What's So Amazing about Grace? by Philip Yancey
What's So Amazing about Grace?

erossol, January 29, 2010

Philip Yancy's book, What's So Amazing About Grace?, is a must read, especially for anyone who grew up in an evangelical church. It's both painfully honest about the "ungrace" shown by many born-again believers and hopeful in its insistence that genuine grace as found in the Bible is scandalous because it offers forgiveness and blessing to guilty people--like me--with whom God rightly ought to be angry and who deserve His wrath.

It is also a wonderful introduction to those who want to better understand what is at the heart of Christianity--why grace really is unique to the God of the Bible.

This book has affected my life probably more than any other book I've read. And the CD audiobook is an excellent means of "reading" it.
