I bought this as a gift and heard great things from this person after reading this book. She said she laughed and she cried but was reminded to find her hope in Jesus. I would definitely recommend this book!
We are using it in our Life Group and are in awe of how frequently a similar message is preached on Sunday. God is always faithful to confirm what He wants us to remember. Max Lucado writes the truth in ways we can test and be sure. The Scriptures in the back match up perfectly. Some of the challenge questions require getting deeper and really make us think!
Grace by Max Lucado is not written as a theology book. It is written as a book that should/could/would help a christian walk through their christian life. He strives to make the point of just how big God's grace really is and that grace can be unique to each individual believer because each of us is unique as is our walk with God.
The author uses a lot of story telling which I think makes his books so popular because people can relate. They can remember stories. I happen to like books like this where I can learn or re-learn things without the use of 2 dictionaries and a thesaurus.
Whether you have been walking with God for 9 minutes or 90 years, there is always something to learn about the Grace of God.
And as with all his other books, there is a built in study guide.
I would not hesitate to loan this book out to people.
