The Truth About Grace | [John MacArthur]

The Truth About Grace

Simple definitions can make grace feel like an obvious - even mundane - concept. Nothing could be further from the truth. Grace is the defining feature of the Christian faith. Once we understand how undeserving we are and how much favor we’ve been given, grace becomes shocking, thrilling, inspiring, and contagious. John MacArthur illuminates this profound concept with verse upon verse of Scripture. He also shows that misunderstandings about grace have led to some of the church’s greatest problems.

Publisher's Summary

“Is the experience of God’s grace in your life a thrilling thing? Just thinking about the fact that God, by His own sovereign plan, decided to be gracious to me is overwhelming. There is nothing greater than receiving grace upon grace.” (John MacArthur)

Simple definitions can make grace feel like an obvious - even mundane - concept. Nothing could be further from the truth. Grace is the defining feature of the Christian faith. Once we understand how undeserving we are and how much favor we’ve been given, grace becomes shocking, thrilling, inspiring, and contagious. Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur illuminates this profound concept with verse upon verse of Scripture. He also shows that misunderstandings about grace have led to some of the church’s greatest problems, perhaps because grace is her most precious gift.

    "Good quick read about grace"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe. If my friend had a lot of questions about the subject of grace, I might suggest this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Truth About Grace?

    The definition of grace - God's unmerited favor - I know the author didn't come up with that, but I liked the attention that definition received in the book. That's a simple concept that has far-reaching implications for the Christian life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't know that there was a "scene" in this book that stands out to me so much as the attention that the definition of grace received.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it was somewhat difficult to get through in some places (it gets a little preachy at times).


    Any additional comments?

    I got a lot out of this study of grace, but I can't say that it was very encouraging, which is something I look for in Christian books.

    On the one hand, what could be more encouraging than knowing that God Almighty has chosen to bestow his favor and mercy on you. I get that, but I guess I needed to hear a little more about how God makes it possible for us to live under grace the way He intends.

    It seemed somewhat "preachy" to me, at times, because of the implication that we should be despondent if we fail God. We're going to fail Him. That's why we need grace. I also understand that grace doesn't give us a reason to sin, but what about the impassioned plea to pray to the God who loves us so very deeply to help us with sin and daily life? I didn't hear much about that.

    To be fair, I tend to judge most Christian works by The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence, so maybe that's why it didn't speak to me as much.
