This is the second book by Andy Stanley that I've read and reviewed and I'm finding him to be one of my long list of favorite authors. He has a great writing style. The Grace of God is a nice light read that I found enjoyable and informative. The information wasn't too in-your-face or too intensely deep. It was insightful and lifted the spirit. What exactly is Grace? Grace is not getting what we truly deserve. There are more complicated, deeper explanations, but this is a book that will help you to understand various nuances. Andy Stanley uses several people from the Bible to demonstrate the grace they received and, in doing so, gives greater clarity to the true meaning of God's favor to us. Examples like Moses, Abram, Jonah, Rahab, Matthew, Nicodemus, and the Prodigal Son are but a few of the familiar stories he uses to demonstrate God's marvelous grace. There are 13 chapters that reveal aspects, such as chosen, redeemed, rescued, puzzled, accepted, saved, and other delineations. Each example given renews the awe at how gracious and loving our Heavenly Father is to His children.
I received this book free from BookSneeze as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
