Publisher's Summary

The author of 6 Gold Medallion award-winning books challenges Christians to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, what's so amazing about grace? Philip Yancey gives the listener a probing and impassioned look at grace: what it looks like - but more importantly, what it doesn't look like. Yancey contends that grace is a concept at the heart of God's plan for salvation, and that it is the responsibility of every Christian to reveal the grace the world is searching for.

Inspiring

First, the small negative: The reader was very slow. I got around this by turning up the speed on my iPod. If I would not have been able to do that, I am not so certain I could have stayed interested.

But now to the content. I am very glad I did stay interested. I love the way Yancey teaches us about grace. He uses many stories to make his point. At the same time, it is not as though he is simply stating his opinion and leaving the Bible out of it. He actually gives very good interpretation of and application from parables. He just simply has a masterful way of relating the concepts of grace to real life.

I like this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone. It impacted my life personally, as I was able to recognize the un-grace I practiced so readily. Through his stories, he shows us what grace looks like and gives us tangible examples to follow in an area where so few examples are obvious in my daily experience. For the first time, I feel as though I have at least a good idea how to start practicing grace without simply piling on more rules which lead instead to ungrace.

A book that sticks with you

Nonfictions, particularly one of this length, are difficult to follow in the car. But I'm surprised at how much of "Grace" has stuck with me months after reading it. Yancey is a bit repetitive, which at first I found annoying, but it did make it easier to pick up where I'd left off. The book gives an apolitical look at the meanness that has crept into public Christian discourse but also offers an antidote. Yancey poses a central question: Why do we have so much trouble believing in God's love and infinite forgiveness? He uses well-researched Biblical support to prove that we should.
