Johnnie Moore's Call to the Trenches

Dirty God

Dirty God strips away the veneer of the picture book Jesus and begins to unpack what he really would have been like. Johnnie Moore’s conclusion is not a clean cut, pristine man but a carpenter with dirt under his finger nails and a willingness to reach down into the mud to bring grace to all.

When I first saw the gritty and evocative front cover of Dirty God I couldn't wait to read it, here was a book that was designed to provoke a reaction. There is no doubt that this book stands out from the crowd it’s an extremely challenging read on the subject of grace. It’s not an easy pick it up, charge through then stick it back on the shelf kind of book but one that will knock you for six and make you sit up and think.


Grace can be hard and uncomfortable…Grace stands up for truth when people don’t want to hear it, and grace stands in the gap for those who haven’t a voice.

If you’re looking for a book that will give you a renewed perspective on the astounding nature of grace and what that looks like for those who accept it then don’t miss this hard-hitting message .

In Dirty God I’m imagining what could happen if a billion Christians began to scatter grace to the ends of the earth...I'm imagining a world where Christians are known by the grace they've received from Jesus and the grace that they in turn have reinvested in the world because of Him.'

 

For those of you who aren't familiar with Johnnie Moore he is an author, pastor, professor and vice president of Liberty University one of the world’s largest universities – over 92,000 students! He’s a key speaker at college student events and author of Honestly and has a host of well known friends. But despite many accolades there is more to Mr Moore than his connections. Johnnie’s style of writing is knowledgeable, wise and honest.  His message is illustrated and demonstrated through his many stories taken from his extensive travels to the farthest corners of the world seeing some of this planet’s most needy places coupled with direct application and exposition of God's Word.

Dirty God is all about joining Jesus in the trenches. Moore is not just writing for the individual believer but is also appealing to the Church as a whole.


‘The answer to all the problems of the world is the awakening of the people of God to care enough about those problems to actually do something about them.’

If you aren’t moved to make a change then you need to re-read this book. Moore leaves you with plenty of food for thought and clear instructions that should you choose to take could very well change your life.
This is the moment in which you will decide. Will you simply shelve what you’ve read? Or will you decide to close the book, look honestly at yourself in the mirror, and decide what could happen in your life if you decided to become, fully, a person of grace?’
