I’ve always been a huge Max Lucado fan and his new book Grace just solidifies that.
Written in a down to earth, loving manner, Grace allows you to not only grow in your understanding of God’s grace but you’ll also walk away truly feeling like Grace has been poured out.
I sat and read this book in just a few days, but it could easily be read as a devotional. There’s even a readers guide in the back that has some great questions for each chapter.
If you’re needing to be refreshed or just want to know what God’s grace is all about.. check Max Lucado’s Grace out.
From the publisher:
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?
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 by grace?
God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.
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.
