Grace by Max Lucado

Return to the world of fantastic storytelling and practical advice from the New York Times Best-Selling Author, Max Lucado.

This time he unpacks the gift that is more than we deserve and greater than we imagine: Grace.

Everything you've come to expect from Lucado is found within this book. You'll read the humorous stories from his life, some more sober moments that help bring out the application and the study guide at the end.

Eleven chapters and the conclusion fill the pages of Grace. Each chapter begins with quotes from Scripture and famous historical people.

I enjoyed Lucado's unpacking of having wet feet from Jesus stooping to wash our filth and that we should return the favor to those around us.

Max Lucado is an expert on taking simple object lessons and turning them into life applications without feeling like you're being preached to. You'll finish this book with a breath of fresh air.

If you've been in church for any amount of time, you may not experience or learn anything new from this book. (Lucado is a defender of the once-saved-always-saved crowd) But it does a body good to read about the grace of God every once in a while. Especially when the teaching and inspiration comes from a man so talented with the written word.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Thomas Nelson Publishing.
