Review | Grace by Max Lucado


Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine

2012 - Thomas Nelson 

Written with an articulate eloquence from beginning to end, Max Lucado’s Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine, allows us to reflect on our own heart’s concept of grace. What is the angle from which we approach it? We all know the idea of grace, but do we truly understand it? Chapter by chapter, page by page, Max takes us on a journey of uncovering the grandeur of God’s grace – a radical & transforming grace. From stories of the Bible made tangible and relatable - to journeys of his own life as well as his friends, you are gripped from beginning to end. (In my own journey of reading through the pages I found myself in a puddle of tears on more than one occasion...)

Max has a gift of connecting with the heart of the Father. His book meets people right where they’re at and reveals that God can pick you up right in the middle of your mess – right in the middle of the heart ache – and love you back to life. From the hard endings to seemingly impossible odds- nothing is too big for God to meet us right where we are and the stories of people in this book prove it.

To help along your study group, or your individual walk with God, the book also contains a Reader’s Guide by Kate Etue. Filled with pages of reflection points and scripture references, the guide helps you to work through what you’re reading and allows you to digest fully what you’ve just placed in your noggin.

Max gives the reader a fuller & deeper understanding of God’s heart & transforms your mind’s outlook on grace. With a multi-faceted perspective that leaves you reflecting on the beauty of who our God truly is – Grace is a recommended read for people in all walks of life. From reminding us of who we truly have in our corner, to encouraging the newcomer, this is a book you could fit onto anyone’s shelf.
