Grace by Max Lucado

Back Cover: We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeals prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.

When asked, "Do you believe in grace?" who can say no?

Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses of grace?

God's grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it.

Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

Let's make certain grace gets you.

Review: WOW. Seriously, WOW. I loved this book. I read it through cover to cover over a couple of days, and now I'm reading it again with highlighter and note-book in hand. There is so much information in this book, and Max's way of communicating is so easy to understand and fascinating to read. I have never read a 'faith building' book that is so spellbinding. I learnt a lot reading this book and it has given me many things to think about. I will certainly be recommending this book and I am actually hoping to use it in my Bible study group.
