I can't wait to read what he will write next.
Justin Buzzard
The author and Doctor of Doxological Dogma is scholastically erudite yet fascinatingly simple in his unpacking of Biblical truth.

I enjoyed every sentence of this book. I found myself quickly immersed in my brother's unfolding of the message of grace in the gospels. After finishing, my first thought was to donate the book to the library so that others could read it; but I decided to keep it on my shelves so that I can read it with my children when they are older. Thank you, Dane, for your labors in this book!

Dane Ortlund is a scholar and a gentleman. I met Dane about a year ago after some email correspondence and found him to be a man who truly lives under the radical truth he proclaims in this book. Defiant Grace helped me, and will help you, better appreciate, enjoy, and extend God's grace. Dane is a fantastic writer. I can't wait to read what he will write next.

It was such a joy to read Dane Ortlund's brief reflections on the grace of God in the gospel, seen most clearly in the portrayals of Jesus in the four Gospels! Fresh, winsome, insightful, this little book had me leaping for joy, as my affections for Jesus were stirred and enhanced. Several "aha!" moments combined with several exclamations of "amen!" as Dane's beautiful command of the English language combined with his careful handling of the Gospels as Scripture. God's grace is indeed counter-intuitive, unexpected, surprising, and Dane has provided great help for God's people to revel in God's wondrously "defiant grace"!

Format: Paperback
Dane Ortlund's "Defiant Grace" is a brief book that challenges and inspires those interested in knowing Jesus and understanding His mission.

Ortlund briefly sketches a surprising aspect of Jesus' ministry in each of the four Gospels. From the surprise of disobedient obedience in Matthew to the surprise of creator as creature in John, each chapter is filled with rich insights. I found myself bracketing and underlining sentences on page after page. Words are not wasted and rabbit trails are not chased in this book. Though it is only about 120 pages long, it is deserving of slow and thoughtful reading.

By JoabRico on February 10, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is deftly filled with Evangelical Potency!

It is Good News with Great Joy and Gracious Power
that exposes the nefarious disease of sin and the cure
of God's mercy and love!

The author and Doctor of Doxological Dogma is
scholastically erudite yet fascinatingly simple
in his unpacking of Biblical truth.

I found myself trapped and torn apart as the gospel
of Matthew dug the conscience and motives beneath
my motives out into the open in exposures of the
'secret sin' beneath my sins.

I am so much more thankful for God's love in Jesus
and the fullness of teaching that God has given to us
which says and Shows the extravagance of His love,
the glory of his person, the help available to sinners
and saints, and the fruit that may yet yield from a
Gospel-surrendered life!

And I do concur with Jared C. Wilson that the book
is saturated with some 'doxological whiskey' which
will result in delicious worship !

Ha Glo-Ray !

Great Job Dane !
