Book Review: Grace-by Max Lucado



In his latest book, Grace-more than we deserve, greater than we imagine Max Lucado teaches of the deep quality of unmerited love. In twelve chapters, he gives special new meaning to the presence of God in our lives.

This book saturated with scripture and examples of grace in our daily lives, Max brings freshness to Bible reading and study.

The book held my interest. It inspired me to show more grace to others in my life. At the end of this book Max Lucado includes a study guide. This feature is a plus for me. I intend to re-read this work and spend time studying grace.

Max always holds my attention. (I have read several of his works over the years.) He uses metaphors of modern life to allow the reader to identify with the topic. This style of writing quickly draws the reader into the ‘discussion’, making him or her feel at ease.

Max conveys Biblical truth in a way that the concept stays with the reader. He includes scripture throughout this book. The study guide, written by Kate Etue, follows a form for each in-depth chapter study, one section of which is a scripture review. Each of these sections is saturated with scripture readings and or questions to ponder.

I would highly recommend this book to believers wanting to grow in their faith. There is a participant’s guide available for small group use. The publisher has made this book available in DVD form for small group. It comes in an unabridged audiobook, as well as e-book forms.


I was given a free copy of this book by Thomas Nelson through Booksneeze. In return, I was asked to give an unbiased and honest review.
