about

Grace.We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, "Do you believe in grace?" who could say no?Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? God's grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly. Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. Let's make certain grace gets you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives you lots to think about I bought this book to use at a bible class at the church. Read it beforehand and found it very thought provoking. I enjoyed how it strengthened my faith by realizing what the Bible says about Grace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO Challenging! Grace by Max Lucado I love Max Lucado books! If there is a person out there that shows that there is a gift of a teacher, he has it! In Grace, Max Lucado writes about several aspects of the idea of God’s Grace in the Bible. The subtitle for the book in “More than we deserve. Greater than we imagine.” I think this is one of the biggest things that is misunderstood by people in current culture. By Grace we are saved… through faith. We don’t have to work for God’s Grace. That is the focus of this book. Lucado touches on a few stories that are familiar to most, but he applies his usual way of unlocking them, and sharing them in a way that is relevant to a modern reader. He leads in the book with his own story of a heart operation, and then compares that to how receiving God’s Grace can be like having a spiritual heart transplant. He uses the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery, ask the modern reader what act of sin they would be caught in? How does God’s grace apply to the reader? He brings in the story of Barabbas, and the story of the Exodus. This book is the perfect balance of biblical narrative, scripture application, and modern application to be able to teach people about God’s Grace. As a pastor of tweens, I can see how I could teach them from the lessons here, but there is something in this book for a Christian of any age. I was provided a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson for my unbiased review. For shopping online, or when in the Ottawa area, check out Salem Storehouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Words the pierce the spirit I LOVE Max Lucado so my review will likely be a bit biased. Grace was a very easy read and, as usual, Max's words pierced right through to my heart. I've been a Christian for 20 years and still haven't captured the meaning and / or the significance of GRACE. It's not just about God's grace towards us. It's about our grace towards others. It's about forgiving AND forgetting. It's about giving to someone what they don't deserve and ACCEPTING God's free gift of grace that He gives to us. Grace, unfortunately, is thrown around as somewhat of a 'catch' word in the Christian world today. Most of us, myself included, aren't getting it. We aren't grasping the true meaning of the word 'grace'. Jesus.. the Son of God.. the Creator of the universe.. the ONE so worthy of our praise and adoration stooped down. He came down to the level of sinners to show them forgiveness.. to show them understanding.. to heal them... to show us grace. I am inspired by this book to live my life differently... to breathe in God's grace like the oxygen I need to survive. I am inspired to find the positive in everything and the mercy of God in the smallest of gestures. I truly enjoyed this book. Again, I'm somewhat biased as I LOVE anything written by Max Lucado. He has a gift from God and writes with words that pierce right through to our souls. I will read this book again and again.
