"Grace" by Max Lucado

For some reason, of which I cannot now recall, I thought that this was going to be a book that I would not like. I actually thought it was going to be one of those dry sort of books that you had to force yourself to read. I was actually quite wrong! I actually loved this book! First off the subject of “Grace.” Such an important thing to get a good grasp of. Once you realize the Lord has bestowed His Grace upon you it seems it is instilled into your very heart. God's grace comes out on behalf of others along with His love following or as a result. Before each chapter the author listed different Bible verses which pertain to that chapter as well as quotes such as, “The Christian is a man to whom something has happened.” by E.L Mascall. (I love scripture and I love quotes! Good to meditate upon and grow from!) This book became my bedside companion until I was through reading it. I looked forward to going to bed each night having this to look forward to read. I found in reading this book before bed that I was putting my thoughts on something positive, something good...something GOD! Parts of it made me heart softened and touched there in those deep, secret no man's land. God reached me there through Max Lucado's words. A wonderful book to read and would make a wonderful gift as well. I recommend. I received this book for free in return for a free book review through booksneeze I was not required to write a favorable review. Freely I have been given and so freely I give.
