The Truth About Grace

Book description:  “Is the experience of God’s grace in your life a thrilling thing? Just thinking about the fact that God, by His own sovereign plan, decided to be gracious to me is overwhelming. There is nothing greater than receiving grace upon grace.” —John MacArthur

"Simple definitions can make grace feel like an obvious―even mundane―concept. Nothing could be further from the truth. Grace is the defining feature of the Christian faith. Once we understand how undeserving we are and how much favor we’ve been given, grace becomes shocking, thrilling, inspiring, and contagious.

Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur illuminates this profound concept with verse upon verse of Scripture. He also shows that misunderstandings about grace have led to some of the church’s greatest problems, perhaps because grace is her most precious gift.

For decades, MacArthur has encouraged countless Christians to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and a greater respect for God’s truth. In The Truth About series, he now gathers his landmark teachings about core aspects of the Christian faith in one place. These powerful books are designed to give readers a focused experience that centers on God’s character and how it applies to their daily walk of faith."

My review:  This is not a long book, but John MacArthur has packed it full of great truth!  A mature believer will not necessarily learn anything new, but will certainly find great encouragement in their walk with Christ, as well as necessary reminders that all Christians need to hear.  New believers will find this book very helpful in understanding more about the grace of God and how God's grace is manifested in our lives.  MacArthur uses numerous verses throughout the book to support what he says, and he does not hestitate to tell it like it is.  This is a great book that every believer would benefit from reading.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze Blogger program  in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
