The Truth about Grace - John MacArthur
This book is part of the Truth About Series from Thomas Nelson Publishers. The author is pastor of Grace Community Church and president of Grace to You which has a website, www.gty.org, and radio program. With only 5 chapters, this is a nice, short, easily readable book about the often misunderstood concept of God's grace. Through many Biblical references, the author explains grace defined, received, misunderstood, realized, and lived out.
I particularly enjoyed how Mr. MacArthur has no problem pointing out errors and standing up for what is right regardless of how anyone else may feel about it. For example, the difference between human merit and divine grace in the chapter on Grace misunderstood and twisted.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a Bible-based book on the true meaning of God's Grace.
