Book Review: The Grace of God by Andy Stanley

Andy Stanley's The Grace of God is an excellent modern study on this pivotal aspect of our faith. All Christians can benefit from pursuing further understanding of God's grace. Stanley's down-to-earth writing style makes this book an approachable read even for the newest Christian while maintaining value for us all due to its important subject matter.

While I enjoyed and would recommend this book, I wasn't wowed by any new revelations, though there were a few points to ponder.  And that's okay. There is a lot out there about grace. Fortunately, it is not a subject typically ignored by Christian leaders and teachers. However, due to this influx of information on grace, it's easy to downplay or ignore some of its most important applications in our lives. This book is excellent in addressing this through its organization and approach. Stanley leads readers through Biblical stories, retelling them in everyday language to help the readers to see new viewpoints in such familiar content and highlight the most vital truths about the gift of God's grace. This book would make a fine edition to any Christian's library.

I recieved a copy of this book for free from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my impartial review.
