Author: Andy Stanley
Reason for Reading: I received this book through the Booksneeze program.
Summary: The author demonstrates how God’s grace is woven all through the Bible, both Old Testament and New. His motivation was a comment by his wife that she preferred the God of the New Testament over the Old. But Stanley shows how grace is a consistent message throughout, reflected in familiar biblical characters and stories not typically used as examples of grace. The centrality of grace within the Bible is firmly established.
Review: I really enjoyed how the author focused on grace and grace alone. Through examples pulled from all over the span of the Bible, he finds how grace is present and indeed essential to God’s relationship with man. I found every example meaningful, whether it used a Biblical character I was familiar with or not. I’d recommend this book for biblical scholars and non-scholars alike who want to reconnect with how God’s grace makes all the difference.
