Great book on Grace
Grace, what is it? How much of it are we given? What does it mean to show grace in return? Grace is a topic we have all heard about, the definition is simple to understand but the truth of what grace really means is difficult to comprehend. Each and every one of us has been granted grace, we may never truly understand what that grace entails and what it means for each of us individually but our God is a gracious God and He has wrapped us with unmerited favor.

Max Lucado is a name that many Christians know, his books come highly recommended and the list of titles and subjects he writes about is extensive. His latest book Grace stands strong with the rest of his titles, tackling a subject that many of us act like we understand what it means. Lucado has compiled from his own past as well as personal stories from others the stories of grace that enrich our lives and allow us to share a glimpse of what the grace of God truly is.

Lucado’s latest book about Grace is a must add to your bookshelf!

I received Grace complimentary through the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for an honest reviews. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Narrator thoughts - I like Wayne Shepherd. I've heard several books read by him before and I have enjoyed each one. His deep clear voice helps set the mood for the message of the book. It was a perfect match.

Book Thoughts - I have always loved Max Lucado. His unique writing style and ability to touch the heart of the listener combine to make this a truly beautiful work. Through story and scripture Lucado gives you a picture of the grace of God draw on the canvas of His love.

Grace is lavished on us by a loving God. Will we take it? It's there, it's waiting. Waiting to cover us. Will we accept this wonderful and lavish gift called Grace?

A brief but deep look at grace
In Grace, Max Lucado explains what grace is and the many ways it makes a difference in the lives of Christians.

I think the biggest strength of the book is that it packs a lot of really big theological ideas into compelling, easy to listen to and rather short narrative. It certainly doesn’t feel like reading a theology textbook. Much like in his other books, there are many clever turns of phrase and interesting illustrations. I sometimes wished I was reading rather than listening to the audiobook so I could highlight portions.

Another thing I really appreciated about this book was the emphasis of grace not just being something that gets us started as a Christian but as something that sustains the Christian life. This is such an important facet of God’s grace but one that sometimes gets overlooked.

The only thing I disagreed with here is in one of the later chapters he gives the impression that God loved us because there was something particularly lovable about us. Given the fallen and rebellious nature of humanity I think the idea treads in a somewhat theologically questionable direction.

Overall, I think this is a really good book. I think it has the potential to help Christians who normally might be someone scared off reading theological books to understand some really important things about grace. The book might also prove to be a helpful perspective on Christianity for non-Christians who have been hurt by legalistic or harsh Christians.

Have you been changed by grace?
Grace. It’s, as Lucado suggests, more than we deserve, and greater than we imagine. The change that G-d’s grace makes in our lives doesn’t happen overnight, but it does happen. It takes time. It may come through grief or joy, frustration or success. Grace isn’t how we define it, however. Our limited understanding of the word “grace” does not fully explain His Grace to us. That is where Lucado steps in – to educate us and guide us. G-d’s Grace answers the “why” of life and cleans up the mess of life.

Shepherd narrations at a quicker than medium pace, creating a rushed feeling in the text. Confident in tone, authoritative in diction, and defined in stance, Shepherd’s narration is a solid reading of the text. There is an echo-like feeling to the audio, as if this were recorded in a lecture hall. Not emotional, the narration does carry a proper inflection, but only average quality. Again, the audio experience felt rushed, giving an unusually stressed feel to a discussion about grace.

As Lucado asks, have you been changed by Grace? If not, listen on…

Although Max Lucado has been a very familiar name to me for years, this was my first introduction into one of his 'chapter books for grown-ups', if you will. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Max is obviously a very gifted, personable, attention-grabbing writer. Some have complained about the book's simplistic nature. I think in this case it's a great thing. Christians can be great at making everything so complex. Grace is really important, so why not write about it in a way that's accessible to the ordinary laymen? If you want something complex I'm sure you can find it, but I'm quite sure that's not the audience Lucado is targeting here.

The narration for the audio version is excellent, couldn't have done better myself!

If like me, you associated the name Lucado with mini devotionals, Thomas Kincade paintings, and short stories, this book would be a great way to broaden your horizons! Even if you're already familiar with him, have a listen, and grow in your understanding of God's amazing grace through Christ.
