Format: Hardcover
Bestselling author Charles R. Swindoll has updated his classic title THE GRACE AWAKENING for a new generation of readers waking up to the truth that God is good and grace is the message of the gospel. As he writes, "Having tasted the sweet delights of liberty in Christ, more and more in the Christian family are satisfied with nothing less."
Renowned as a Christian communicator, Swindoll serves as senior pastor of Stonebriar Community Church, chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary and host of the internationally syndicated radio program "Insight for Living." A prolific and award-winning author, he has written more than 30 bestselling books and received 11 Gold Medallion Awards, with this book qualifying as one of his best ever.
Exhibiting candor and conviction, Swindoll contrasts liberty with legalism and warns readers to be wary of the three tools of legalism, or grace-killers, as he calls them: doctrinal heresy, ecclesiastical harassment and personal hypocrisy. As he explains it, legalists disturb and distort by twisting truth, spying and enslaving, and lying and deceiving others.
In the chapter titled "The Grace to Let Others Be," Swindoll compares the two different dimensions of grace. "Vertical grace centers on our relationship to God. It is amazing. It frees us from the demands and condemnation of the Mosaic Law," he writes. "Horizontal grace centers on our human relationships. It is charming. It frees us from the tyranny of pleasing people and adjusting our lives to the demands and expectations of human opinion."
To encourage readers as they awaken to grace, Swindoll reminds them that at least three things are involved in the process: it takes time, it requires pain and it means change.

Legalists will read this book and quickly misunderstand the author's perspective as being a license for libertine behavior. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. The grace of G-d shed abroad in our hearts is powerful enough to keep the believer in Christ, in holiness, without rules, regulations and the doctrines of man.
For me this book took the "fear" out of religon. Yes "the fear of the L-rd is the beginning of wisdom." But there is a "fear that hath torment," which is the fear produced by dictators who subject their congregations to a "yoke of bondage," using fear as a motivation for serving the L-rd.
Charles Swindoll has written a beautiful that is perfect for those who don't know what it is like to experience the "joy" of their "salvation."

The purpose of Grace Awakening is clear: God's grace gives us the freedom to be ourselves and to not smother others so much that we get in God's way for their lives!
Among the many excellent points Swindoll covers include:
1. Jesus focused on the heart instead of a list of requirements.
2. Strategies for resisting legalism.
3. Principles of disagreeing agreeably.
4. Working in the flesh is unacceptable to the Lord.
5. Characteristics of those who display grace to others.
6. Be careful of comparing yourself to others!
7. While other people may be impressed with us, God isn't!
8. Areas that can keep us from growing in grace.
An excellent and highly recommended book, allow God to work through you to extend grace to others!

Few could disagree that Charles Swindoll is a gifted communicator, both through the written and spoken (worldwide Christian radio) media. As an author or co-author now of over seventy successful books, he has had a tremendous impact in spreading the Christian gospel message around the globe. I was blessed to be able to sit for ten years under his pastorship.

The Grace Awakening, Swindoll's best-selling work, is able to systematically respond to and dismantle movements of legalism within the Christian community. Never bombastic in its approach, the book always treats Christians of other persuasions with respect. It truly presents the message of grace "graciously."

I particularly enjoyed the rich imagery in the book, such as the retelling of the story of freed Civil-War era slaves who, although emancipated, nevertheless refused to leave the plantations---a striking portraiture of Christians who remain in legalistic bondage, inspite of the freedom that Christ wishes for them to experience.

For additional reading, I recommend highly:
