BOOK REVIEW: GRACE, More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine

By:  Max Lucado
Published by:  Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2012

If you have never read a book by Mr. Lucado you are missing a real treat.  He does not lecture, talk over your head, and is not dry or boring.  In fact, when I read a book by Mr. Lucado I feel as if he is sitting in my living room sharing a cup of coffee with me.  We are friends, and he values my opinions but is not afraid to share his own from the Bible.  Plus he has a very fine sense of humor, and is excellent at explaining things. 

Such is the case in this new book called simply "Grace."  Herein he gives the Biblical account of grace -- what it is and what it is not.  He presents it in a manner a child could understand, while at the same time being intellectually stimulating.   Some moments are just "a-ha" moments, why didn't I think of it that way before? 

To me, grace is a beautiful word.  One of my favorite words.  Because of grace, I have the greatest gift imaginable which is an eternity in heaven with God.  All because of grace.  And what is grace?  Simply a GIFT I can choose to receive or reject, based on the precious gift of God's only Son Jesus' death on the cross, taking my sins and graciously covering them with His blood.  Grace is not earned. 

Find out much more in the eleven short chapters of the book.  I would also like to recommend the Reader's Guide in the back which is filled with extra Bible references and study questions.

In order to comply with new Federal Trade Commission regulations, please note that this book was provided compliments of  Thomas Nelson's book review program.
