“Whether you have hit rock bottom or just want to appreciate what God has done in your life or if there is someone you know who needs to desperately hear about God’s free gift of grace, this book is definitely one to pick up, read, and share with those in need.”
Reviewer: Michael Boling (IntelMin.org)
Rating: 5 Stars

“The personal stories in the book will lift your spirits and give you a deep encouragement to live for what matters, honoring Christ in all of our lives.”
Reviewer: Spencer Cummins (spencerdeancummins.blogspot.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

“Story after gripping story you see how God’s grace abounds… Be prepared, at some point in this book you will face yourself whether you want to admit it or not.”
Reviewer: Laura Galindo (schelastic.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“I highly recommend this book for new Christians or those beginning the study of theology because it will help them to understand what theological terms mean without all the fancy and nuanced language of an academic minded systematic theology text.”
Reviewer: Dave Jenkins (ServantsOfGrace.org)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Red Like Blood reminds me of the woman in Luke 7… stories of people who love much because they’ve been forgiven much. I highly recommend this book. Read it and you will be greatly encouraged.”
Reviewer: Persis Lorenti (triedbyfire.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is aimed at both those who strayed from church & those who stayed in church. It is amazing the result of grace in the work of people who find themselves at the end of their rope, even if they are holding two different ropes.”
Reviewer: Louis Zinc (louiszinc.tumblr.com)
Rating: 3 Stars

“This book is awesome. I say that because it did what the authors fervently prayed that it would do… it drew me to worship my Savior and King, to praise Him as I read.”
Reviewer: Faith Farrell (foundachristianbyhisgrace.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

Red Like Blood by Joe Coffey and Bob Bevington is such a book that takes the grace of God and makes it practical through the lens of ones who have experienced such grace.”
Reviewer: Chris Land (keepingthemainthing.blogspot.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

“Packed full of emotion and also a little humor, it is a book to not only be read, but to be savored. I can not recommend this book too highly. It is well worth a read!”
Reviewer: Roger Leonhardt (reformedreader.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

Red Like Blood is worth reading. Take the time to do so; I think that you’ll be glad you did.”
Reviewer: Barry Simmons (journeymansfiles.blogspot.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

“This isn’t a grace as usual book . It takes you on a adventure of re-creation inside out. Just when you thought God couldn’t out do himself he does.”
Reviewer: Rosemary Swinehart (rmsdrummer.wordpress.com)
Rating: 3 Stars

“The book is deep, because the authors are obviously talking about grace, which can be confusing, glorious, breathtaking, mind-blowing, and of course, deep. If you want to read a real book about grace, and you can get past some of the “uncomfortably honest” stuff in the book, this is the book for you.”
Reviewer: Amanda Talbert (thetalbertreport.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“My faith was strengthened while reading this book. Suffering was addressed with such honesty, and yet hope. I found myself nearly feeling that Pastor Coffey and Mr. Bevington were my friends, because this book has been an integral part of my journey of understanding and accepting God’s grace. Plus, the book was written in such a ‘conversational’ style that I felt like I knew them through their experiences, and that they understood.”
Reviewer: Tory Blackmon (illustrated-queries.blogspot.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Some books are etched in your soul after the last page is read. Red Like Blood is such a book. ”
Reviewer: Heather Dannewitz (brokenathisfeet.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“When God went after Bob, the result was an explosion of grace which touched not just Bob’s life but many others, including that of his ex-wife… Red Like Blood has a very conversational, easy-to-read style. I know I’ve said it before in my book reviews but you really do feel as though you are listening to these stories from old friends over steaming mugs of tea and chocolate biscuits. At times I laughed, sometimes I cried. Above all, hope and faith grew in me that God can change even me by His wonderful grace.”
Reviewer: Mandy Johnson (mandybakerjohnson.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

Red Like Blood is a book that certainly lives up to its subtitle CONFRONTATIONS WITH GRACE. This book is loaded with stories that show the transforming power of the gospel and God’s far reaching grace to save sinners from every type of background. The stories are wonderful and leave the reader praising God for the testimony of those involved in the stories. The focus on God’s grace is on every page. I was truly blessed by the book and the power of the gospel that it shows.”
Reviewer: Joey Parker (parkerjreviews.blogspot.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

“No matter how many books you have read about grace you need to read this one as well.”
Reviewer: Jon Roberts (GoodReads.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“Blood is the life force in our body. Without it, we would not survive. The same is true about the blood of Jesus that runs through the Bible. Without it, life will not end in Heaven. Come explore the importance of the blood of Jesus.”
Reviewer: Donna Safford (bookworm56.blogspot.com)
Rating: 4 Stars

“I loved this book. It is not religious in the sense that it tells you how to do something. No, it is a collection of enjoyable stories that reveal something marvelous, something true. Grace will transform us if we let it. I highly recommend it.”
Reviewer: Beverly Terry (beverlylynnt.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

Red Like Blood: Confrontations With Grace is raw and sometimes brutal, but it’s real. It’s real-life situations where only true grace could prevail to overcome what may have turned into disastrous endings.”
