Publisher's Summary

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 pre-meal 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.

Concise, poetic, powerfully informative motivating

Written as only Max Lacado can, GRACE is a powerful, concise overview of the Biblical doctrine of God's grace in our lives. Lacado has the gift of making the complex understandable and reachable. The book is great for anyone, but perfect for those struggling with either their view of a "mean God" or of how they feel God views them.

If I lived in Texas.....

If you are a Christian, and have never heard of this pastor-author from Texas, you're in for a treat! Why not start with this small book? I've read many of Max's books since I became a Christian over 30 years ago. Max Lucado has a God-given gift for communicating the Truths of the Word in a way that even a child understands. He has a way of taking the stories in Scripture and creating his own parallel story in a contemporary manner. In this book, for example, one of the stories is that of the old testament book of Ruth. He explains the background of the story and the plight of Ruth and her mother-in-law, Naomi. Then he explains how we are like Ruth, and how Jesus saves us as Boaz, Ruth's kinsman/redeemer, saved her.
I believe that his writing crosses denominational lines. Enjoy!
