Wretched Saints by Noel Jesse Heikkinen

A review by Mike Howell

In my continuing re-discovery and appreciation of God’s grace I recently read ‘Wretched Saints’ (Transformed by the Relentless Grace of God) a book by Noel Jesse Heikkinen. The back cover says – “God’s grace is not sanitised, sweet, or passive. It is gritty, gnarly, and it invades the crustiest parts of your soul… It powerfully changes your posture toward those who need grace as much as you do.”

In his book Heikkinen considers what he calls the ‘faulty sensors’ – the falsehoods many of us take on board in our lives and writes - “When you believe something about yourself that is contrary to what God says is true about you, you can know that your sensor is out of whack!”– yep, he’s an American!

He goes on to show how, because Jesus did not come for the healthy but for the sick, our awareness and admission of sin become a pathway to enjoying the grace and love of God. Where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more!

It’s a book written with deep biblical truth, skill and humour – I recommend it. (It’s also available as an E-Book for Kindle etc.)
