    Grace as seen in the lives of others ...

    I had been a Christian for almost 20 years, and that was 20 years ago, when I first began to truly understand Grace. I had failed my wife, my family, and my God. And I finally learned what Grace was all about. Though it was not the beginning of my understanding of Grace, Chuck Swindoll's The Grace Awakening made the biggest dent in my understanding of Grace back then; but every so often, I need a swift hit on the side of the head to remind me what Grace is all about.

    This year, Lee Strobel's The Case for Grace provided that hit. The book provides a series of biographical sketches, including his own, of men and women who, after living particularly trying lives, came to understand the nature of Grace in their own lives and found ways of sharing that Grace with others. The stories are well done, with enough detail to let the reader know the backgrounds, both the good and bad, of each character, but also provide keys to how they had discovered Grace and how it changed their lives. In some ways, each story echoed my own from 20 years earlier.

    My greatest disappointment as I read the book was finding men and women who had already been or who would have been highly successful whether they found Grace or not. I would like to have found a story or two of ordinary men and women, people from the working class, people who had to struggle with tight budgets, clogged drains, and broken cars, whose attitudes and actions had been touched by Grace. Lee Strobel's stories focus on those whose lives have made a visible impact - where many who are touched by Grace will find an appreciation for who and where they are, not so much changed by what they do, but by how they perceive the world in which God has already placed them. These stories may not be as inspiring, but they would give a more complete look at the effect of God's Grace on a broken world.

    Strobel begins by quoting Thomas C. Oden, "[Grace is necessary] to know truth, avoid sin, act well, pray fittingly, desire salvation, begin to have faith and persevere in faith. [Grace ... is nothing less than] the motivating power of the Christian life." The book accomplished this thesis for this reader. My thought is that it will for others as well.

    Lee Strobel never disappoints. This book is investigative in nature, like his others, with stories of people changed by miraculous grace.

    What a great book. Easy to read, thought provoking. Used one of the chapters to share at ladies group with non Christians and fellow Christians. Sometimes we think these books may be dry, hard slogging to read. Not this one.

    Christ loves us no matter what we do, how we see ourselves. We are unworthy but His grace, aaahhh, it defies explanation. This is a book that is worth sharing.

    Thanks to Lee Strobel for another inspiring book. I was moved to tears, but more importantly, to self-reflection by every account of grace and its transformational power. I am looking forward to sharing this treasure as a gift or a small group study. May God continue to use Mr. Strobel to share Christ with others.
