New Residence Program Managers

Greco Family

Gutenberg welcomes Gil and Erin Greco as the new Residence Program house managers. Most recently, Gil and Erin hail from Kansas City, Missouri, where they have lived since 2013. While there, Gil taught at a Classical Christian high school, Erin started a photography business, and they had their two boys, Wendell (3) and Linford (10 months). Before that, Gil and Erin lived in Eugene, Oregon, where they both graduated from Gutenberg College in 2012 and 2010, respectively. They met in the Residence Program at Gutenberg College in 2008 and lived there until their marriage in 2010. Gil and Erin are excited to give back to the community that they were so thankful to be a part of.

“Righteous Sinners” Now an E-book

RS_Final“This book was born twenty-five years ago on a very bad night. As a young Christian (I converted at nineteen) I struggled greatly with the sin that was all too noticeable in my life. Some of my teachers at the time believed in the “victorious Christian life” theology. Victory over sin was mine, they taught, if I would just walk by the Spirit, if I would just “let go and let God.” I tried, with all the faith I could muster, to do just that. It didn’t seem to work. However I tried to “let go,” I found myself just as much a prisoner of selfishness and lust as I was before. One night—the bad night—I confessed this frankly to one of our leaders and asked for help. His answer changed my life.”

Thus begins the introduction to Righteous Sinners by Gutenberg tutor Ron Julian. Originally published in 1998 by NavPress, Righteous Sinners is now available as an e-book from Gutenberg College Press at Amazon.com.

J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology at Regent College,  commends the book: “Biblically exact and pastorally profound, this book is a gem!”

Paperback copies of the original book are also available from Gutenberg College.
