The first book I read by Andy Stanley was "The Grace of God" - as he explored 'grace' through the Old and New Testament - I was impacted and hooked on Andy Stanley as a writer. Oscar Wilde said this and I quote: "If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again - there is no use in reading it at all". I know it is a book I'll read many times - but this time I'm reading it on Kindle.

The Grace of God by Andy Stanley
I have been looking for a book on God's grace that doesn't leave me feeling empty. This book did a pretty good job of it. The author takes us on a journey through the Bible from the very beginning of the creation of the world to the redeeming grace of God. It tells the stories of the Bible with a look into the grace of each one.
At first I felt it wasn't what I was looking for. It didn't feel cohesive. When I realized that it was going through different stories of the Bible, starting at the very beginning, and showing us how those graces are still relevant for us today it made more sense. It showed me how God's grace has been around since the beginning of the world, not just after Jesus death and resurrection.
I would recommend this book but don't go into it thinking you will just learn about God's grace post resurrection. You will learn that his amazing grace was there from the very start and see it in a whole new light.

Like at least one other reviewer I was hesitant to read The Grace of God. My hesitation, remarkably, was because I have read many books on the subject and came away feeling either chastised or bored. I was pleasantly surprised by Andy Stanley's treatment of the subject and found the book quite refreshing!

The Grace of God is an enjoyable and easy read not because it is simplistic but rather Stanley's down to earth style shines through each chapter. He is a great storyteller and is at his best when he is retelling familiar biblical stories. Andy Stanley's treatment of the subject of God's grace throughout the Old Testament was especially interesting and unusual in that not a lot of writers focus on God's grace as evidenced in the Old Testament. His retelling of the story of Jonah in particular was captivating as he drew out significant insights from the text that I had glossed over on many occasions. His conclusion that "grace has two sides: It is something to be received. It is something to be extended" is quite obvious but the journey of how he comes to that conclusion is fascinating and inspirational. His retelling of the stories of David and Nicodemus were also quite memorable.

Grace is the thread that holds God's story together in Stanley's understanding and he makes the truth of this challenging without making one feel defeated. His applications,insights and encouragement for us to make grace known to all people not just those inside the church is heartfelt and compelling!

This book was provided to me by Thomas Nelson Publishers and Graf-Martin Communications.

Format: Paperback
In his new book, The Grace of God, author Andy Stanley explains and expounds on this much discussed and much misunderstood aspect of the character of God. Beginning with God's grace in creation and continuing up to God's grace for both our todays and tomorrows, Stanley discusses a deep theological subject in an accessible fashion with a conversational tone. This work is not one that sets out to define or defend certain doctrinal positions but rather to invite the reader to take hold of the grace that God is ever-present to give.

I found the book enlightening particularly in the opening chapters. Stanley does a great service by dispelling the commonly believed myth that the God of the Old Testament is fundamentally different from the God of the New Testament. The opening chapters reveal God's grace in action from the first words of Scripture. This grace is just as active in both Testaments. Anyone who is interested in learning more about God's character and nature but is intimidated by weighty theological tomes will profit greatly from this book.

The Grace of God by Andy Stanley captures the attention with the first paragraph.
'Grace. It's what I crave the most when my guilt is exposed. The very thing I'm hesitant to extend when I'm confronted with the guilt of others-especially when their guilt has robbed me of something I consider valuable.'
Mr. Stanley brings out many facets of grace in the13 chapters as he walks you through many bible events from a fresh perspective. He starts with creation, goes through the Garden of Eden, highlights many bible characters and brings the fresh insight of grace right up to the church of today.
Each chapter has a highlighted sentence which underscores the main point. I found it a bit distracting to read but it is effective in that it draws your eye to it.
The nature of the book lends itself to thoughtful reading and even putting the book down after each chapter in order to fully absorb the authors' points.
The information Stanley provides about a variety of biblical events and characters gave me a new appreciation for them. He presents biblical life lessons through the lens of grace that, at times, takes your breath away at God's faithfulness and love.
It is a thoughtful book that lends itself well to being studied.
I would highly recommend this book for those who want to study more about grace.
