“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. It’s this struggle that makes grace more story than doctrine. It’s the struggle that reminds us that grace is bigger than compassion or forgiveness. That struggle is the context for both. When we are on the receiving end, grace is refreshing. When it is required of us, it is often disturbing. But when correctly applied, it seems to solve just about everything.

This struggle is not new; it has been going on since the beginning.”—Andy Stanley

We find in the pages of scripture that the stories found there often mirror our own stories, and that we too need the very thing we do not deserve: the grace of God. From the beginning, the church has had an uneasy relationship with grace. The gravitational pull is always toward graceless religion. The odd thing is that when you read the New Testament, the only thing Jesus stood against consistently was graceless religion. The only group he attacked relentlessly was graceless religious leaders. Even now as you think about grace, there might be a little voice in your head whispering, “It can’t be that easy!” “What about obedience?” “What about disobedience?” “What about repeated misbehavior?” “What about bad habits?” “What about justice?” “What about repentance?” It’s this tension that makes grace so slippery. But that’s the beauty and the truth of grace. We don’t deserve it. We can’t earn it. It can’t be qualified. But God gives it to us anyway because he loves us unconditionally. The story of grace is your story. And as you are about to discover grace plays a larger role than you imagine.

    " A well explained, easy to understand book on grace. Andy Stanley explores how grace started with the creation of the world and continues throughout the Bible. Although most of the stories were familiar, I had not viewed many of them through the lens of grace. If you are struggling with understanding the concept of grace and God or have difficulty seeing the consistency of God's character throughout the Bible, this book is certainly worth reading. "

    " So far so good.... It's awesome to be focused on God's grace from the very first chapters of Genesis. "

    " An excellent biblical overview of grace as the motivation of God's interaction with humanity. Far from being a New Testament theme standing in contrast to the Old Testment, Stanley reveals evidence of God's grace as a consistant theme throughout the entire biblical narrative. "

    " Pretty good read although a bit basic. I did enjoy some new insights. "
