Marci Preheim

Marci is a married mother of two and lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Her husband Arnie put her through college at the ripe old age of 30 since she squandered her youth on wild living in the far country. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Middle Tennessee State University but she considers herself more of a theology nerd. She was a women’s Bible study teacher at Community Bible Church in Nashville, Tennessee, for many years. During that time she also led a monthly chapel service for women at the Nashville Rescue Mission (the Hope Center, for recovering addicts) and has been a guest speaker for women’s events and retreats. After a season of illness, she turned to writing.

Marci’s passion is to talk to people and write about the power of the gospel as it applies to our everyday lives—to be freed from legalism that we are so easily drawn to and the fear of man that blinds us to what true righteousness is. “The righteous will live by faith” (Romans 1:17). She is the author of Grace is Free: One Woman’s Journey From Fundamentalism to Failure to Faith, and two Bible study guides: But He Gives Us More Grace: A Study in the Book of James and At His Feet: A Guided Study Through the Gospel of John.

Just like the unfaithful husband who brings flowers to his wife, external deeds done to assuage a guilty conscience, or to justify oneself, are the epitome of hypocrisy.
