Publisher's Summary

The author of 6 Gold Medallion Award-winning books challenges Christians to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, what's so amazing about grace? Philip Yancey gives the listener a probing and impassioned look at grace: what it looks like - but more importantly, what it doesn't look like. Yancey contends that grace is a concept at the heart of God's plan for salvation, and that it is the responsibility of every Christian to reveal the grace the world is searching for.

Critic Reviews

"At a time when the actions of Christians holding extreme positions can inoculate many against the Gospel and the claims of Christ, Philip draws us back to the gift of grace." (Dr. Robert A. Seiple, President, World Vision)

Another Gem from Yancy

Yancy is set far apart from cliche American Christian writing I've come to loathe. Consciously shunning clubby neo-pious "insider" dialogue, Yancy approaches issues of faith with a journalist's integrity to honesty, balance, and scope. As a Christian, I find much in today's Christian pop culture outright embarrassing -- Yancy is one of the shining exceptions of intellectual integrity. This book is certainly among his best works.

Amazing is Right!

Alternate title for the book: Everything you ever wanted to know about God's Grace but never knew to ask.
Grace tasks us to be "gracious" to everyone including sinners, enemies, and "different people". But the world and even some churches have taught us to give them "un-grace" instead.

Truly inspiring.

I found this book to be truly inspiring. He uses wonderful stories that are great illustrations of God's grace. The most basic message of Christianity (we are saved by grace, through faith) is powerfully delivered.

Made me stop and think

Very thoughtful insights as to grace and the wonderful aspects of how God and Jesus have given us a gift that is priceless. Provoked me to think of ways I could apply it to every day life and my relationships with my kids, my wife and my friends ... and especially people I don't like.

Left Oriented Political Agenda

Overall very boring and mostly political. Well informed Christains will not find this book valuable. The author seems to have an agenda against faith based voters. I felt like I was being lectured to for hours. His definition of Grace is bizarre. This is the first audible book I chose to discard.
