The Divine Progression of Grace - Bob Santos

Blazing a trail to fruitful living. This book is all about grace. In the Preface the author asks "What you might wonder, does God's grace have to do with blazing a trail? Actually, a lot." And "Grace, by it's very nature, creates radical changes in our own lives and in the lives of those we touch with God's love."
It is essential to have a firm foundation to understand fully what grace is. And this book will help you understand that grace is active. God has given His grace to us so we can show others grace. Even in our fallen state, we can show grace to our fellow human beings, and therefore show them God's love.
The author is founder and president of Search Me Ministries. 
In the chapter titled Empowered to Serve, the author tackles a tough issue in the church, cessationist vs. continuationist.
The author states he himself is a continuationist, and offers some argument for his position. Although I can respectfully disagree with his position, I appreciate his honesty.  
With titles such as the The maturing influence of Grace, The Unique Nature of the New Covenant, and a Faith to Die For, the author helps the reader to understand God's grace in a new way.
The author  is founder and president of Search For Me ministries, and described as "an average guy who is learning to draw upon the anything-but-average grace of God. And he is wanting to share the good news of God's grace with others.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn lore about God's grace, and that can be any one of us.
