Publisher's Summary

Grace or truth…or both? Truth without grace breeds self-righteousness and crushing legalism. Grace without truth breeds deception and moral compromise. Is it possible to embrace both in balance? Jesus did. Randy Alcorn offers a simple yet profound two-point checklist of Christlikeness. “In the end,” says Alcorn, “we don’t need grace or truth. We need grace and truth. And for people to see Jesus in us, they must see both.”

    "Easy to listen to, Powerful truths"

    As a person that for over 20 years was stuck in the legalism of mixing my law with myy grace I was so refreshed to come out of the bonds that shackled me. But now that I am out I find some people that preach grace seem to be a bit heavy on grace and a little light on truth.

    Randy says in this book that the successful Christian life is to have a balance with grace and truth. It was enjoyable to listen to and I liked his stories particulary the one he recouted that Phillip Yancee told about a prodigal daughter.

    I find Randy a great Teacher of the Word of God

    "Such a small book with a very powerful message"

    A book I have read over and over...one that I give as Christmas gifts. Such a small book with a very powerful message that should not be missed by believers and nonbeliever alike.

    Story
    "Primarily about evangelism"

    I was hoping for a different book. I was wanting a book on how to disagree as Christians. This isn't that book. This is primarily a book for Christians on how to be full of both grace and truth as we talk to those outside of the church. It isn't a bad book. But my main complaint is that he has a very fluid idea of truth. Sometimes he means law (Old Testament law), sometime he means Jesus Christ, sometimes he means propositional truth (2+2=4), sometime he is talking about cultural understanding. With this type of fluid understanding of what he means by truth it is hard to really interact with him about whether people are really being truthful or not. It isn't a bad book but it is not a great book either.
