Grace - Max Lucado

More than we deserve, Greater than we imagine.  Recommendations from authors such as Randy Alcorn, Cal Thomas, Stephen Arterburn and John Ortberg I had high expectations for this book.
I was not disappointed.  God's grace is such a huge part of the Bible, but is often misunderstood and downplayed by Christians.
In this Scripture based book, Max goes into great detail concerning the grace of God.  Most of us don't understand God's grace.  We will never exhaust His supply of grace, and He will never run out.
In the chapter titled "Heaven: Guaranteed" which opens up "Trust God's hold on you, more than your hold on God." he tackles the issue of external security.  He uses the analogy of someone holding a boarding pass for a flight in contrast with someone who is on stand-by.
In a particularly honest chapter titled "Coming clean with God" he reveals his struggle with alcoholism, his need for confession and restoration.  Using this example he reminds us all of our need for confession and acceptance.
Max Lucado has written so many books over the years, and keeps coming out with better ones all the time.  Often when an author is this popular, the subjects get watered down.  Not the case this time, "Grace" is another great book.
I have received this book at no cost from the publisher.
