Grace review

Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine

Barnes & Noble says:

Grace.

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 premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.

But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no?

Started this on the way to visit my sister last week and finished it yesterday.  I enjoy Max’s newer stuff – some of his older stuff isn’t quite as fun.  Max has great examples, personal stories, and insights to help make the points of the book.

I have to say, while this book didn’t break any new ground on the Grace front but I enjoyed listening to it through books-on-tape.  It is one that, when I have the money to expand my library, I will buy it.

With several touching stories, Max moves the book quickly along as he shows us the Grace of God.  I give the book a big A.  🙂
