The Grace of God by Andy Stanley

The Grace of God by Andy Stanley

Synopsis

Learn how God’s grace can and will transform you.

None of us deserve what God offers, a life free from sin and hope for a glorious future, but unbelievably it’s ours for the taking. Why? Because of God’s grace. The unmerited favor, the lavish love and kindness he pours out on us, and has, since Creation.

But if it’s so available then why do we live a grace-less life? Why are our churches filled with disillusioned Christians, weary of religion’s demands, struggling with personal defeat because of issues or behaviors?

Join pastor Andy Stanley as he traces grace through the Old and New Testament, observing God’s grace at work in the lives of some of the best, and worst, characters. He also uses personal stories from his own life to reveal how grace is not a natural response but is the most essential one. Together these stories unravel the mystery of grace and tell of its transforming power to set us free.

Review

The Grace of God is a powerfully written book by Andy Stanley. Many of us know the stories of the Old Testament well. Some see the stories showing a cruel God, others a kind loving God. Andy Stanley in the most unique and creative way shows us how each story in reality shows us God’s grace moving through the circumstances. Andy shows us how God is not cruel or vindictive, but rather a loving father who even though we have rejected him, pushed him away, and even told him we hated him still loves us. Anyone going through a struggle or feeling God cannot love them needs to read this book. For those solid in their beliefs this book will provide great encouragement in your walk and help you come alongside others in need.
