In this book the author, America's pastor defines God's grace and illuminates the changes it can bring into a person's life. 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? In this book, the author 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. The author here makes an effort to help us understand that Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off, that Grace is another word for God's reservoir of strength and protection, and that God has enough grace to pardon every sin, solve every dilemma, wipe every tear, and answer every question.

This was a phenomenal book. It is about God's grace - the grace He gives us and the grace we should give one another. I have read many of Max's books and this one was right up near the top, for me. It confirmed who I want to be in Jesus - - who I want to honour and glorify by extending grace when it doesn't feel like I should. This book was very special for me. It was an amazing read.

Agree with another comment, good but does not top some other works by Lucado.

This inspirational book by Max Lucado was a welcome read during Easter. He explains how "grace" keeps all of us humans on course loving one another.

I can see why Max Lucado's work receives such high praise.

This is an excellent book that I could not put down very easily.

The "Reader's Guide" at the end of the book is a very helpful and useful resource for both individual review & study, and group study.

Definitely a book worth reading.

Not Lucado's best work, but still good.
