“Uncensored grace is what you get from a loving God when all the religious types have gone home, and every last hope for your own effort has blown up in your face.”

What comes to mind first when you think “Las Vegas”? Maybe glitz and glam. Or dealers and dancers, high rollers and hell raisers. And why not? After all, the town they call Sin City is an American icon, an anyth

Excellent read. The last three chapters of the book were my favorite. If I ever get out to Vegas I would love to visit Jud's church. Excellent recount of stories and really great detail. The theme of the book is grace and we all need to learn how to give it since we demand so much of it from others.

Ten years ago my wife, children, and I were living in the southern Midwest, in a town frequently referred to as "the buckle of the Bible belt".

Even better, it seemed the entire area was steeped with pe ...more

I LOVE this book. Almost makes me want to move to Vegas after so long of thinking I'd never even set foot there again.
This book renames "Sin City" as "Grace City" and very well so. Written by a conservative Christian, the pastor of Central Christian Church in Las Vegas.
Many stories of changed lives through the power of God's love and grace.
I cried a lot.

Book is a great collection of heart tugging true stories told by a Preacher of Central Church located in Las Vegas. Each Chapter provoked thought and brought many questions to mind in regards to my faith.

It's the same book as Uncensored Grace, which I just read. Still an awesome book.

There are people in Las Vegas who have problems, other than addiction to gambling. There is hope for anyone!

“I choose to suppress the initial categories I want to put people in - rich, poor, together, not together, druggie, yuppie, rocker, loser, winner, cool, uncool. I choose to remember that I don't know their struggle or their pain. I choose to err on the side of grace because someday I'll stand before God, and I pray He'll err on the side of grace with me.” 10 likes
