During Lent my church is studying What's So Amazing About Grace. We do two chapters every week. So, I have not read the whole book as yet. Mr. Yancey does explain very well what "Grace" is---a free gift from God that is not deserved or earned. He points out why all people need God's grace.
This is a teriffic book that I would highly recommend to anyone. Philip Yancey deals with the tough issues and difficult questions in our fallen world, and shows how only God's grace provides real answers. This book is thought-provoking and challenging---buy it, read it, and ask the Lord to help you apply its lessons to your life!!
