Book Review: Captured by Grace

Captured By Grace: No One is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God
Captured By Grace: No One is Beyond the Reach of a Loving God
By Dr. David Jeremiah
Thomas Nelson, 2010
English, 240 pgs.

Book Description:

Timely and encouraging words to initiate a fresh experience of God's grace.

By following the dramatic story of John Newton, the Amazing Grace hymn writer, and the apostle Paul's own encounter with the God of grace, pastor and teacher Dr. David Jeremiah helps readers understand the freeing power of permanent forgiveness and mercy.
Dramatic stories and biblical insights highlight the very personal effects of grace and how grace:
  • wondrously spans all our differences
  • rescues us from our lostness
  • helps us overcome our weaknesses, 
  • takes us from victims to victors 
My Review:
I have been fascinated by the concept of grace for the past few months. I have really been searching out not only what it means to receive grace but how we're to live once we receive that grace. I wish I'd found this book earlier in that search. This book is very easy to read and plainly explains, both with Bible verses and personal experiences (from John Newton), what God's grace means in our salvation experience. I love the illustrations from the Parable of the Prodigal Son and the illustration of the gifts for the traveler in particular. Yet another book which is going to be shared...

I received a copy of the book from Book Sneeze. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
