Grace is Greater by Kyle Idleman - REVEIWED

About the Book:
No sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God's grace cannot transform the heart and rewrite the story. But grace is so hard for us to understand.

It doesn't make sense. 
It's not fair. 
It can't possibly cover over what I've done. 
Perhaps nothing is as difficult to explain as God's grace. The best way--perhaps the only real way--to understand it is to experience it.

In Grace Is Greater, bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman leads us past our hang-ups toward an understanding of grace that is bigger than our mistakes, our failures, our desire for revenge, and our seemingly impossible situations. Through powerful stories of grace experienced, this book will help you truly grasp God's grace . . . even if the Christians around you have failed to live it.

My Thoughts:
God’s grace to you is that he will work through your pain to accomplish his good purpose in your life.” (p. 182)

Grace seems elusive sometimes.   Especially when you are hurting.  This isn’t a book about hurting people, but rather how God reveals His grace to us through every circumstance of our lives.   To be honest, sometimes doubt and fear overtake our hearts and minds, and we choose to refuse the grace that God so freely offers to us.

This is a very thoughtfully written book, and I’m still working through parts of it.  Like many people, I struggle to accept God’s great love for me fully, because I don’t feel “worthy”.  But that’s not what grace is about.  Grace can’t be earned, and I’ll never be worthy.  But, when I open my heart to receive God’s grace, my life is transformed in ways I can’t begin to understand.

I am happy to recommend this book to believers who want to go deeper in their understanding of God’s glorious grace!  He is an amazing God who loves us far more than we will even begin to understand.  That’s what grace is all about!!
