me, to love in the tension that exists all around us.” – Andrew Marin, author of the award-winning book ‘Love Is an Orientation’
“In her book Permission Granted Margot Starbuck writes about the 'Rare Religious'--Christians who love sinners well. Since Jesus was called a 'friend of sinners' and we claim to follow him, loving sinners shouldn't be rare. Unfortunately, it is. And that's why this book is a necessary challenge that we Christ-followers need.” – Vince Antonucci, pastor of Verve Church, Las Vegas; author of ‘Renegade’
“Living out the Great Commandment requires embracing a counter-cultural lifestyle. With this book, Margot Starbuck offers specific directives and a host of wonderful stories to back up her message that Christlike loving is not only at the heart of this lifestyle but is the basis of meaningful living.” – Tony Campolo, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Eastern University
