Publisher's Summary

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 pre-meal 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.

    "Concise, poetic, powerfully informative motivating"

    Written as only Max Lacado can, GRACE is a powerful, concise overview of the Biblical doctrine of God's grace in our lives. Lacado has the gift of making the complex understandable and reachable. The book is great for anyone, but perfect for those struggling with either their view of a "mean God" or of how they feel God views them.

    Story
    "If I lived in Texas....."

    If you are a Christian, and have never heard of this pastor-author from Texas, you're in for a treat! Why not start with this small book? I've read many of Max's books since I became a Christian over 30 years ago. Max Lucado has a God-given gift for communicating the Truths of the Word in a way that even a child understands. He has a way of taking the stories in Scripture and creating his own parallel story in a contemporary manner. In this book, for example, one of the stories is that of the old testament book of Ruth. He explains the background of the story and the plight of Ruth and her mother-in-law, Naomi. Then he explains how we are like Ruth, and how Jesus saves us as Boaz, Ruth's kinsman/redeemer, saved her.
    I believe that his writing crosses denominational lines. Enjoy!

    "The Gift"

    This book met my expectations of the "undeserved grace gift" given from God. The book was spritially uplifting.

    "Predictably Lucado"

    The illustrations are poignant and the word smithing Lucado-sequel. The message is the same one that resounds through all of his volumes. Predictable, yes! Quality? Yes that too.

    "Deep, short, meaningful read"

    This book is a great read for a quick pick-me-up and reassurance of God's love for you. Max Lucado is a very encouraging author, and he writes with such love and perception.

    I would recommend this book to anyone feeling discouraged or like God has forgotten about you.

    Story
    "What's wrong with beer?"
    Would you try another book from Max Lucado and/or Wayne Shepherd?

    Yes


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A little less retelling of Bible stories...I don't buy a book to hear it retell another (even if it is the Bible)


    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand the authors whole section on driking beer. I understand that he felt hiding it was wrong, but personally if you aren't getting drunk, what exactly is the sin there? Just don't hide driking a beer, there is nothing wrong with it (Paul and Jesus drank wine afterall!...I don't believe beer was availabe in that era, or perhaps they'd be having a beer too!). Anyhow, either way, the section on this was long and distracting and was't the best story to make a point.

    Story
    "My grace is sufficient for you 2 Corinthians 12:9"
    If you could sum up Grace in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational, encouraging, a reminder of God's goodness - His grace. The author provides the listener with ample scriptures and reminds us about how we need to appreciate the gift of God's grace, something I hate to admit that I have, at times, taken for granted. I really appreciate this book and the reminder that, "My grace is sufficient for you. for my power is made perfect in weakness" ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9. I claim this verse and hope that others will enjoy this short listen as much as I have.

    "The best book I have ever read on grace!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Grace to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version so I would not know.


    What other book might you compare Grace to and why?

    I have read several books on grace and this is the best I have ever read. It makes it so easy to understand and has so many good examples that makes it so amazing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me happy and excited that I feel I fully understand what grace is all about.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope you get a chance to listen to this. You will not be sorry you did.

    "Another great book by Max"

    So often we hear and learn about grace. Max however had been able to capture it in easy to understand language, with references to scripture to dazzle you. Not with his skill, but with the words and assurances that he may pass on from Him. Easy book to listen to, wonderful content to receive, and grateful treasure to live by. GRACE.
