The Grace of God by Andy Stanley

Andy Stanley did an excellent job explaining God’s grace.  He captures his readers by providing examples from both the Old and New Testaments while weaving in personal stories.  I have heard Andy Stanley preach before and I found this book to be similar to his preaching style.  It was an informative yet easy read.  I felt he explained the subject matter well and in a relatable manner.

On the back of the book Andy writes, “Grace.  It’s what we crave most when our guilt is exposed.  It’s the very thing we are hesitant to extend when we are confronted with the guilt of others – especially when their guilt has robbed us of something we consider valuable.  Therein is the struggle, the struggle for grace….”  He goes on to explain grace even further but these are such powerful words as they can challenge us to become more like Christ.  Throughout this book Andy does an excellent job providing examples of how far the grace of God extends even to those who may be viewed as unworthy.  I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others who would like a glimpse into the world of God’s grace.
