The Grace Awakening calls all Christians to wake up and reject living in such legalistic, performance-oriented bondage. The God of the universe has given us an amazing, revolutionary gift of grace and freedom. This freedom and grace sets us apart from every other "religion" on the face of the earth. In this best-selling classic, Chuck Swindoll urges us not to miss living a grace-filled life. Freedom and joy--not lists and demands and duties--await all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Read by Richard Fredricks. Abridged audio CD; approximately 4 hours; 4 CDs.
Maybe youve known about grace for years. You grew up with it. You heard about it from the pulpits, in Bible classes, from radio and TV preachers. But maybe theres more to grace than they told you. Yes, its Gods "unmerited favor to lost sinners," but did anyone tell you how grace can change you? How it can revolutionize the way you live? Grace can give you freedom. Freedom to be creative, spontaneous. Freedom to think outside the box. Grace can make you want to know God, to be close to Him. Grace can cure your fears, improve your outlook, help you look at life through the lens of joy rather than the fog of pessimism. Grace can strengthen your relationships, giving you freedom to be yourself - and freedom to let others be themselves - without feeling a need to judge, control, or manipulate one another. And yes, grace is Gods incredible gift to each of us that shows His love daily in overflowing measures, giving us reason for hope and joy. For the growing number of people who feel that there should be something more to their walk with God than the sometimes grim face of religion, The Grace Awakening offers a glorious alternative: the truth that sets us free.
