Bestselling author Max Lucado explains that if teens let Gods grace change them, shape them, and strengthen them, their lives will never be the same.
Todays teens are being shaped by the pressures and disappointments of the world. But Max Lucado encourages them to take a close look at what can shape their hearts and their futures from the inside outGods grace.
As Max explains, "Gods grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A whitewater, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you." Wild Grace gives teens an understanding of how grace can change their lives in powerful ways, even when those lives are messed up, off track, or in trouble. Each chapter describes another miracle that happens when we allow Gods grace to work on us and through us:
Grace is Gods decision to change everything. Good-bye, earthly labels. Stupid. Unpopular. Ugly. Failure. No longer. You arent who they say you are. You are who He says you are. Spiritually alive. Connected to God. Amazing.
Teens will be convinced that God knew what He was doing when He made them and His grace is always there, ready to work wonders that are bigger than anything this world has to offer.
More than 120 million readers have found inspiration and encouragement in the writings of Max Lucado. He lives with his wife, Denalyn, and their mischievous mutt, Andy, in San Antonio, Texas, where he serves the people of Oak Hills Church.

I think it is recommended for 13 years and up. It's a repackaged, repurposed, and redesigned version of Grace for youth groups everywhere. The pages feature a layout designed for shorter attention spans - littered with inset quotes, sidetrack stories (that do tie in nicely with the main content), and inline discussion/personal study questions.
There are some illustrations that are exclusive to Wild Grace, but the bulk of the material appears in the main book. The biggest difference is presentation. Lucado (and his team) make the effort to reach young adult readers with a message that perhaps often escapes them because it is only addressed in "more serious" books, intended for adults with the appeal (in teen eyes) of a stale tuna fish sandwich. Kudos for expanding the audience and trumpeting this comforting message.

Ruth C.5 Stars Out Of 5Mind changing.November 11, 2012Ruth C.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book portrays God as the loving Father He is. His grace is enough for every person, no matter how far from Him they have gone. I love Max Lucado's style of writing. It is griping and real and fresh and full of love and grace and truth.
