Victim of Grace by Robin Jones Gunn

This book reads sort of like an autobiography with Biblical stories throughout it. Each chapter contains a story about a difficult time in Gunn’s life and a story from the Bible where a woman has gone through difficulties as well. 

Gunn then brings out how God and his grace worked into each story to help and uplift each of the characters.

Robin Jones Gunn did a very good job at bringing out aspects of grace in popular Bible stories that I had never thought about. It was amazing to see how each one of these ladies was covered by His Grace. 

Gunn also has a way of writing and telling her like a friend sharing something personal to another friend.

Although Gunn’s personal story is very interesting and I did enjoy reading it, I was expecting more grace stories from other women that Gunn had interviewed or meet over the years. There is none of that, just her life and her observations of those women in the Bible.

This book is written for women, though men might enjoy it as well. It is interesting, touching, and thought provoking.
