Christians hear and understand that they are "saved by grace." But what other spiritual benefits can an understanding of grace reveal? What has God promised believers his grace will provide?
In the book The Promises of Grace, Bryan Chapell offers a careful look at the beauty of grace and all it brings to believers--not "more money and fewer headaches" but "confidence of our relationship with" God. Chapell helps believers focus on the promises they can expect God to fulfill--promises of assurance of God's love, peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Spirit, and perseverance in trial. These blessings come with the understanding that because we cannot hang on to God, he hangs on to us.
Previously published as In the Grip of Grace, this revised edition offers a clear yet thorough look at the practical implications of God's grace. Study questions at the end of each chapter enhance the application for personal or small group study. In a warm, encouraging style, The Promises of Grace reveals the goodness of grace for everyday life.
