T. A. Herring


T. A. Herring grew up in Texas in a moderate, grace-filled Disciples of Christ church in the 1950s and 60s. Youthful arguments with his numerous Southern Baptist friends over whether predestination and the rapture were true was an early awakening to the differences in views about God held by more conservative Christians. However, these arguments were soon forgotten as the author entered the secular adult world of raising a family and pursuing a career in the emerging software industry of the 1970s.

After more than 30 years of not thinking much about these issues, and a successful career in the business of startup software companies, the author's attention was drawn back to them by what could only be described as a God-inspired collision between a personal hunger for greater meaning to life, an intimate friendship with two conservative Christian brothers who rekindled these arguments about God's grace, and a very special and eye-opening book, If Grace Is True: Why God Will Save Every Person. The author was astonished at the assertion that this notion of "universal salvation" was not some new age theology, but had apparently been a vital part, perhaps even the major part, of the early Christian faith all the way back to Jesus himself. This collision launched the author on a rigorous 8-year investigation of the origins of this incredible notion about God's seemingly limitless grace and how it could have escaped serious examination not only by him, but also by much of the Christian world for 2000 years. Scandalous Grace is the result of the author's exhaustive search for the truth about God's love, mercy, forgiveness and grace.
