About Grace and Peace Radio

What is Grace and Peace Radio?

Grace and Peace Radio is a Christian living blog and podcast encouraging Christians in…

  • Their biblical worldview
  • Their commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ
  • And their active participation in the furtherance of His Kingdom through Great Commission living

Who are Anthony and Amy Russo?

We’re just a Christian couple who met and married in Florida and now call South Carolina home. We’ve both been Christians for over 15 years and have been married since 2007, which in itself is a testimony of God’s grace.

We are both certified biblical counselors with ACBC and IABC. We both enjoy reading and serving in church activities together.

You can read a bit more about my bio at Striving for Eternity, where GPR is hosted, and where I am one of the ministry’s speakers.

What Can You Expect?

The mission of GPR is to use the written and spoken word to tell people about Jesus Christ, in hopes that sinners repent and saints be encouraged, to the glory of God. To that end, here you’ll find engaging conversations about applying God’s Word to everyday life.

Who is Writing These Posts?

Unless otherwise noted, posts are written by me, Anthony Russo. Who am I? As the old saying goes, I’m a nobody trying to tell anybody about Somebody.

Jesus Changed My Life

That said, here’s what I wrote on an index card one time:

I really am what the Bible calls “Born Again”. I’m not who I was, my life and my heart are completely different. Selfishness, guilt, and shame were replaced with a genuine love for God and people. I am not who I was; Jesus changed my life. He can change yours, too. Don’t waste another day.

What Do I Believe?

I’m a born-again Christian holding to traditional positions on the triune God, the deity of Christ, salvation by faith alone in Christ alone, and the inspiration, inerrancy, and sufficiency of Scripture.

I generally agree with those who hold to The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, affirm the Baptist Faith & Message (2000), and the Westminster Confession, and those who otherwise fall under the umbrella of conservative evangelical Christianity.

I strongly oppose the word-faith prosperity movement and modern “easy-believism” Christianity that has become the hallmark of many churches.

Anything Else?

When not reading or writing, I also make a living as a IT project manager. I’ll never turn down a cup of coffee (“Got any dark roast?”) and when I’m feeling nostalgic I’ll listen to The Beatles. Curious about the photo above? That’s me on a mission trip to Uganda in 2019, one of the highlights of my life.

Oh, and opinions are my own (though I always aim for them to be derived from the Scriptures) and are not in any way affiliated with my employer, church, or any other person or organization. Oh, and I am not the Anthony Russo who hosts a Bible podcast and is part of the improv team of Isaac Air Freight. Same great name, but two different guys.
