Book Review: Grace

It's not often a book can move me or make me think just by reading the description, but "Grace" by Max Lucado. You may think you understand or know grace but Lucado challenges the reader to dig deeper and gain a deeper understanding of God's true grace. Because God's grace is not simple nor surface-level, but is a force of nature unto itself that God wishes to lavish on each of us to strengthen and sustain us, change and embolden us.

I loved this book. Each chapter was short enough to not weigh me down but always had plenty to think about after reading it. At times I read several chapters before processing but occasionally there would be something that would grab me and I would only get through one chapter. I was challenged to deepen my understanding of what God's grace looks like and how He might want to use his grace in my life. It truly gave me a more vibrant picture of what grace could look like.

Now, I know that Max Lucado's story telling style is not for everyone. But I rather enjoyed some of the real life stories that permeated the book and helped to give flesh to some of the concepts on grace. I think this will definitely be one I will have to reread at some point again as I work to have a more grace-filled life.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
