Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the heels of Philip Yancey's best-selling The Jesus I Never Knew comes this equally insightful exploration of grace, the most powerful force in the universe and our only hope for love and forgiveness. Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award, the Christian Book of the Year Award, and the Retailers Choice Award.

Synopsis:

In What's So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy? Yancey sets grace in the midst of life's stark images, tests its mettle against horrific "ungrace". Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace's life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear?

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.
