We speak of grace often. But do we understand it? More important, do we truly believe in it . . . and do our lives proclaim it as powerfully as our words? In What's So Amazing About Grace?, award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's so amazing about grace? I was challenged as I read this but he never lays guilt, no condemning here. At the same time it makes me rethink some of my previous convictions. I would not be able to read this one in a day, there is too much meat here. My advice is to take it in small portions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Grace Philip Yancy has written a wonderful book on the involved topic of grace in our lives. He writes with a very simple style that is easy to read, yet still imparts very deep messages. One of the most effective techniques he uses is relating events in his personal life that caused him to better understand the workings of grace (when one of his best friends reveals that he is homosexual). I read this book at a time when grace was a difficult issue for me, and it helped immensely. Highly recommended.

From Our Editors

In What's So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy? Yancey sets grace in the midst of life's stark images, tests its mettle against horrific "ungrace". Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace's life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear?
