A Review

This book provides a walk through scripture with a focus on God’s grace.  It selects nine men and women, each of which contributes to our understanding of grace, and outlines their story and examines the result that grace had on their lives.  

Some books attempt to present a theology of grace.  This book gives a dramatic look at how God’s grace is lived out in the lives of His people.  Each chapter not only tells the character’s story, but also includes clear statement of the lessons of the chapter apply to life of modern believer.  The book ends with a selection of Bible Studies suitable for use by an individual or group as they learn about God’s grace.  

My biggest concern is the inconsistent use of Scripture references throughout the book.  Some references are included in the body of the text, others are included in notes located at the end of the book.  Given the inconsistent use of references, it is difficult to tell whether all scripture references are cited correctly.  It appears that the final copy of the book will include a significant amount of artwork to accompany the text; however, other than the insertion of some blank picture frames, the artwork was not included in my review copy.

This review is based on a free electronic copy of this book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
