Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine

By: Max Lucado

I love days when I can sit down and read a Max Lucado book.  I so enjoy his writing style and am glad that I had the opportunity to read his new book Grace.  I think this book is another great piece as it explores the grace of God.  The stories that he shares are relevant and help to paint a clearer picture of the point he is trying to get across.  One of my favorite stories that he shares is that of a missionary physician and his daughter.  The story is in the eighth chapter called “Feared Dethroned”.  I absolutely love this story as it illustrates how God knows our needs before we do.  His grace is truly sufficient.  Max also gets personal in this book as he shares how he has experienced the grace of God through his struggle with alcohol.    

I highly recommend this book if you want to learn more about the Grace of God.  For readers who like to do further study there is a Reader’s Guide for each chapter starting on page 157.  I like how the Reader’s Guide is set-up as each chapter contains the following: Grace Reading, Review Scripture, Ask, Call on God and Explore Grace-Shaped Living.
