    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 My wife and I were doing our best to live our lives and raise our children in accordance with God s direction as expressed in His word We attended a sound, Bible teaching church, had great Christian friends and strong support, were engaged in serving Him in our work, our home, and in our church Even better, it seemed the entire area was steeped with pe 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 My wife and I were doing our best to live our lives and raise our children in accordance with God s direction as expressed in His word We attended a sound, Bible teaching church, had great Christian friends and strong support, were engaged in serving Him in our work, our home, and in our church Even better, it seemed the entire area was steeped with people who pretty much thought, believed, and acted as we did I thought what a great place to raise our children through the teen years and into adulthood.Then the bottom fell out My job came to an unexpected and inglorious end I wondered why hadn t I been diligently serving God in my job as I understood He wanted me to Hadn t I been growing in grace, leading in the community, modeling Christlike behavior at my work and in my home and church What had I done wrong or failed to do But then it got eveninteresting Another relocation was clearly on our horizon I applied for jobs in New York, Maryland, Tennessee, Washington state, and Washington DC But none were the right fit for various reasons Then, I was offered a job the only job I would be offered in Sin City As I proceeded through the site visits, the interviewing process, and evaluating the final offer it soon became clear that God was leading us to Las Vegas, Nevada I remember asking God, and engaging our small group to ask Him with me God, am I hearing You right You want me to be a Godly husband and father, to provide for my family and live my life accordingly to Your word You want me to teach my children to know You and to pray they might embrace Your love as well And now I m supposed to move us all from the Bible belt to Sin City Really Well, here we are Ten years later and I m still shaking my head During that decade God has brought or allowedpersonal testing, growth, pain, and finally joy and peace, that I could have imagined And I have found Him to be completely faithful and sufficient He has dealt with longstanding weaknesses in my life that I had almost despaired of ever being relieved of and He did it in Sin City So I related easily to this book by Pastor Jud Wilhite, senior pastor of the very large and successful Central Christian Church in the Las Vegas valley He describes a similar odyssey for he and his family A Pastor in Las Vegas Huh In the book He describes real stories of changed lives here in Las Vegas, examples of God demonstrating His power in one of the most unlikely areas and in some of the most unlikely lives a drug addict, dancers in topless or nude shows, very successful businessmen, a homosexual I have friends from our old town that to this day refuse to visit Las Vegas because of its reputation But as I read the book and compared it with my own experience here I was reminded that Jesus didn t avoid the less reputable areas and people of His time I guess one could say that Samaria in Jesus day was roughly equivalent in reputation at least to the religious establishment of the day as Las Vegas is to the conservative Christian establishment in 2014.I am so thankful that God sent pastors like Jud Wilhite, Michael Rochelle, Kevin Odor, and others to the Las Vegas valley I m thankful that He cared enough about the people here to do so I m thankful to be a small part of His team here in the valley And I m thankful that books like this one exist to tell the rest of the story about Las Vegas Check it out

    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.
